    I'm about to purchase my second Springer 1911 first one being a RO compact 9mm. Originally I was going for the Long Beach operator considering the low production number. Now contemplating the Marine Corps operator considering they're virtually the same gun could anyone elaborate tell me more about the two different models?

    So I've noticed Long Beach has mag well but no front strap abrasions for control. MC has front strap but no mag well...MAG well = one extra round in the magazine of 45. I'm leaving towards long beach...doesn't just seem like a novelty seems practical and closer in design to the TRP. Can anyone please change my mind or give me the downside from the MC.
