Nice piece

Can you tell me your sight set up to include sight height?

Rear appears to be 10-8 in either .325 or .375 height?

Front appears to be Gold bead.... front sight height?

Ammo and is POA POI the same from up close out to 25 yards?

Thanks in advance

Got my Daughter an RO Elite LW Champion in 45 acp for her upcoming Birthday.

I like pretty much everything about the pistol except for the 'slim line' grips.

The 'feel' they impart is very 'flat' and 'square'. Like holding a 2x4 in your hand (only slimmer). There is also a very pronounced 'edge' at the front of the G10 grips.

Not a big deal, I have two pair of VZ grips already ordered, so she can take her pick of colors and profile.

We will have to see how it shoots, but it appears to be very well made.

Trigger is very nice, no creep, breaks clean. A bit heavy (probably 6 lbs.) but I can likely get it down to 4.5 - 5-ish with a sear spring adjustment.

Got Her some Wilson Combat 8 round mags to go with it, some electronic muffs, Custom Gun Belt, Galco SS holster, Galco dual mag pouch.

Will report back after June 6th when we know if it shoot or not.

I'm sure we will get some pics. I know she will want to shoot it that same day (weather permitting).

Probably set up some of the steel targets for her.

Don't know which set of grips she will want to have on it...but I don't care for Factory Slim-Line grips, so I took those off for now.

My new to me 93 model. As it looks now as to how I got it. Blasted the frame and slide top to get the matte finish. Added a flat mainspring(now it’s a Wilson stainless). Hogue grips. Wilson thumb safety. Wilson mag chute. And grip tape on the front strap. Black trigger is out of my 01 mil-spec.

Champion Operator needs a front sight

Hi Guys. First time posting here hope it works. I bought a used Champion Operator and the sights are stock from what I can gather. The front sight is pretty dim but my main dislike is it does not have a white circle around it. The rear two does so naturally this makes it harder to pick up yhe front sight. I had a trigicon night sight lose the white portion of the sight on a sig 229 I own. I was wondering if this may have happened here on this one. Either way I'm going to replace the front sight. Any suggestions on a good night sight with white dot?

Champion in .38 super

I really like the Champion RO. I got one in 9mm and ordered a .38super barrel for it from Jarvis Barrel co. Drops right in with no fitting. All you need is the magazine. Awesome.
