Did the "old" Operators slide come in Armory Kote?  It seems a whole lot smoother and darker than the parkerized frame.  My Loaded is parkerized and doesnt even come close to the quality.  Heres a pic.......

I have an older full-length railed 'Loaded' Operator and the frame was definitely parkerized and the the slide I cannot tell because it had little sheen to it but looked like parkerizing also..D

All the Loaded Operators I've seen (including my own before I changed the color to baby vomit brown) had a two tone look. Since all the Operators were finished and assembled in the US the Parkerizing is much nicer than the Brazilian finished guns. I ordered a couple of PX9109Ls for some LE buddies of mine, one was finished here (NM prefix) and the other in Brazil. The US gun had a much better finish

The American finish is definitely better.  I have a 9109L also, and the Operators finish is way better.  Thanks for your guys help.

I had a Safariland 6280 (i think), but you had to have the m6 attached to use it.  I got rid of it because it was huge!  It felt like you had a brick on your side.  I have since switched to a thigh rig from High Speed Gear Inc..........it works without the light, but not with .

Here's my Versa Max II for my TRP Operator. It's sweet and comfortable. Gun is a tad bit heavy but it's  a minor inconvenience.

I use a Safariland thigh rig for work but Blade Tech makes a few different holsters that are really good
