New for 2016 is the 1911 Range Officer® Operator® model. Springfield Armory kept the same great “under the hood” features that made the original Range Officer® great, but added features to turn this pistol into a formidable self-defense pistol for carry or home use.
The five inch barrel with fully supported ramp provides an extended sight radius, making your job of getting fast hits on target even easier. Speaking of sights, the front is a shielded fiber optic tube while the rear is a low profile combat style that won’t snag during the draw.
There’s no reason a functional combat gun can’t look good. The 1911 Range Officer® Operator® sports a Parkerized finish that looks sharp and will ward off corrosion and rust. Checkered Cocobolo grips provide a firm hold without shredding carry holsters and clothes.
Serious 1911 fighting features are all there too. The classic flat mainspring housing is checkered for positive grip, and the extended beavertail safety includes a memory bump for positive activation. Add a long aluminum match grade trigger, skeletonized hammer, and rail for light or laser and this pistol is good to go.
When it’s time to get down to business, place your trust in a gun that’s built for the task. Try the Range Officer® Operator®. Are You Ready?™
