Late Christmas present 1911
« on: January 16, 2016, 05:41:54 PM »

I have been wanting a 1911 in .45 caliber for a long time, I have been watching Springfield Armory's webpage while they release their new pistols for 2016. I liked the looks and reviews of the "range officer" , but as my eyes get more "seasoned" I have a harder time picking up black on black sights. The new "range officer operator" comes with a fiber optic front sight. I ordered one from j's sport supply in powers, and it came in the next day.
I ran out and picked it up today, i'll clean it up tonight and hopefully get out shooting tomorrow.
It seems like a well built gun, comes with a heavy duty case, paddle holster, 2 mags, double mag holder, and two pieces of fiber to change the front sight if you would like.
My list of guns i want continues to get shorter.... Not go away, it just gets shorter. :)
I'll post a report after shooting it.

Nice!  I have a Taurus 1911, definitely not the quality of yours, but I do love the look and feel of them.

Very nice. That exact gun on my short list as well. Hope to hear you like it. Now that I've spent (most of) my 2016 boat/fishing tackle budget, a new gun would be nice. An AR15 build has moved up the list as well.
