RO 9MM or LOADED 9MM?

Okay wanting to add a 9MM to the 1911 collection have been thinking the RO but see that the Loaded is very similar in price. Just wondering other than the sights are they built similar? Liking the looks of the Loaded but just wondered if there is any reason not to pick it over the RO? Thanks.

The advertising would have you think the RO was of the same quality as the TRP and TM at a much lower price. I doubt that. I think the RO and Loaded differ only in "features" and you can pick whichever you like the looks of.

Yo bjenkins why don't you just shoot that nice 34 you have for sale on the local forum?
Not trying to derail here but why are you always selling your nice guns?

I prefer the target sights on the RO versus the novaks on the loaded.

I see you have Senior under your name? Now that's appropriate! LOL. 34 just seems a little heavy in the front and the 17 just seems to feel right.

familiar platform, less costly to shoot for range and competition, and a 1911 9mm is a very pleasant gun to shoot.

That's why I load my own 45 acp ammo with high quality bullets. I find my 45 loads way accurate and very easy to shoot all day.

The last 9mm that really tripped my trigger was a baby eagle. That this is super accurate with low recoil and high accuracy. Great in your hand , I would have to try some 9mm 1911's to see what worked better. That being said I think the RO is a better pistol in that price range.

Looks to me like the Loaded is stainless while the RO is Parkerized. I think Parkerized is another term for "it will rust". Accordingly, I would go with the Stainless.

I couldn't agree more. I have a STI 9mm Commander and it is a joy to shoot. A little heavy, but very fun.

Springfield's stainless will rust too. Had it happen to my Champion 4"
