Can anyone tell me about this pistol? I am considering it. Sounds like the real deal. How would it compare to a, say, Les Baer SRP? Or a Wilson CQB?
Thanks!

It's comparable to the CQB in many ways. What the CB has that the Springfield won't is:

1) The Wilson is dehorned. The Springfield has really sharp edges. They can and will eat up holsters and you probably don't want them on a carry gun.

2) The CQB is a Wilson Combat gun. The Wilson name has a lot of, well deserved, cache.

3) The CQB comes with a lot of cool stuff--Wilson hat, gun rag, video, grease, etc.

Of the two, I would probably buy the Wilson. Why? Because I already have a Springfield. The TRP plus the cost of dehorning (and refinishing if nessessary) will cost you as much as the CQB. The CQB will have something like a 6 month wait time.

Just one note, a buddy of mine got his CQB about two months ago, and has noticed that there is a fair amount of holster wear. Not a big deal, but annoying on a $1,700 gun. He did, however, just order another CQB from Wilson (with a shorter barrel), so it isn't a big issue to him.

BR, thanks for the feedback, are you sure you are talking about the Pro model? It is different and superior to the TRP...

Pro is another league that the TRP. It's built from the ground up and is really a custom pistol, not semi-custom. It's dehorned and is the pistol that passed the FBI tests, don't think Wilson's did!

I own a Bureau model, which preceeded the Professional, but is in essence the same gun. I LOVE it and shoots great and has been totally reliable and 1" accurate. I owned a Baer, not a Wilson though, and this blows away.

The SRP was the pistol before the TPR/PRO...The folks that "Have" them swear by them...Some who don't, don't have much to say...There are quite a few forum members that opted for the PRO in the recent months...The ones I've heard from LOVE THEM!!!

I have a Professional Model. As I have said before, I don't think they get better. Maybe different, but not better. Match accuracy and combat reliability.

As a bonus, you get Springfield's customer service and Lifetime Warranty.

Sorry, but I have no experience with the Wilson or Baer.

However, you won't be disappointed with the Professional Model.

Got the Professional model now I'm getting a Professional model built with the shorter Champion slide from the Springfield custom shop. But this was my beginning to 1911's so I have nothing to compare it to.
