    I recently received my MC operator after a five month wait and have been building it up slowly since then, I have made several additions to an MC operator that I received in complete armory kote Black instead of the two tone/w od green. I loved the 10-8 Operator as well as the MEU/SOC 1911 so I wanted to build one to get the best of both worlds, but with being not lucky enough to get a limited run of the actual 10-8 operator, like one of the lucky guys , and being about to deploy(US Army) next month, I wont be around for another run. I finally got my 1911 finished and one built to my liking well enough, it does not have the meticulous attention the Real 10-8 operator received from Hilton Yam, but it does share most of the parts and some of the looks. Well enough talking here are pics and specs,range report to follow:

    Springfield MC Operator: Complete Black Armory Kote
    10-8 Flat trigger
    10-8 Rear sight
    Ed Brown oversize Magazine release
    Smith and Alexander Mag well
    Strider Gunners grips: Coyote Brown(USMC tanker gave me the idea,when I saw his 1911, great grips)
    Streamlight TLR 1 light

    congrats. that is a sweet looking mc operator. i love black and tan grips like that. the mag funnel is a great addition as well. i had an mc operator for a while with about 4000rds through it, and it was 100% reliable, accurate and fun to shoot.
