    Never shot one, but I fondled one a few years ago at SHOT show and was impressed. For the money, it seemed like a quality 1911.

    My Springfield is a GI in stainless.

    It hasn't hiccuped yet on any factory or reloaded ammo.

    Reliable for sure.

    The "Range Officer" is one of the few Springers still made entirely in the USA.

    Mine puts every other M1911 I own to shame.

    If you can find one for less than $699, snap it up!

    I know Nagels gets blasted here all the time, but I got my RO there for 750 a few weeks ago
