Suppressed 1911!

I finally received my Storm Lake threaded barrel for my Full Rail Operator, and after some minor fitting, we went out and mounted my friend’s YHM Cobra to it.
I couldn’t be happier with the Storm Lake barrel, it is a very nice barrel, fit and finish were great. Now the wait for my Form 4 to clear for my AAC Ti-Rant 45…


Interesting firearms: Springfield Armory Full Railed Operator

Today, we’re taking a closer look at a bit of an unusual pistol, the Full Rail Operator, by Springfield Armory.

Love them or hate them, they are impressive pistols. The giant rail, and un-cut slide gives it a tough and heavy look. While the gun is a bit heavier than a normal one, it is not as nose heavy as a Bull Barreled gun is. What is the rail for? Mount lights. Maybe in combination with a laser, but that’s about it. Adding a foregrip would look weird, and would not only be useless, but would also be a violation of the 1934 NFA, as a pistol can not have a vertical front grip.
