Springfield 1911 Range Officer Elite 10mm
Springfield’s Range Officer Elite Operator in 10mm is the latest model in their 1911 lineup. Offering all the premium features found in the RO Elite series, the Elite Operator in 10mm brings the power for those wanting magnum-like ballistics. The RO Elite ships in a well-made nylon range bag with 2 8-round stainless-steel magazines, red and green fiber optic replacement rods, and a standard gun lock. The range bag is spacious enough to fit a couple guns and several magazines.
The RO Elite 10mm is a full size 5-inch 1911 with a match grade barrel and fully supported chamber. A fully supported chamber contains the high pressure and results in less case bulging and, at worst, prevents explosions. Like all Springfield 1911’s, the RO Elite has a fully forged steel frame and slide that is precision fit for smooth operation and coated with Springfield’s corrosion resistant Black-T finish. The frame also features a full front rail for your accessories.
A red-fiber optic front sight allows for quick sight acquisition is paired with a tactical rack white-dot (windage adjustable) rear sight. The tactical rack allows for single-handed manipulation of the slide. Front and rear slide serrations provide a positive grip when racking the slide. Ambidextrous thumb safety makes the RO Elite comfortable for both left and right-handed shooters. The hammer is skeletonized with horizontal serrations for reduced weight and improved grip. An extended beavertail is used for a more comfortable grip and protection from getting pinched by the reciprocating slide.
Springfield used their Gen 2 speed trigger which is extremely crisp and light. It is also skeletonized with vertical serrations for added control. The magazine release can be switched to either side. Gray/Black G10 grips are textured and thin profile. G10 is lighter and more durable than traditional wood grips and have no moisture absorption. A finely checkered mainspring housing sits on the back of the frame and provides added grip when shooting those heavy 10mm loads. All parts on the Springfield RO Elite Operator are forged from steel which offer the best in strength and performance.
MSRP on the 1911 Range Officer Elite Operator 10mm is $1,145.00, but you can find one on GunsAmerica from your local dealer for less.
