The Operator 1911 — New .45 ACP From Springfield Armory

The 1911 is one of the most iconic gun designs in history. Full stop. It has always been known for its easy customization. This is apparent by how many custom parts, builds, and versions are available. In addition, it’s known for its consistent, smooth break and general reliability. However, every forum, Facebook group, or subreddit focused on guns has had the .45 ACP vs. 9mm argument, usually with the 1911 at the center. Everyone seems to believe that either the 1911 is a gift to humanity or a relic of the past. Maybe this will help push that argument a little more in 1911‘s favor. Introducing the new Springfield Armory Operator 1911 .45 ACP. Here’s what Springfield had to say about their sleek new 1911 Operator release.
