Pilot Mountain Arms Operator Model 5”, .45cal, 1911 Pistol

The Pilot Mountain Arms Operator Model 1911 is a professional grade, fully accurized .45 caliber pistol with trigger and action (reliability) job. This pistol is modeled after the 1911 pistols that Sergeant Major Brian Searcy carried during his service with 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment - Delta and is built using the same quality components. The extended beaver tail grip safety and commander style hammer reduce hammer bite and wear on the shooter. The adjustable Bomar style night sights allow the shooter to adjust the point of impact with a variety of ammunition. The rear sight cut is set slightly forward into the interior of the slide to protect the rear blade. This pistol has the accuracy and reliability to be used as an offensive handgun. It’s built specifically for professionals whose life depends on quickly eliminating threats.  Gun will shoot 3” or less at 50 yards.   *Photos may include features and/or upgrades not included in the base price.

Incredibly accurate pistol. i have two other 1911's that I had built by well known pistolsmiths. The PMA Operator is without a doubt the best functioning and most accurate of the three. Well worth the $$$
I have a background in action pistol competition, the fit and workmanship on this pistol is very impressive. I was getting very tight groups at 25yards right of the box. would strongly recommend this pistol and company to anyone. Thank you for a quality product!
