Congrats OP! Should be a great gun. Glad to know you finally found it.

Why Cleopatra?

I had one for a day and traded it for a different gun... Long story... Still curious how it actually shoots, lol.

The MC Operator was definitely the first handgun I wanted. Unfortunately, when I was shopping, the wait for one was over 1 year long. Settled for a Stainless Loaded 1911.

Pick mine up on Tuesday, already ordered a new MSH and parts kit to remove the stupid ILS lock. Went with a Ed Brown MSH with magwell and a 20lb spring.

Default MC Operator

The only thing that annoyed me was mine was set up for a 6 O'Clock hold......which most springfields are. A quick call to their customer service and it was sent back to them. I had it back in 10 days with a taller front sight that shot dead center.
