For those that demand a no-nonsense approach to their defensive grade pistol, the new Operator® 1911 in 9mm stands ready to deliver. Crafted on the solid foundation of a forged frame, slide and barrel, the Operator 1911 builds on the century-plus of service behind the gun and adds the benefit of the ever-popular 9mm round. Tactical Rack rear/tritium front sights, G10 grips, ambi safety, two 9-round magazines with bumper pads, forward cocking serrations, and more combine to make the Operator 1911 from Springfield Armory a must-have tool for self-defense.
Not double stack.
Not optic ready.
Not very ‘operator’ by the modern standards, to be frank. But I am certain it’ll shoot well with the forged frame and slide. I’m also a big fan of the grip panels. Classic Springfield naming conventions continue.
