I purchased a Springfield Armory Loaded Black Stainless just 3 weeks ago and now I've gone and done it again.

A close buddy of mine with the 82nd Airborne picked up the Springfield Armory Loaded "MC" Operator 1911 .45 ACP and he told me that the shop we generally do business with had two of them, yes two of them. This particular pistol is hard to find for some reason. I don't know if SA only does short runs of them, but generally they are hard to come by. They where Springfields intro to the Marine Corps MEU (SOC) pistol when they requested a manufacturer for production of their pistol.

I drove out and let the credit card slip again through the swipe machine.

Pictures to come but here is an article with some pics.
