After almost ten years of wishing and wanting, I finally got my "unicorn". A stainless steel Springfield Armory range officer in 9mm. I've had a couple 1911s in the past but they've always been .45. 9mm versions are pretty rare around here and the local shops always wanted an arm and a leg to order them. I moved to a different area and talked to the manager of a shop that I frequent; two days later this came in. Lower than internet pricing to boot! Put 100 rounds through it the day after I got it and it's a nice shooter, very accurate and smooth. I did have a couple FTRB issues with it but chalk it up to it being a new gun that is pretty tight. Nonetheless I've started shopping for upgrades and have a Wilson Combat FLGR and flat wire 13lb spring as well as a set of Loc grips with stainless screws on the way. Thoroughly looking forward to putting more rounds through this beautiful piece of machinery!
