Springfield MC operator
 
1 Attachment(s)
So I ran across this Springfield Armory MC operator and snagged it up. I can't find much information on these and no real comparative prices or anything. Anyone know much about these ?

It is similar to a Loaded with a rail (in the "loaded" family with a few extras or upgrades)....

Options that are like the Loaded:
Ambi-safety
Low-profile Novak combat tritium 3-dot night sights
Front cocking serrations
Delta lightweight trigger
Trigger
High hand beavertail grip safety

Options that are different than the Loaded (or the "extras"):
Match barrel & bushing (like the RO and some NM framed Loaded models).
Pachmayer wraparound grips.
Accessory rail
Two-tone Amory Kote finish (frame is olive drab & slide is black)
GI-style recoil guide rod

It retails a good bit more than the standard Loaded's do though (because of the upgraded finish, accessory rail & other extras).
MSRP is $1387.00

I believe that those are the one that competed with the Colt Rail Gun, for the Marine Corps contact.

I did read somewhere that this gun was developed for a marine corps contract and the contract ended up going to the lowest bidder and Kimber was that bidder... Not sure if this is true or not.

I've been told they are hard to come by. Can't even find one on gunbroker.
