    This is a great thread and is much appreciated.

    My SA MC Operator also has a "glued" ejector. I have been shooting it since 2010, with nary the round count of the above. It's reassuring to see that the above Operator is still less a pin, even after all that usage.

    I was worried about "glue" when I first made the purchase, but was reassured by a very savy Operator, pistol smith, and all around good guy, that his issued MC OP never had a problem. That was enough for me.

    Really good to see the entire package holding up so well.

    Ned, I had to do the same with one of my TRPs.

    Is that 33 etched as Magazine number 33?

    I love how a hard use pistol looks...

    I prefer it to the "Glamour Shot" pictures I see alot of 1911s in.

    Maybe I'll throw a picture up of my first 1911,a (cough) Tarus PT1911 that has around 12k down the pipe. Still fist sized accurate at 25 yards, but ugly as sin.

    It's soon to be filled with Wilson Combat parts, just because I've never played with 1911s before

    Going by the last time I rummaged around in Rob's shooting bag, that "33" is the mag number.

    Thanks for posting. Gun looks pretty good for the round count.

    One of the best looking MC OPs out there. Even has the 3/4 rail which is extra sexy.

    I just noticed this and would like to see the pictures, but the link is now broken. Great article!

    Crap! My former hosting service went kaput. I will do my best to get them back up.
