    So how much are Loaded Operators full rail going for these days?

    Being that the TRP's full rails are in the upper $2500, Im thinking the Loaded would be the next best choice if one was so inclined as to get a 1911 with full rail.

    Thoughts on this subject?

    Anybody have some personal p0rn on Loaded Operators with full rails? :razz:

    get one of those, get a smith to install(~$100) a fusion firing control group ($99) and look through it, then fire it look through again look for metal shavings and fix.

    Skateboard tape (sheet for a lifetime costs $8) umm smiley edit: 8 dollars. this goes on the front strap. Have to replace once in a while, easy to do, and the sheet is 1'X3' and will last forever. You can even buy rough medium and soft, and tailor it to your preferences, that costs an impressive $24.

    IMO you will have a better gun then the one your looking at.

    No factory line can produce a good 1911 trigger, that must be by a smith.

    A loose gun (RIA) with high tier quality control (your gunsmith) makes the most reliable pistol possible, allows for dirt and such as well, add in a trigger you can't get on a gun for under $1800 and your in heaven, this way you get to choose the weight/pay an extra $20 and have a second trigger weight to choose from (carry and competition weights)

    You don't need to do the work, but if your looking at spending over $1200 you have the money to spend 800 and have a perfect gun.

    I still can't believe the deal you got on that gun... That was a super rare once in a lifetime kind of deal. With everything going on now I doubt you could touch one for less then $700 but I could be completely wrong

    $589 is normal. its a 10 rd gun made overseas, no big deal. Might be a 2 month wait for sub 600 on gunbroker about 700 your right.

    Only real challenge you will have is finding a good holster for full rail. Other then that is personal pref. IMO I like 1/2 rail for light / laser combo. I don't have a use case for full rail.

    More weight on the front end; less muzzle rise.

    Add in pure aesthetics--they're f***kin' SEXXXY.

    And, as previously pointed out--it's what the OP is looking for.
