Thread: RO Elite??

  1. #1

    RO Elite??

    Just received an email from SA. I know, I know. Swore I wouldn't deal with them again. But this new RO Elite with 4 new models is intriguing.

    YES please! I want the Compact (maybe the Champion) in 9mm. I have no idea what's different about the Gen 2 trigger, but so far I like what I see... even with the full length guide rod, I can't wait to see one of these in person.

    Making good people helpless will not make bad people harmless.

    It is very pretty, no arguing that one!

    Is it just a finish, trigger and thin grips that separates this from the other products?

    They suck, I have a long memory, and tend to hold grudges (sometime that's bad, for SA, they just suck). They sold us out, they'll NEVER sell me another firearm.

    I see no reason to tag it with the R.O. label. IT's NOT a R.O.
    The more you sweat in training the less you bleed in battle.

    I'm with you, why would anybody support a company that stabs us in the back.

    Looks like they are trying to make look similar to the TRP line but without any of the actual performance upgrades IMHO. Just a new set of grips and sights basically

    Looks like just a trim package. New cloths on a dead to me pig.

    I was one of their strongest supporters pushing the 1911's to anyone that would listen.

    Not anymore. I have picked up a used one since the idiocy was found out but no new ones.
