i dont get why this model is so popular. it doesnt have a magwell like the TRP does.

is it the od frame that people like? or the wrap around grips? i cant stand those grips myself.

One of my local stores had one of these a few days ago. I am very thankful I didnt have a second form of ID and my 30 days is not up. It was hard to hand it back.

When I first saw the "OD's" I was like . . . hmmmm not sure I want something so different. But after handling one in the store I was sold. If you haven't seen one in person, you are missing out. They look Bad Arse in person.

I have 2 XD9s and now the MC all in OD and love the look. Just different enough to be cool to me.

Also the 500+ dollar difference. The MC operator is also missing the front serrations.

Mine has front serrations. The "OD" is either a "love it" or "hate it" kind of thing. Me I've got 3 OD's so . . . .

LOL. Well, how about the fact that it's a pretty nice railed 1911 for not a lot of money; at least not by 1911 standards. A TRP rail is another $400.00-$500.00 more. I like the TRP as well, but some people can't afford one and the MC Operator and Colt Rail Gun are a couple of pretty nice railed 1911s at prices more people can afford.

I think you mean no front strap checkring. They all have the front cocking serrations.

The MC operator was my first 1911, and I've been very happy with it. The only thing I disliked was the grip and lack of a checkerd front strap. Those issues were resolved after a quick trip to the custom shop. ;)

Congrats man. Sweet gun. I love Springers. Got my first 1911 which happened to be a Half Rail TRP... now I'm hooked! I love Springer's customer service too. Make sure to get is a range report asap.

Last deal I got quoted was $1390 and the brick and motar store it could be up to 3 months wait (East Bay). South Bay all the gun stores basically told me they're wait list was unknown.

Try Guns Fishing & other stuff @ Vacaville, they have on display last Friday. It won't hurt to give them a call

how much was that "trip'? was it more than $400, because you need recoat the frame as well. it was the reason I sold mine and ordered trp full rail.

Unfortunately that's an old ad. They're now listed at $1299 at the shop. They might have one left at the Santee store but they did say they can't seem to keep them on the shelf.


I pick mine up on Monday. :D

Yes, yes it was. It was alittle over 600. Checkerd front strap, blended S&A mag well and A1 defense pkg then recoat the frame. The custom shop went even further and fitted an over sized bushing, cleaned up the slight slide over hang that it had and recoated the slide. She felt tighter overall and has ran flawless since I got her home. I am very happy with their service.

I've ran at least 800rds through her since I got her back and not one failure. This gun will be handed down to my son some day... After I'm dead :p

I know for what I paid in total I could have picked up a TRP, but I just couldnt bring myself to sell the MC. From my experience I decided my next 1911 would have everything I wanted from the get go. I'm now four months in to my seven month wait on my Ed Brown classic custom. It's a long painfull wait

Not sure what specific model you are wanting (MC, TRP, LW)

SA uses batch production for its 1911 models, you may not see a certain model for a long time...then, all of the sudden you see a bunch of that model.

They are around if you are not in a hurry just keep yours eyes open.
