    Brand new, never even shot her...

    I put some grip tape on the front strap and changed out grips to a pair of thins. In doing so, I mangled the original standard size bushings but I replaced them with a ss set.

    I literally just bought this with the intention of using the Professional upper that I also just bought. I didn't even THINK about the fact that this lightweight would have a ramped barrel.

    Anyway, I just bought it and can't use it for my intended purpose...I'd just keep it, but I'm buried in 45's.

    I bought it local and looks like I got hosed...:cry:
    No way around it, imma gonna lose my a$$ on this, but that's the way it goes sometimes...

    I need $1k shipped, my FFL to yours.
    Thanks,

    Nostalgia... My first 1911 was a well-used LW Operator, and it was a great shooter. GLWS

    Awesome piece here. I owned one several years ago and put over 15k rounds through it and it ran like a sewing machine!

    Seller is top notch as well. Buy with confidence.

    These are very nice pistols I always regretted letting go of mine there isn't a ton of them out there either. One of very few Govt lightweights even on the market let alone railed. If I hadn't just spent a ton of money I'd be very tempted on this. GLWS this is a really fair price.

    I LOVE my LW Loaded Operator, like above said, fantastic shooter! It's my carry gun, when I carry.
