Forged in fire, the rugged Range Officer® Elite handles the 10mm cartridge with the kind of casual dominance that gave your grandpa his bone-crushing handshake.

There was a day when the 10mm earned a reputation for punishing recoil and cracked frames. Thankfully, those days are over. The Range Officer® Elite is built on a forged frame and slide and features an upgraded Black-T® finish, G10 grips, and ambi safety. The 5″ stainless steel match-grade barrel delivers on-target rounds with repeatable precision.

The Range Officer Elite is ready for the range and sports an accessory rail for the mounting of lights and lasers. Did you want that gift-wrapped, sir?



Built for a long life and cutting-edge performance, the Springfield Armory® Range Officer® Elite features rock-solid construction and materials. The frame and slide are both manufactured from forged steel, giving you a pistol that will last a lifetime, and a hammer-forged barrel for accuracy and durability.


The forged stainless steel barrel is match grade and features a fully supported chamber that is reinforced for a lifetime of heavy use.
