Hi, I've been lurking here for about 5 minutes, and figured I would pester you all with my questions.

I'm looking for a new 1911, and have narrowed my choices down to a Springfield Trophy Match Stainless, Springfield TRP Stainless, or a Kimber Eclipse II.

I was browsing around Springfield's site, but could not find any really good differences between the TRP and the Trophy Match, besides the sights.

Can anyone shine a light on this for me? Is there something I missed? Yes, I did a search on this board, and didn't really find any info on the differences.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can set me straight.

No 1911 yet, but saving money, asking questions, researching, and generally annoying everyone I can until perhaps someone buys one for me so I shut up.

Smithmeister, I have both, the TRP is 1 month old and the T.match is 5 months old. My TRP is in A-Kote which looks very nice. The TRP shoots as well as the TM accuracywise yet it will not stop. I have had a rash of FTF's in the Trophy. I think the TRP being a tactical gun is set up to err on the side of reliability rather than pure accuracy as in a game gun. Ambi safty and Night Novaks are nice as well. Whatever you do, go with Springfield Armory. Kimber makes fragile part-timer toys with non-exsistant customer svc. Just my .02 Dave

Thanks MulsanneArnage. I have decided the TRP is the way to go. I will be using it for both range duty, and a nightstand gun.

Anyone have any good online resources to purchase one from? My local shops are blood-sucking vampyres. The cheapest one I can find locally is $1200. I have seen them going on gunbroker for around $1050-$1100. I'm looking for the stainless version.

I got my TRP at a show for $1000 and was instantly elevated from none gun owner to celebrety status. I love the piece, the action is smooth and tight... (lets not go there
)
