I should have never sold my Springfield MC Operator.......I had one I purchased Feb 2011, and ended up selling it a few months ago. I really regretted selling it. On Friday, I walked into my local shop, and they had literally JUST signed for a box of two of them, fresh from Springfield, beings they deal with Springfield Armory directly......so those of you looking for them......Springfield just released a batch of them last week. Be on the lookout. I decided to get one today. At $1040, the price is unbeatable. I've yet to encounter a softer shooting .45 ACP than the Springfield MC Operator......... Fresh from the box- All cleaned up and lubed with SLIP 2000 EWL. Nothing really needs to be done to this except maybe some Wilson Combat 47D mags. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
