Springfield sight says its a Combat Operator.
Did it come with 2 Chip McCormick 10 rd mags.

2001 it has been through some Owners.
Does it have any visible roll marks. It looks like a TRP operator frame for sure.

Thats sounds sketchy for it to be a factory gun.

I have been wrong before and may be now but that might be a parts build up.
I can find no references to an SA "GI" Operator any where.
The Combat Operator yes. Looks very similar but just can not be sure.

Private sale...???
Have you ran it yet...???

I think I remember this one, they were factory guns but this one the slide looks a little off like it's coated or polished/blued. It should be a standard Springfield matte finish.

That finish is funky looking. If you zoom in it looks like it's almost painted on with a brush. It's not a polished/blued. It's some kind of a thick coating job and not very good at that.

I definitely would get it stripped and have it cerakoted if it were mine.
