Ranger II 9mm

After much back and forth with several makes/models, I ordered the Ranger in a 9mm....10 weeks out in getting it. I guess I'm just looking for positive support that I pulled the right trigger - no pun intended. My intent is not for carry, but rather for cheaper shooting than my .45 at the range or just plinking. I like the 1911 in my .45 Kimber and wanted a complimenting feel in a 9mm. Dependability, accuarcy? What can I expect? Thanks.

My early Christmas present was a Ranger II in 9mm. I have the best wife ever!!!... and that was before I got the pistol!

I cannot shoot well enough to do this pistol justice. It makes one ragged hole after another. Best pistol I have ever owned! The only change I am going to make is that I will be sending it off for Hard Hat finish.

I did the same as you, wanted to have a 9mm 1911for the range and got the Ranger II and have been very pleased with it. Accurate, I actually shoot it better than my WC CQB Compact in .45, reliable. I would not hesitate to use it for a carry gun.

Not a big fan of the RecoilMaster system, but the quality of the pistol makes up for that.

You should be pleased with your purchase. Good luck.

I cant give any feedback for the 9mm selection, however, I carry the Ranger II in .45 every day on duty and off. It is very accurate, and easy to manage. I added fiber-optic sights. Other than that, it is perfet the way it came. I cannot imaging you will be disappointed with your choice. If you are, I will be glad to discuss transitioning the 9mm to my office.

Hope you are happy with your choice. I know, I am...

I replaced the RM system in my Ranger II 9MM with a FLGR. Much better IMO.

Has anyone else put a FLGR in their Ranger II? If so, did it take any special work, or just fit in?

Thanks

Use a Commander guide rod. You may have to shorten the length a bit. Just grind until it looks right. Because theRanger has a bull barrel. you'll have to drill a hole in the GR for a take-down pin(paper clip). Because of the dimensions the slide is milled to, I had a really hard time finding a reverse plug that would work without cutting one down, and I ended up using the reverse plug from the Recoil Master itself. You could measure the RM reverse plug and cut one to the right length, but I'm not a machinist and have no access to a latch or mill. It works fine. You'll use a commander recoil spring, but be sure check it for stacking and if it stacks, remove 1/2 coil at a time until it doesn't do it any more.
