This was my first sale with Bud's and the transaction worked exactly as anticipated. No problems at all. Having the list of "preferred dealers" was especially helpful.
The Range Officer was bought to be a "starter" NRA Bullseye pistol. However, judging by the initial 100 rounds (nothing special American Eagle 230gr), I found that it has the capability of cleaning the targets at 25 and 50 yards if the shooter does his part. I can't wait to try it with match ammo to see what it can do.
The fit is tight and the slide is marked with the frame serial number. It does not have checkering on the front strap, but that is no problem, just have to apply some grip tape.
Trigger (at least 5lbs pull) is a little stiff at first, which will probably smooth out with use. Mine will be going to the SA Custom Shop to have their armorers do some CMP required modifications and a trigger job. That maintains the Lifetime Warranty with SA and still end up spending half of what a Les Baer hardball would cost.
Very satisfied, will probably end up with the 9mm version too.
Kudos to buds for having the best price too!
