Discontinued: 1911 Range Officer® Elite Handguns
Forged in fire, the rugged Range Officer® Elite handles the 10mm cartridge with the kind of casual dominance that gave your grandpa his bone-crushing handshake.
There was a day when the 10mm earned a reputation for punishing recoil and cracked frames. Thankfully, those days are over. The Range Officer® Elite is built on a forged frame and slide and features an upgraded Cerakote® finish, G10 grips, and ambi safety. The 5″ stainless steel match-grade barrel delivers on-target rounds with repeatable precision.
The Range Officer Elite is ready for the range or defensive applications and sports an accessory rail for the mounting of lights and lasers. Did you want that gift-wrapped, sir?
