Thumbs up Springfield Armory Range Officer .45 Mirror Polished

I finished up this stainless Springfield Armory 1911-A1 Range Officer the other day. Haven't had the chance to shoot one of these yet, but I hear they're pretty nice.

Well, you missed the chance to shoot the living snot out of your customer's gun before polishing it up and removing the evidence.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1946 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

It's tempting sometimes! I've got a .357 mag Coonan waiting its turn, and sometimes I hear it whispering to me from there in the safe

I know of a few customers who carry their polished guns, at least occasionally. Next time one comes in for touching up, I will post a few before and after photos.

I'm interested in seeing the Coonan before and after pics, I have one and soon the new Coonan 45. A few more weeks. What's the charge for a 1911?

It will be a few weeks yet before the Coonan's turn comes up, but when it does, I will definitely post a thread with before and afters. Just sent you a PM with pricing info
