$650 For LNIB Range Officer

My second favorite LGS has a used, but like new Springfield Range Officer. Comes with the case, and everything it's supposed to come with. They have it priced at $650. Good deal?

I bought a lnib range officer Thursday for 600 otd , but it only came with 1 mag and box. The rest of the gear was missing . I would give $650 for another one if I found it .

I have noticed that the prices on those have come down a bit from what they were when they first hit the market.

Buy new as the prices have come down. A couple of extra bucks new would be worth it.

Not long ago RO's were $1000 in my area.


$650 used, I'd want to shoot it first.

I bought one a few weeks back and paid 750 shipped from Kentucky gun co. Had I been a week sooner, I could have got it for 679. Anyway I felt I got a good deal. They are at least 900 here with tax.

My gun pleased me so much, I am already thinking of one in 9mm.

I love the sights. I am not wild about the oddly sized grips, the ambi cut in them, and the torx grip screws. All that has been undone.

If it shoots good then that is a good deal.

Make them an offer. Say $600 out the door. See what they say. All they can say is no. Then you know where you stand.

If it's a lemon Springfield will fix it, but you'll be out shipping costs. I'd just buy new even if they lowered the price just to avoid the trouble of shipping and not having my pistol for awhile.

Yes, it's a good deal. Understand that the Range Officer model is intended for entry level competitors who might want to add features more to their liking than the factory options. It is also a very good range 1911 right out of the box.

I went back there the other day and it was gone already. Guess someone thought it was a good deal.

Thanks I am thinking about getting gun for single stack to use in USPSA and the RO would be great for this. I am new to it and may want to go with .45 anyway I am not sure?
