Gun shop called this morning to tell me my Micro Compact Operator was in. Holy cow!!!! Was supposed to take 12-16 weeks and it's here in less then a month!!!
I'll post some pics tomorrow. Until then I have a question. I proceeded to disassemble to clean. Sheesh just trying to get the disassembly pin out was a bear. Once I got it out, I honestly thought I would have to take it to my gunsmith for reassembly. Couldn't get the pin back in.
Talk about tight. Please tell me this is going to loosen up a bit. I plan to take it apart tomorrow, do a good cleaning, and head to the range on Thursday. Figure I'll run out to Wally World and see if I can buy a box or two of WWB.
Will keep ya'll posted. In the meantime if anyone has any hints/tips to remove and replace the disassembly pin I'd appreciate it.
One other thing I might add. I have a Colt Defender and always liked the feel of the rubber grips with the finger grooves. I purchased and installed the" Pierce Grip Enhancement for Officer Mode / 1911 Compact and equivalents " . I think it improves the "feel" , especially it being a small handgun. www.pearcegrip.com. 1-800-390-9420. I bought the grip quite a while ago anticipating the purchase of the pistol and I think I purchased thru The Officers Store ?
The Defender was returned to Colt twice because of feeding issues, FTF. I'm hoping this Springfield will be reliable. I could never carry the Colt and feel secure. Accuracy on the Colt was terrific, I haven't fired the Springfield yet.........................maybe get to the range later this week. I have three other Springfield handguns and have "0" issues with them................ great factory support with lifetime warranty, no more Colts for me .
