Solid Snake's weapon of choice, the M1911 Operator. ** UPDATE **
About this creation
Here's the gun with all of its additional components. The false LAM unit gives it a SOCOM look ;)
Above are the photos of the latest version. It features a cockable hammer and checkered grips. You can also notice the CQC knife.
A photo of the precedent version with the fluorescent sights. It also features the "Photoshoped" brown plates.
The complete prop.
This is my newest version of the legendary Solid Snake's favorite weapon, the M1911 Operator. it features a two tone body, reinforced slide from the last version, a brand new fluorescent sight system (:D), the lower frame part near the muzzle tip is slimer the hammer has been completely redesigned. Updates in the next version : Brown plates on handgrip (I still don't have brown plates, a friend is supposed to give me some), maybe a bigger magazine and a fluorescent front post. My favorite weapon from MGS4. I added a "Photoshoped" photo of the brown handgrip (I put red plates and modified the photo on Photoshop to turn them brown).
** UPDATE **
I added some more dark grey parts and reworked the entire grip to make it simpler. I also fitted it with a Suppressor. I still have to find those brown plates for the grip.
NOTE: I kept the fluorescent sights but didn't put them on the new photos to represent the gun at its best realism.
