Just picked it up from MPARMS and had to share a few shots. Brand new zero shots fired. Can't wait to take it to the range this weekend.

Was this a pistol he had in stock or was it bought through another avenue.

The OD Green frame and general badassness of this pistol is unparalleled.

Bought it from a fellow Calgunner. Actually found it on Facebook of all places. Facebook has a "Springfield MC Operator" Page. Who would of thought.

Anyway got it from a stand up Marine named Aaron. He posted it here and I jumped on it. Paid a fair price probably lower that some other GOUGERS are trying to get on Gunbrokers and here.

Very nice guy who honored his price even when others offered more after I said "I'll take it". That kind of man is rare these days.

So I'm a very happy OD Camper and can't wait to take it to the range.

Im looking for one of these currently. The 1911 rush has been insane, you can hardly find an SA anywhere.

The for sale section went crazy when Someone sold 1 for $950. What is the going price for this model?

I've seen them from $950 to $1300 on calguns, up to $1500 on gunbroker.

Very cool gun.

Personally, every time I see one of these I think that I really want one, until I realize I'd be MUCH happier with an M&P45.

Sweet. My buddy bought one six + months ago and still zero malfunctions.

You can't go wrong with the M&P 45 or any M&P for that matter.

I saw the MC Operator in person many many months ago, but was just getting into guns so went with the XD9s as my first 2 handguns. Both the service and tactical in OD Green. Something about OD just drew me to them as they were just different enough to be cool. (at least to me)

So now I have 3 OD Springfields all in OD and loving them all.

Yesterday I saw this online yesterday . . . VERY Nice. I may have to save some coin

DUDE!!! I'm jealous. You'll have to post some picks when you get it out of jail. Where in the Bay Area are you? Maybe a 1911 Range outing is in order.

Congrats on the score . . .

I'm near Richmond. What about you? I would love to shoot your SA! I'll be picking up my Scorpion on May 8th. I'm curious to see how my Scorpion shoots compared to my Kimber.

I'm in Mountain View so we're not exactly close. I typcially shoot at Reed's Weeknights and Metcalf weekends. If you see a noob with a very nice MC Operator, stop by and say "Hi".

Thanks . . .

The only thing I DON'T like about Springfield Armory is that they don't offer a standard gun with the front strap checkering that isn't one of their high end guns; which is a shame.
