Calling all Operators, Calling all Operators

How about an Operator picture thread. Let's see those Operators.

Outstanding Idea!

I like the theme of this thread! My operator will be out of the 10 day wait shortly. I'll have to post up some shots. The operator is by far my fav Springfield. I was very lucky to find an older loaded model in mint condition recently.

Well I don't have any pictures of mine yet, but what do you all use for a holster for these beautiful guns? Sorry it's off topic, but I figured since all the Operator owners/lovers are in one place... I'd like to shoot mine in the club matches, kind of an informal IDPA so I'd like something fast. Also does anyone know of one that'll fit it with and without a light? Thanks all, kinda a newb here trying to get started.

I actually have a DeSantis black leather belt slide pancake holster with thumbstrap and it will fit the Kimber Warrior up to the full length Operator 1911s with no light attached... Stan

Sorry, but I have a question about the sights for you TRP Operator owners. The sights look somewhat "sharp", have any of you guys had problems with them?? I'm purchasing a TRP operator next week and just want to see if anyone had problems.

They are sharp, just have to be careful.

Can you have them rounded down or smoothed out?

The 1st thing I learned with my TRP Operator was to get your hands out of the way of the rear sight. I racked the slide once using the rear serrations and wasn't fast enough and ended up with 3 deep cuts to the palm and 2 fingers.

I know better now, don't gotta show me twice

Some holsters are made for a pistol with the light attached, some aren't, and some that aren't have a mounting point on the holster for the light.

Thanks.
I have to give credit where it's due, because I wasn't the one who spec'ed it/ordered it. I just got lucky.
I won that gun in a Louder Than Words raffle last year. It came with the work done, plus the extras in the pic.
It's my $10 Operator I guess (cost of a ticket).
I had seen the ball cuts before on the Yost-Bonitz website, and thought they really "made" the gun. I never thought I'd have one though!

Congrats! I'll give 100.00 for your Operator so you can make a few bucks on it!!!

Hey Dan,
I bought my VZ grips for my Op only after I saw them on your TRP. I like the black trigger but I think you should switch back to the Operator grips. I have a buddy who needs the TRP trigger could I buy your old one? I know the new grips you have go with the rest of your gear(6004 and AR). It still looks good though.

Viva la Operators!!!!
