Sig Tacops or Springfield Operator MC? Both Used




I'm in the market for a 45.

I have a Springfield Loaded Target 9mm already.

What is better for $1,000, a Springfield Operator with 2 mags or a Sig Tacops with 3 mags, magwell, grips and night sights?

Both guns have rails.

I already paid for the Sig Tacops and with DROS it was $1,085 but can sell it for that very quickly.

The Operator was just offered to me for $1,000. No magwell, night sights, or grips. There also is no front checkering on the Operator. I may be able to get it for $900. But then the money to add a magwell, grips, and a few mags doesnt seem to make it worth it.

Thanks for the info.

If price and features were identical, I would go for the Springfield. Since you get more for your buck with the Sig, I would go that way.

Depending on where you are those are very high prices for NEW TacOps and MC Operators. I'd go with the Sig.

California.

The Sig Tacops is off roster for Cali so it was a PPT. I havent seen an Operator for under $1,000 ever.

I think I will stick with the Sig. They seem nearly identical guns. If the Operator had rear adjustables I might have done it or if it came with more mags.

A good condition MC Operator for $1000 is a good price. MSRP is over $1300 for a new one.

Night sights are standard for the MC Operator. If the sights have been changed you might want to look inside to see what else has been messed with.

I have an MC Operator and it's put together as well as anyone could ask for a production gun.

I have no experience with the Sig so I can't comment on it.

I've got a Sig Sauer TacOps and absolutely love it it is by far the most accurate 1911 I have ever owned or shot. Heres a link to the thread I started about mine.

I'm not sure about that exact model but just be aware that some SIG 1911's use a non-standard slide profile, making finding a holster difficult.
