Well I like my Springfield XD it is the 4in. 45. I have lately been looking at a 1911. I really think I like the Loaded Full Size MC Operator and I really want to get one. Right now my XD is my go to gun for everything I have others but I like this one the best. I have never owned a 1911 but I think I would really like one.

The time has come for me to stock up on magazines for my XD seeing that I only have 3 and from what I am seeing they are not that cheap. Not that If I had a 1911 I would be stocking up for the ban because they wouldnt be affected but the Wilson Combat Mags are cheaper than the cheapest XD ones I have found.

Also Im coming to the point were I want feel completed in the weapons area (If you ever can) even though getting rid of my XD would mean not having an XD but I have a Glock so Im covered in that type of gun and I am the type of person that once I get a new gun I dont really utilize my other ones. So I know If I get a 1911 I might as well sell the XD because if I dont it will just be sitting in the safe.

So is it worth it. What does the Loaded Full Size MC Operator go for I have seen prices online but dont know what to trust.If any of you have any good or bad things to say about this gun please tell me I dont want to get rid of my XD for something that I am not going to be satisfied with.I could wait another 6 months until I get some more funds should I do that I dont know If I can wait.

I know many people dont agree with buying $1000 dollar guns and then buying cheap ammo, but how does the MC Operator handle the Wolf. This wouldnt be what I shot in it all the time but occasionally.

My personal opinion...save up for the Operator and keep the xd. I have an Operator and xd9 and love both.

keep the xd and buy the operator when you have the funds if you get rid of the xd you will regret it later down the road.

I should have thout this through before I started this thread. I have thought about it now and I agree I should keep the XD and just wait. The waitings hard but I know I will miss the XD eventually. So I dont know when I will get the operator but I will get it. I will probably end up going ahead and getting the operator and taking the hit even though it is not the smart thing to do. When I get it I will let yall know.

Get the Operator. I just got one, and it is an incredible pistol. You won't regret it. And I've owned 7 different 1911's over the years, and this is the best.

I have sold certain guns to fund others and never looked back as I knew why I would not feel bad when selling them (even if they were 100% reliable) and knew what I was getting in return was something I really wanted. I recently traded in a XD SC 9mm to put towards a Kimber Ultra Carry II. No problems with the XD but I've noticed that if I have to many HGs it makes it harder to put which one to a role. If I buy a gun and it sits in the safe then its more of a collector piece and I honestly don't collect guns, I shoot them at the range or put them to a role....yea I'm one of those gun guys. I do still have my XD Tactical 9mm with a TLR-1 though which I would never sell for anything as its the best all around bump in the night gun. I would keep the XD and save up for the Operator. But its up to you weather the XD will be missed.
