GENESEO, Ill., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Springfield Armory®, a leading manufacturer of high quality handguns and other firearms since 1974, is proud to announce its latest endeavor, the .45-caliber Range Office® Compact handgun. Taking many of the beloved features of its Range Officer®, which has been described as a "bare bones Model 1911, except where it matters," the Range Officer® Compact offers the same forged steel and aluminum alloy construction that fans of the original have come to rely on, but in a smaller, lighter package.
The barrel of this compact model is just four inches, with the overall length clocking in at 7.6 inches and a height of five inches. The RO Compact features a low-profile snag-free rear sight and a red, fiber-optic front sight, dovetailed into the slide, that helps the shooter get on target faster and easier. The RO Compact comes in a sturdy case, with a holster, double magazine pouch, and two magazines, which passes savings onto the customer.
Chad Dyer, Springfield Armory®'s marketing manager, said of the RO Compact, "We are excited to offer a lighter-weight handgun that is easy to shoot, easy to pack, and performs great. This is a competitive option for people who don't want to sacrifice performance, but who still want the convenience of a smaller firearm. This model is small enough to easily carry, and built alongside some of the highest-end firearms in our line "
Priced at an affordable $989, the RO Compact features an integrally ramped and supported barrel, which helps with reliable feeding, and has a shorter frame, holding one less round than a full-size 1911 would. The magazines this handgun ships with hold six rounds each, which creates a long enough grip that will help the shooter keep a strong grip on the frame.
"The RO Compact has the same excellent design that we use on all of our 1911s, and we're proud of the construction and efficiency that this model offers," Dyer said.
This handgun conceals better than a full-sized pistol, and those that carry on a regular or daily basis will appreciate its lightweight platform. The RO Compact begins shipping in August. For more information about the RO Compact handgun, visit Springfield Armory® online today.
