having "operator" in the name but not having a railed frame is definitely throwing me off

Agreed 100%. I really like it though. MSRP is not too shocking. Might be the next one for me after the Defender.

Nice. Love the two-tone with blued slide. Also like the sights.

What Springfield had to say about that on Facebook.


Springfield Armory The new Ronin Operator represents a new role for the “Operator” name. With Operator being synonymous with high quality and performance, Springfield Armory chose to expand its usage beyond simply railed 1911 pistol models.​

I wish they had left the FCS off as well. Will the carbon steel slide play well with the stainless frame?

XTRazzer 01-16-2020 04:35 PM

Anyone know if this has the misfortune of an ILS?

Off the top of my head, that’s a better wear couple than stainless on stainless. Would have to dig-up some wear data to give a better answer.

I don't know but I would doubt it. SA has been phasing out the ILS system for a few years now so it'd be odd if a new model had it.

The big question still remains------- is the ejector pinned?

LOL.... :biglaugh::rofl:

Billy1911 01-16-2020 07:30 PM

I like the font and lettering on the slide . Its a good looking pistol .
The price point is nice at 850.00

I just wish they would start offering checkered versions of their
pistols at the 11 to 1200.00 price point

Applies to my RRA Operator. :biglaugh: I really like the look of the Ronin, gonna have to get one. I've been after a full size 9mm w/ FCS and non-target rear sight for quite a while.

Is Kimber now making S/A 1911"s?

Asking for a friend! :)

Ricky T 01-16-2020 09:12 PM

I don't like the name, *** is a Ronin?

I like the gun. Erase the name please.

dsk 01-16-2020 09:27 PM

I don't like forward serrations to begin with, but I especially dislike square-cut ones that extend past the 90-degree cut where the recoil spring tunnel meets the slide. Colt found out the hard way with their early M45A1s that serrations like that create stress points which can eventually cause the slide to crack in that area. Either use round-cut serrations or else don't extend them that far back on the slide.

azuredragon 01-16-2020 11:45 PM

I guess the silver lining for those that really want this but also would like a checkered front strap is that you don't need to pay for a refinish after checkering a stainless frame

Dr DEATH 01-17-2020 12:02 AM

I really like it except it needs front strap checkering. Cmon!

Ronin is a leaderless Samurai, or something like that.

And it is also one badass movie starring Robert De Niro and Jean Reno.

When I saw this one the SA website, the movie was the first thing I thought of.

I will seriously be looking at getting one of these...likes the looks (and the price)

Pollux 01-17-2020 06:17 AM

And I thought it had been named after the Special Ops/Delta Force/Navy Seal/MARSOC guy that helped design the pistol. :D

Thanks, didn't know about the samurai or the movie. I guess I need to get out more. Still don't like the name.

i got this email a couple of weeks ago in response to a question

Thank you for contacting Springfield Armory. The only models of 1911s that we make that still have the ILS system in them are going to be the California firearms.

Thank you,

The XSE has those same serrations.
