Well,

I can't afford another gun, but when I do, it'll have to be a 1911. Since I cured my BRD with a nice Daniel Defense build, I need a new disease.

I think I want a MC Operator, in case I shoot someone at work with my Pro.

I would require an ambi safety and the same magwell my Pro has.

They come with an ambi safety, right?

How hard would a magwell be to install? S&A is what is on my Pro, IIRC.

It would of course need my standard trigger job and 10-8 flat trigger. :supergrin:

I already have a set of gunner grips waiting for it!

Like so:

Aren't they like $2,000+ ?

I would love one of his new Springfield 10-8 guns. I think the MCO is about 1/2 the price though, no?

The second gun seriously is a back up to the Pro in case I off someone with it and they take it as evidence. I'll just need to sneak the light off. :whistling:

Yeah. I worry about the same thing with my Wilson. I actually need another railed heater to dedicate to my SWAT crap.

There is a TRP operator for 15 on gun broker right now. If I were dead nuts gonna buy another, I would make the jump to the TRP for a couple hunnert more. Of course since I don't price things out much I could be way off.

I actually wouldn't mind the aptly named Colt Rail Gun

The TRP Operator is cursed with an adjustable rear sight which I won't use on a duty pistol, so I think it would be out.

The Colt could double as an edged weapon if someone tries to get it out of my duty rig. :rofl:

You definitely don't get as much for your money with Colt's but they seem to make one of the best base guns for a build.

Not hard at all, just depends on if you want the bevel blended

Doing those changes, you are pretty much making a 10-8 replica, except for the MCO not having checkering and some other bits and pieces

here's what the magwells look like, so the MCO would be most similar to the Loaded w/ add-on

TGO-1, Trophy Match and a Loaded with an add on.

Actually, I think Colt's rail gun compares pretty well to the operator and other railed 1911's in the $1k range. I nearly bought one of the black cerekote models about a month ago, but ended up buying an XSE Commander instead. All the rail gun needs IMO, to be duty ready is night sights. While not beveled like SA's, Kimbers, etc, I personally don't find the new Colts to have the razor sharp edges they seem to have a rep for.

Yes, when I had an MC Operator - I added that magwell too. It attaches easily, and it worked well with the pachmeyer grips. And, I sent it off to CCR to have black ceracoat put over the blue steel finish to match the other black parts on the gun.
