As with the rest of the Ronin line, which has only been added to SA's catalog in the past year, the newest variant is a two-toned pistol consisting of a stainless steel forged frame married to a forged carbon steel slide that has been salt blued. While the gun evokes memories of custom M1911 rigs of the 1980s, SA says it blends old school looks with modern manufacturing to produce something different from the rest of the pack.
“The Ronin series of pistols — offered in 9mm and .45 ACP, and now 10mm — have proven to be extremely popular with 1911 enthusiasts due to their impressive quality, forged strength and durability, and exceptional features,” explains Steve Kramer, Springer's VP of Marketing. “With the addition of the 10mm chambering, the Ronin family now has even more to offer.”
MSRP on the Springfield Armory Ronin in 10mm Auto is $849.
