Springfield Armory 1911 Operator 9mm

Springfield Armory continues to expand its lineup of 1911 pistols with the Operator 9mm. Springfield’s Operator series needs little introduction and dates back several years. This latest version is a steel-framed, railed 9mm option.

Springfield Armory @ TFB:

The Operator 9mm is a full-size pistol with a 5″ barrel and traditional frame. That barrel is a stainless steel match-grade model. An ambidextrous safety is also included in this model, as are front slide serrations and a tritium front sight.
G10 grips by VZ Grips and a black Cerakote finish come standard on the Operator 9mm. It has a retail price of $1,184, so the actual street price will probably be around $1,000. That price includes two 9-round magazines and a zippered pistol case. Some online retailers are already showing it in stock, as well as some GunBroker listings, so you won’t have to wait for it to hit the shelves.
From the manufacturer:
Featuring a host of duty-grade features serious shooters demand, the Operator 1911 in 9mm delivers a cutting-edge, tactical-grade pistol. Tactical Rack rear/tritium front sights, G10 grips, ambi safety, two nine-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. If you want a no-nonsense, defensive-grade pistol in 9mm that’s ready to serve, then look no further than the Operator.
