Would it be a good or bad idea to CCW a Springfield Armory Range Officer:headscratch:

I wouldn't hesitate to carry an RO or Loaded. I prefer the latter, but the former is more similar than different. If you can deal with the sights, the rest is good to go.

Depends on your carry rig and if those adjustable sights will poke you in the side. Otherwise, why not?

All depends on the holster, I've carried 1911s with LPAs a bunch of times with no issues.

I don't because of the sights. I prefer to have a tritium front sight and a lower profile rear.

I'm wondering about the sights snagging on my clothes :supergrin:

I would change out the rear and you should be good.

Yeah could get pokie indeed. :rofl: Also sights could snag on clothes and that could cause a possible concealment issue as well. Could be done but you just need to put some extra thought into how to do it.

This, I wouldn't want to have a CCW with adjustables.

Other than the adjustable sights its no different than carrying any other 5" 1911.

If it is a reliable 1911, slap on the sights Hokie posted up, and carry with no worries.

Why would it be a bad idea? You should follow the same criteria that goes into choosing any carry pistol.

Never a bit of trouble carrying adjustables in this Brommeland for me.

I just depends on how you're built and how you carry. My rear sights always get banged on door jams, car doors, etc..., but I'm a skinny guy so the rear sight sticks out from my hip when I carry at 3:30. Bigger guys will have the gun better protected than me.

Here's a pic for reference. I don't think an adjustable rear would be any good for me.

The 1911 is a military sidearm, CCWing any full-sized 1911 is a compromise of some sort as the pistol was never designed for it.
