I purchased a new TRP on Saturday. I broke it
down to clean it and it appeared the barrel
link was reamed out a little to accept the
slide stop. The slide was very tight and while lowering it it sticks with about an
inch before going into battery.
At the range the slide seemed to work itself
in abit but the gun is shooting about five
inches low freehand and from a rest.
This is my second Springfield, the first is
a Trophy Match, the gun is very accurate but
the breachface is very rough.
I'm not bashing Springfield's but compared
to my Kimber's they seem to lack the final
touches.
Any similar problems or ideas, Thanks.

Have you contacted Springfield to see what they recommend? Springfield usually has pretty good customer service. Heard quite a few talk about how good their service was. I have had mixed service with Springfield, but recently it's been real good.

All the new Baers, TM I have ever picked up if slide is not slammed shut "which should not be anyways without a "Snapcap" or "chambered round" but shut slowly generally will stop short of battery. Normal due to tolerances. I hand people the Baer "THUNDER RANCH" for fun everyday after picking up other 1911a1's and ask them to pull the slide back. Honestly 75% of them say what the heck is wrong with it or ask if they are doing something wrong. My TM if released by hand will stop short of lockup NP. So at a X POA she hitting 5" low?
Obviously with it having a Novak elevation adj. not a option so if not happy here is .. WHAT YOU DO...
Call SA talk to Lisa or whoever, explain POA is not to your satisfaction, Tell them you would like a "Red Label Favor" through UPS. She will then give you their acct# with UPS. Also a RMA# "for recording incoming returns". Also request a test target at 25yrds showing POA. Leave in case take out all accessories but leave in 1 mag. Box it take to UPS tell them you have a "RED LABEL FAVOR" ps: take SA acct # with you you will need it when UPS hands you the "Next Day Air" form. Be sure to enclose letter what you want and problem just like you did when you called. Write RMA# on outside of box. Ship and wait to be pleased. Turnaround little slow right now looking around 5-6 weeks. Good Luck!
Not to worry you will be taken care of!!!!!!

I called Springfield on Monday but no techs
were available. They took my name and number
and said someone would get back to me within
24 hours. As of Friday no one had returned
my call so I called them. The slide seems to
be working itself in but it's still shooting
about four inches low. Nothing was mentioned
about their account for shipping the gun back
but they gave me a number for the return.
To say the least I am a little disappointed
with Springfield Armory.
I'll call them Monday morning to see if they
will pick up the shipping charges before I
go to U.P.S.

Thanks for the replies.

DO EXACTLY AS I STATED "TELL THEM YOU WANT A RED LABEL FAVOR".....period. THEN ONCE YOU GET THAT GET THEIR UPS ACCOUNT NUMBER...period
THEN YOUR SET!!!!!
Advice deal with them all the time and others. You must be precise and TO THE POINT IN TELLING THEM WHAT "YOU" WANT and EXPECT.

Good luck... just do as stated.........
