Springfield Armory 1911 Range Officer 9mm 5″ Barrel 9+1 PI9129L
When we introduced the 1911 Range Officer® for the competitive shooter, we were surprised at the response. Serious shooters who care about the details welcomed the precision features that made the Range Officer® perform far beyond its price tag.
We insisted on the best components and manufacturing techniques, like forged national match frames and slides, both features found on our top end 1911 models. A gun is only as good as its barrel, so we didn’t skimp there either. We added a national match stainless steel barrel and precisely fit bushing for maximum accuracy.
Many of those competition gun customers couldn’t help wonder why we didn’t make a self-defense version of the 1911 Range Officer®, so we did – in both 9mm and .45ACP calibers.
