Springfield Armory MC Operator with factory RMR

So I happened to see the new Springfield MC Operator with factory RMR on Gunbroker a few months ago. Today I finally received mine. I have been a fan of RMR’s for a while and I came to age shooting 1911‘s due to the AWB of the 1990’s. I wanted to try out a 1911 with an RMR, but I was nervous about having one of my guns cut in case I found out that I didn’t like it.

i have had my eye on a Staccato Duo, but my other issue is, that I am a Fire Captain and work 24 hour shifts, which then means that I have to leave my gun locked up unattended in a cheap safe in my truck while on duty. So I really don’t
Ike the thought of an almost $3000 gun, by the time you ad the cost of an RMR sitting in my truck.

so when I saw they Springfield now offers a factory 1911 with a RMR, I thought what the heck. It isn’t exactly what I wanted. It’s only available in a 45, and the RMR is a 1 moa dot, but I reload 45’s and I can always get a different holosun or RMR if I need to down the line.

I tried it out today, and I think I might actually like it! It’s not as accurate as my STI tactical, but some of it could just be that I’m a little rusty with a 45. It’s a pretty good deal for the price point, and it’s still factory, so if I decide that it’s not for me, it shouldn’t be too hard to sell of later. I also received my Holster Co holster for it, and it fits like a glove. I think I’m going to like this combination.


I didn’t know this was a thing until now... and now I want one. MIM parts aside, I really like my Loaded Operator model, and have been wishing I could get an RMR atop it.
