The Springfield Armory® Lightweight Operator pistol was the first pistol offered by a major 1911 manufacturer having a light-mounting rail forged directly into a lightweight aluminum frame. While others have followed their lead, Springfield still offers the most comprehensive line of 1911 light-rail guns available. The Standard Picatinny mounting platform on this Lightweight Operator readily accepts the most popular whitelight and laser illumination devices used by military spec-ops and law enforcement tactical teams. These fully-capable extreme-duty firearms are truly the best of the best.

(4 out of 5) Got mine!
by from Watkins Glen, NY on

This is a nice weapon for the $. Lite enough to handle all day but meaty enough to quickly return to Nat point aim. Eats any thing you feed it. Missing that nice 30 lpi checkering on the front strap, easily fixed with 3M textured tape. It's a tack hammer @ 50 feet, I would be comfortable starting at 50 YARDS if there was a good reason. I have to admit I've been leaving the Kimber at home! They could have buffed some of the burrs and sharp spots but again, very nice for $.
