    I picked up my new Springfield Loaded MC Operator .45 (of course) today at lunch.
    I really like it a lot, the trigger is pure butter (better than my Sons C Bob) the fit & finish are excellent. There is zero slide play on the frame.
    I'm really looking forward to shooting this weapon.
    Not the best pics, but here she is...

    Congrats on a great gun. Let us know how it shoots. What kind of grips are you going to put on that.

    The stock pachmayr feels very good to me.

    Nice purchase. You are going to really like the MC Operator.

    I picked one up for myself about a year ago.

    I have heard they're better than a standard Loaded.
