I just shot the 9mm RO last week and it's on my short list of next guns. I have 4 1911's and I want to make this my 5th. The promo day I shot it at didn't have the RO Compact unfortunately but my local range is getting one for their rental board.Shot the full size RO tday. My first time shooting a 1911. I'm sold. Picking it up in the Morn. This Compact will make a Great Xmas Addition to the SA 1911 family. Def not getting rid of my XDM 3.8 9mm and Xds 9 in the process.
