    It's use but I got it for a grand. :)

    With vz operator grips I think.

    Gotta pay the rest off next week then wait three days. It's got the OD frame.

    Oh I die notice after looking online, it only has a single sided safety. And the grips aren't cut for an ambi safety.

    Anyone know what kind it's supposed to have? I guess the previous owner swapped it out. But I've seen some ambi safetys that have a bar on them without the need for a cut grip. I may see if they'll change it out....

    Well see.

    Congrats on your pistol, i have one, i've changed a few parts on mine.
    you need to fit the ambi safety, new grips or cut a notch in the grip
    or get one with out the bar.

    You got a good one. I like a single safety but it should be easy to change back.

    which operator model? i just got a px9105mlp, the mc operator. shot it side by side with a nighthawk grp and for me, the performance was the same. i did have the gunsmith do a little work to the mc operator trigger as it was stiff; he said he worked the leaf spring a little and cleaned up some of the areas where the armory kote caused friction.
