Earlier today I stopped into a lgs and the guy said "look what we got".
It was a Springfield Range Officer in 9mm. Neither of us knew they were making them in 9mm and it isn't listed on their web site. It was $835 and this particular shot tends to be MSRP most of the time.

This one is likely still there. I'm not in the market for a target gun.
The trigger felt OK, but the slide felt a little rough but that might be the park.

I paid 750 for my RO,plenty of other places sell them for that price so theres no need to pay more.

I like my RO allot but would never consider a 1911 in 9MM,but I do love shooting other brands and guns in 9MM like CZ75s for instance . YMMV

Cool! I'm going to have to look for one. I had no idea. I love 1911 9mm's, not for carry or self defense, but for a range toy. They are just a joy to shoot and cheaper on my wallet too.

One was posted on my local forum around midnight, it was sold when I saw it a few minutes ago. $729.00 +tax.

Good luck to those who wants one.

I will second the GOVT frame in 9-mil is pure heaven for range-play.....or SD with the right round. The price of 9-mil has not fallen back to the price it was prior to the panic, but it may sooner-or-later. If you reload....what the heck anyway. I just don't want a plastic or pot-metal 9-mil, or any other brand that shoots a 9-mil. I want my 1911 Springer that shoots 9-mil.:)

I also saw one of these 9mm RO's last Saturday at a gun show here in Raleigh, NC. It was marked $750 and it was definitely a 9mm. The trigger was VERY sweet. I passed (for now) because I wasn't really even considering a 9mm 1911, but the idea may very well grow on me.

Or shot-placement. Got lots of COP buddies. Two have confirmed clean kills. One was a head-shot on a perp that had a knife to a lady's throat. The other was a head-shot on a crazed Chinese cook with a meat-clever in his hand. Neither one got up and walked off....they were hauled away.

Not surprising that SA has done a 9mm RO considering how popular the 9mm Loaded Target is. Essentially they are the same gun except the RO is steel not SS and has no forward serrations or ambi safety.
