New MC Operator

I picked up a new Springfield Armory MC Operator. I haven't fired it yet but look forward to it this weekend. I usually clean and relubricate new firearms but wonder if I should fire this without doing so to break it in. The slide to frame is tighter than I thought it would be. The finish is great, and I am impressed. Fingers crossed, it shoots as good s it looks. Wish me luck.

P.S.- Pics will be up tomorrow. I can't figure out how to attach them here from my iPad.

Welcome to the MC Operator club.

I highly recommend Slide Glide.

Unsure if it's a big deal, but would you recommend a cleaning prior to shooting it for the first time?

Here's a few pics:

You can, if you want. It won't hurt it.

I generally always clean my guns prior to the first outing.

When I got my Baer more or less everyone told me to just keep lubing it till I get about 500 rounds though it before I brake it down.

Going to see how that goes this weekend.

Love them Operators:

1911 Forums

I never clean or lube guns until after I see how they will run dry.

Congrats!!

Mine has been a joy to shoot. I have had mine since Feb 07. The "born on date" of mine is October 2006. If you call Springfield and give them the serial number, they will tell you when it was made.

Thanks everyone! Nice Operator pics above. Do you guys like the Pachmayr grip? I'm hoping to take it out tomorrow and put it through its paces.
