Springfield Armory Announces RO Elite Operator 10mm 1911



The new Range Officer Elite is a solid 10…millimeters. (And it looks good, too.)

Springfield Armory knows what you want for Christmas 2018: Their RO® Elite 1911 semi-automatic pistol, now in the powerful 10mm chambering. That’s why they’ve released it in plenty of time to make its way into the stockings of shooting competitors, self-defenders, and even handgun hunters.

Featuring a 5-inch forged match-grade stainless-steel barrel with a fully supported chamber and a forged steel frame and slide, the RO Elite 10mm is gorgeous and hardy. Coated in Black-T®, the same treatment specified on Springfield Armory 1911s built for the FBI’s SWAT and Hostage Rescue Teams, this pistol is built to withstand the most punishing conditions. Equipped with an 18.5 lb. recoil spring, the RO Elite 10mm is well-balanced and soft shooting, taming the power of the hottest 10mm loads. A Picatinny rail allows operators to attach accessories, and slanted serrations on the front and the rear of the slide encourage easy manipulation of the slide.

The forged slide and frame, the heart and soul of Springfield Armory 1911s, sets this gun apart from competitors’ cast models on the market by surpassing them in both strength and durability. Springfield Armory engineers specifically designed the RO Elite 10mm to offer superior performance in the face of repeated recoil, and have built an incredibly strong 1911 that will last lifetimes.

A tactical rack white-dot rear sight allows for single-handed operation of the slide should the need arise. The fiber optic front sight provides quick and effortless target acquisition. Springfield Armory’s crisp Gen 2 speed trigger, ambidextrous thumb safety, and custom thin-line G-10 grips were designed specifically for the RO series and add premium features to the time tested 1911 platform. MSRP: $1,145.
