    On another site, was a Springfield RO 1911 in 9mm. Has anyone come across one of these 1911's? I read they are new and still not shown on Springfield's website. The two I saw are offered at $899. I'm in the Houston area if anyone can shed some light on the subject. Thanks.

    Happen to walk into my LGS this morning and BANG! Two, one in the case and one in the back. They received both just last week. If anyone is interested in a new 1911 9mm model from Springfield, send me a PM. I can tell you it was under $800 and the shop is located in Northwest Harris Co. Thanks.

    The Range Officer is a very good pistol. Beware of aftermarket 9mm magazines. Go with OEMs. There is a another company that makes 9mm 1911 mags. Use the same initials as the ones that come with the Springfield. They are not the same, but a lot cheaper.

    I was in McBride's in Austin this morning and they had both a 9mm and a .45 Range Officer, which I was able to handle, Nice weapon. Both were marked at $799.

    Picked up the RO 9mm this morning and it was $769.99 plus TT&L. For now it's just eye candy, but a trip to the range Sunday will tell.......

    I bought a Smith Pro Series 1911 in 9mm.

    Mags are made of unobtanium.
    It likes 147g ammo. Doesn't cycle well using 115g even after a trip back to Smith.

    A friend of my wife's bought a SA 1911 Range Office in the compact size. She is a little frustrated with it as every magazine seems to have a FTF. I initially thought it was limp wristing but I shot it and paid particular attention to locking my wrist and still had FTF.

    She was shooting 115 grain. I suggested that maybe she step up to 124 gr and see if that helped. I know that 1911 require a breakin of about 500 rounds or so but my 2 1911s in 9mm from a different manufacturer ate any ammo right out of the box.

    The SA mags seem really stiff too compared to the mags for my 1911.

    Thoughts?
