I put 500 rounds of American Eagle 230 grain FMJ's through my TRS before I completely field stripped it for cleaning. Turning the bushing wasn't bad at all, even with a nylon wrench, but popping that sucker out was extremely difficult. Putting it back in the slide wasn't a problem though. So all in all field stripping and reassembling the Baer was pretty easy except for popping the bushing out of the slide.
By the way the Baer 7 rounders works great but with a new Wilson 47 and a 47D I had 3 "failures" within those 500 rounds (last 200). They all stripped the next round and chambered it but the slide did not go fully into battery. It seemed like the extractor didn't catch the rim of the cartridge. I did not tap the back of slide for fear of damaging the extractor. So I stopped using the Wilsons and stuck with the Baer mags. Hopefully extra power ISMI springs in the Wilsons will solve that problem. Either that or I'm sticking with the Baers.
And yeah that gun was dripping Breakfree CLP throughout those rounds.
I'm still getting used to the thin grips but I think I'm starting to like them. Except for the part when three of the grip screws started loosening up on me. :grumble: The trigger is very nice and compares favorably to my SA Pro that had its trigger refined by the SA Custom folks. If the TRS proves to be as reliable as my SA Pro I'm sure I'll like the TRS as much as I do my Pro. Until then I still have to wring it out.
All in all not a stellar or perfect beginning but a gun I don't regret shelling out a premium for. For a Californian like me the choices in the $1500 price range were either the TRS, a SA TRP, or SIG GSR. The TRP and the GSR seemed like a step down from the Pro so I shelled out a few extra and got the TRS. I'm not the kind of person who can wait 6 months to a year for a custom job either. So all in all I'm glad I got the TRS.
