I will get better photos another time but check out these grips on my range officer. Vintage Watch parts with blue background.




I'd like to see some more pictures of those grips . Did you make them ?

Picked up my RO Compact 9mm yesterday.

Immediately dinged the dust cover handling it roughly while disassembled, then put a light idiot mark on the slide in reassembly. The slide stop detent sticks out just far enough to make things difficult. So far that's my only gripe. It's going to be carried a lot once shaken down at the range, so I'm not too worried about it. Definitely got it out of the way right off...

I'm going to trim the safety to a more low profile shape, then call it done.

I really enjoy my RO Champion . It is a great carry piece and range pistol .
I did not think I would enjoy a smaller then 5 inch 1911 pistol until I started
shooting this one .:)

RO compact 9mm accuracy

Is anyone having any success with accuracy with the RO compact in 9mm? I would appreciate details such as group size at what yardage. Short yardage as 7-10 yds doesn't hold much significance for me. Interested at what's happening around 25 yds. Also interested what ammo got you nice results. Thanks!
