The 1911 Range Officer Champion 45ACP is a perfect fit for those looking for a concealable 1911 that won’t weigh them down. While a normal, all steel 1911 can weigh over two and a half pounds empty, the .45ACP Champion weighs a staggering 30 ounces, thanks to the bigger hole in the barrel. That’s quite a difference when it’s on the hip all day.
While the overall height is the same as that of the Range Officer® Operator®, the Champion™ includes a four-inch stainless steel match grade barrel as opposed to the Government size five-inch barrel. In the Champion™, Springfield uses a bull barrel fitted to the slide that houses a supported ramp to save wear and tear on the frame over time. As a result, Springfield can use lighter weight forged aluminum for the frame. That helps them shave weight for its intended carry mission.
The sights are all business, with a fiber optic up front and a low profile combat sight in the rear that won’t snag during the draw. For recoil control and function, Springfield used a dual-spring assembly that allows them to control precisely the recoil impulse in this smaller package, thereby ensuring reliable function with a minimum of fuss to the shooter.
The Range Officer® Champion™ ships with two 7-round magazines. Even though the Range Officer® Champion™ is smaller and lighter, you won’t have to sacrifice capacity for carry convenience.
