Actually the TRP Operator costs almost 1.5 times as much as the Kimber. My TLE/RL was $799 and the same retailer sells the TRP Operator for $1189.Hansgraf said:If I was on a budget I'd go for the Springfield, otherwise the Kimber.
Okay SS you pushed me off the fence! I like the full length rail because it is different than other 1911s with rails. Not only is the rail longer, but the gun has more weight because of it. It's also unique in that it's a 5" barreled 1911 with a bull barrel rather than a regular bushing. Figured I'd better grab this one before they are changed, it's all your fault, SS! :biglaugh:SteelShooter said:I have heard that the Springfield Operator will soon have the short rail that most other light rail pistols have. I think it was in one of the gun mags.
