Good fine. I'm sure you got your moneys worth, but give use a range report when you can. I like mine so much I can't see getting a Pro although there is the Operator version.:scratch:

Maybe for my next one EOD....right now I've got VZ Operators on my Mil-Spec which are fitting my tastes for now.

But I'll sure as hell by another set of grips as an excuse to get another 1911. :dope:

Been lookin for a full railed Mil-Spec.

Anyways...sorry to de rail this thread. Back on topic!

I will have to check out the bushing. Also FLGR. I have not had it to the range yet.

I really like the single cocking serrations. I am not a fan of serrations on the front of the slide.

Nice gun, but do you know the history of it? I ask because there are several things "odd" about it. The bushing does indeed look "thick" as mentioned. It only has a single sided thunb safety when TRPs have ambis, and I've never seen a TRP (or any "loaded" Springers for that matter) without front slide serrations. I'm also guessing it has newer night sights on it because of the white lettering visible on the rear sight. Oh, and not to nitpick, but I think those grips (I really like em) are $37 for EACH panel thru Springfield, not for a set. Enjoy and good luck.

It may of been sent back to Springfield's Custom Shop for the TRP conversion or likely customized by someone else. Do you know it's history army_eod?

I know it has had work done to it. It was traded along with another loaded and customized Springer for a Nighthawk. I got it from my friendly local gun dealer with whom I have been doing business for six years now.

Not worried about any problems with it. My dealer will make good on any issues, but he has already checked it out. The guy who traded it is an established customer as well.

Yes....they are new Trijicon night sights.


I will let you all know how it shoots soonest.

Trust me...Springfield quoted me the price on the SET of grips. I just put them on yesterday.

Oh my God! Just took this TRP to the range. I am now spoiled.
Undoubtedly the sweetest gun I ever fired. Even with Speer target ball it was dead on at 15 yds. Best trigger I ever felt.

No doubt there is serious quality here.

Then I cleaned it. It has some use. But it is probably just broken in. :rock:

I am waiting for Springfield to get back with me, but I am thinking this was manufactured in 98.

I cannot imagine a better 1911. I guess I will test my theory and rent a Nighthawk or Wilson next time at the range. Cannot see that there can be that much difference except for price. Mine for 850.00 or Wilson/Nighthawk for 2500.00 or more.

Unfortunately it puts my other 1911s to shame.
