    I am fixing to end up with this exact pistol picture threw a trade and it will be forsale.

    It's rare, yes. But not worth that much. 750-825 is what I would value it at.

    To add, for $1200, one can find a used TRP full rail.

    I bought one about 8 years ago NIB for $599, good 1911. It's still 'in the family' out on the family farm in ID doing nightstand duty.

    $700-850 max for the Operator full rail.....a TRP is the more desireable model.

    The TRP is, the milspec and loaded full rails as far as I know, are not made.

    I see what you did there.

    I've only seen 3 milspecs for sale in the last year or so, and never one in person.

    To the right person, wanting to customize a full rail without FCS, probably 1k or so.

    700-900 otherwise.

    My suggestion is put it on Gunbroker and find out.

    They are a little rarer than the standard TRP or 1/2 rail TRP, but they're out there. Here's one that a friend had recently gotten by trading his Wilson + getting cash.

    They are hard to find for 1200.

    I've got a loaded full rail in the safe. I had two.
