Cringed as opened this hoping it didn't have the godforsaken (IMO) rear adjustable sites. Nice!! EMP? Well, do you want flashy or natural?

Eh.

If they made it an actual 4.25", yeah.

4"...not so much. Can't put a GI type 2-piece guide rod in it.
Yeah, that is the one shortfall I can see of this pistol. I was thinking that myself, actually. But, it's a step in the right direction!

I'm OK with the 4" barrel as I've got Champions, Kimbers, etc that all run fine with a 4" but I've never been enamored with the RO in general. If it's a range gun then I would expect a magwell, checkering, and a FO front sight, and maybe just a tad lighter. At 40oz without a magazine, the 5" is almost too heavy for IDPA.

Now we have a 4" Compact in the "Range Officer" family that gives you none of the other things I'd prefer in a range gun and now a shorter sight radius. I know it's not a comp gun but the CCO has generally been considered a carry option so I would think the new Compact would fall under the Loaded models rather than an RO. I also find it very odd that SA would discontinue the Champion and then release a Compact.

Just me I guess but I'm not understanding the strategy.
