Summary: The description, specs, photo, pricing and user ratings for the Springfield Armory Range Officer Operator pistol.

Manufacturer’s Description

Springfield Armory‘s Range Officer Operator is a 1911-style semiauto pistol built on a forged steel national match frame (either carbon steel or stainless steel) with a forged carbon steel national match slide (either carbon steel or stainless steel), and chambered in .45 ACP or 9mm. Springfield says this pistol is the self-defense version of its original Range Officer pistol, which it says is as precision-built but less-expensive than its Trophy Match and TRP models because it lacks some extras.

Other features include:

  • A 5″, stainless steel, match-grade barrel with a fully supported ramp;
  • a precision-fit barrel bushing;
  • a lowered and flared ejection port;
  • a standard guide rod;
  • a picatinny accessory rail;

  • checkered cocobolo grips with the Cross Cannon logo;
  • a flat, checkered mainspring housing;
  • an extended beavertail safety with a memory bump for positive activation;
  • a long aluminum match-grade trigger;
  • a skeletonized Delta hammer; and
  • two seven-round, flush-fit, blued steel .45 ACP magazines, or two nine-round, flush-fit stainless steel 9mm magazines.
