    Just joined the forum and I wanted to introduce myself. I'm retired from the Air Force and Northrop Grumman and have been living in Florida for about ten years.

    I recently (like last week) got my new Range Officer Compact and loving it. From what I've read on the forum that's considered normal, so "Say Hey"!

    Welcome to the forum (again!), and yes, buying an SA 1911 is usually a far from disappointing experience!

    Very fluffy kitty!

    Geezer, nah man; not the "steel" of my first Colt. It's the 9mm Compact, thickest barrel I've ever seen and shoots better than I can.

    What does your Range Officer compact 9mm magazine look like? In the description it says that it is sold with two 8 round magazines...however my magazines only have enough witness holes to account for 6 plus the one on the top of the deck although I can force 8 in without too much of a problem... Does this mean that I only have a 7 round magazine

    7 rounds in the stainless mags (I ordered two more from Springfield). One in the chamber. If I should need more, I'll call my neighbor Ed

    okay I just wanted to confirm because on the spec sheet on Springfield. Calm it claims they sell the Range Officer compact 9mm with 2 8 round magazines but the witness holes on the side of my magazine only count up to six holes plus the one that you would see on top but yet I could fit 8 so I think I'll just keep the standard 7 in it
