    Lunch break today = New 1911

    During my lunch break today I decided to skip the meal since I had late breakfast. I went to the 3 LGS to browse for new stuff. I hit the third one and I see they have a new Springfield Range Officer and I made the mistake of asking to hold it. (can anybody relate?) This gun has been in my wish list for some time so when I asked for the price I get a "well is marked $825 but today, for you... $725 and.....since you are military, take another $35 off" I was like, where is the hidden camera? This must be my lucky day! I double checked finish, tolerances, ramp and barrel and gladly paid $690 for this beauty.

    Nice! Not a 1911 guy myself, but its nice.

    Thats one expensive lunch break, shoulda just hit up a value menu instead / JK. i love goin and buying something I want, and I'll always give cool points for anybody buying another gun.

    Good lookin' gun. When may we expect a shooting report?

    What's that shorty shown in the "family" photo?

    Nice addition to the 1911 collection.

    I was very impressed with how tight the tolerances are on this pistol. I am very particular about that when I purchase a 1911 and this one is really tight. I cleaned it last night and compared it to my Dan Wesson and I although my DW is tight, the RO feels even better. Can't wait to go shoot it this weekend. I had some VZ zebra grips in my spare parts so I dressed her up a little.

    Very nice. And a good price to boot. I've been considering adding a Springfield to my collection as well.

    Looks great with the zebra grips. Congrats on a successful and healthy lunch! I know everytime I consider or buy a pistol I think "I should lose some weight so I can fit this one iwb too"
