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.
