    Well, in all the 1911's I've purchased, my Springfield LW RO Compact is really getting the likes from me. After todays range session, I cannot see myself shooting anything else for a while. Here's how my list started:

    1. Springfield Mil Spec 5"
    2. Springfield Champion 4"
    3. Auto Ordnance 5"
    4. Taurus Officer model 3.5"
    5. Springfield G.I. 5"
    6. Ruger LW CMD 4.25"
    7. Ruger CMD stainless 4.25"
    8. Springfield LW RO Compact 4"

    Now granted I've yet to shoot or own the higher end ones, i.e. DW, LB and you know the others. I can honestly say, the RO Compact is tickling my fancy for the moment and if you get a chance to try one, I think you might be mildly surprised at its performance.:D

    For the $, they are tough to beat, IMO;

    I can relate lol. My 9mm RO Elite Compact is not only my favorite daily carry but the most fun at the range. I only wish SA made it (fixed sight version) in a 5" without a rail.

    Very nice, Doc - I like the finish on the Elite more so than the on the 1st Gen;

    Thanks! Over the years I've had two other pistols finished by Walter Birdsong in his Black T and was very happy with it. That's what convinced me to sell my standard RO Compact to get this one.
