Nice Springfield MC Operator. I like the Full Rail Bull Barrel, but that one is sweet. Are you carrying it in a leather holster?

I feel your pain. Dillion Precision sells one for $90.00 that will work with a rail gun and is a snap-on holster. It is made by Mitch Rosen and it is pretty good. It is what I carry for my Kimber Warrior/TLE-RL II/Springfield Armory Operator w Full Rail.

Nice pistol, Marine. I own the "first cousin" -- the Lightweight Operator. Only things I changed out were the full length guide rod (which had a bad habit of coming loose -- the new G.I. length guide rod and spring have worked flawlessly) and the grips (wanted some Gunners grips).

My $.02 -- I could tell the difference in the fit and finish of the Operator over the Loaded model, and my Loaded (a Champion) had a two piece barrel, which I didn't care for. Never thought I would plunk down $1,000 for a pistol, but it was one of my better decisions -- ever.

Don't be afraid of putting that new pistol in a good Kydex holster. You'll get holster wear in leather or Kydex, and a G-Code Kydex paddle will not disappoint. Won't set you back and arm and a leg, either.

Thanks for the info, I wanna use it for some action pistol or 3 gun matches. Had to get my CO to authorize the purchase, I originally got her permision for a RIA mil spec but she said I could get this piece when I found one. I was thinking maybe blackhawk serpa holster?

Stay safe

Congratulations. I have the same model. I really enjoy shooting it and I've made it my home-defense piece. It wears a Surefire X200 light and goes to the range frequently. I've never had a problem with mine, even though I bought it used.
