    EDIT - Price LOWERED! (see below)

    Forsale - one Springfield Custom Shop FULL RAIL 9mm 1911 Operator! On all the forums I am on, I have never seen another one of these in 9mm - EVER. I special ordered i and waited a year for it!

    For those not in the know - the Springfield Custom Shop is at the same level as Brown, Wilson, Nighthawk, etc. This is not a standard production Springfield. Ordering a gun from the Springfield Custom Shop usually involved a 12-15 month wait right now.

    [​IMG]

    The MSRP for this gun was $3200 when I ordered it. Springfield Custom Shop prices have jumped up a bit now, and it would likely be at least $200 more.

    My asking price is $2500 for the gun and 7 mags... OR

    LOWERED to $2400 for the gun and the two factory mags (in case you just want to save some $ and get just the gun). No trades, sorry. Face to face sales only. Email me at: goldfishpanda@Hotmail.com if interested. Serious offers only.

    I am located in College Station, TX (which is not too far from Houston/Austin - I can arrange a meet depending on your location)

    This 1911 works 100% and has never jammed. I simply don't have the "1911 bug" anymore. During that 1 year wait, I sorta moved on to other firearms. Now, the wait is even longer for a Springfield Custom Shop Gun (I've been told that is is now 15 months wait)

    My gun also includes 2 factory Springfield nine round 9mm mags. I also have FIVE Tripp Research Cobra 10 round 9mm mags - These cost me nearly $46 each (with shipping and tax). Several of the Tripp mags have only been use on one or two range trips. So, several of the mags are essentially new.

    I will include the 5 extra Tripp Cobra mags if you buy the gun at $2500.

    Gun is matte hard chromed and has never been holstered! This gun is a custom order, but I have never seen another one on any internet forums or anywhere else.

    I have the original wood grips that came with the gun , along with the Hogue rubber grips shown in some of the photos below (see one of the last photos).

    The gun has 1400 rounds total through it. I ordered it from the Springfield Custom Shop in August 2008, and it arrived in July 2009. It has pretty much just sat in my gunsafe.

    I am also including the MTM case that the custom shop sent the gun in. And, I have the original Springfield Custom Shop Certificate that came with the gun (to prove it is a REAL Custom Shop Gun - only guns built from the ground up have the "Custom Shop" symbol on the gun)

    The specs are:

    If they don't go with the pistol, and you'll ship them, I'd like the first shot at the 5 Tripp mags.

    Thanks.

    I have one person ahead of you on the mags. I will sell them seperately if the buyer for the gun takes it at the lower price, without the mags.

    If it were stainless instead of HC, I'd have already arranged a meet!

    Nice pistol but I'd want a few mods that require machine work and re-finish would be expensive!

    Good luck!

    I would prefer stainless as well. I tend to beat them up and with stainless, Jay fixes them right up.. Ron

    Operator frames have never been made in stainless. And, the custom shop also told me that they could not get a stainless 9mm bull barrel as well.

    No one?

    I am willing to sell to someone out of state if you have someone here in TX to inspect the gun for you and make the payment. We can then go to an FFL and ship it to you.

    Very tight. Ya gotta work at it to get the slide moving initially, to pull it back. George at Gunslingers told me that itw as one of the tightest pistols he had ever seen. Works 100%, though.

    Would not have had to lower the price at all if you would have shipped it to me several weeks ago . Good luck with the sale . My money went to Chambers Customs

    A lot of times things are better off left unsaid or in this case unwritten-

    Bump for a special pistol...

    I actually had the thing sold. Buyer had a nasty car wreck the day before our planned meet. Ugg...
