One of the cooler guns from Shot Show this is the new Springfield Armory Range Officer 1911 9mm. It’s been flying under the radar a bit this week, overshadowed by the new four inch XDs. We’re big fans of the RO line from Springfield, it’s a lot of gun from a reputable maker for not a lot of money. We also like 9mm 1911s a lot, because they’re amazing to shoot. We think the Springfield Armory Range Officer 1911 9mm is going to be a big hit.
