    I was going to add this to my original thread on my new gun but can't find it now. An unexpected opportunity to move into a much nicer place delayed my first trip to the range with my new .45. It's a pretty boring report anyway. I only went through two 50 round boxes of 230 grain FMJ but the gun functioned flawlessly. Felt recoil was neglible as you would expect from a full size stainless 1911. The trigger is great breaking at around an estimated 4 lbs with no creep at all. The gun is much more accurate than I am. The trigger and inherent accuracy let me shoot it better than any other gun I have with the possible exception of my S&W 686 in single action mode. Of course the 686 has much more recoil so follow up shots are faster with the .45. I can't wait to shoot it again.

    A truly fine 1911 is simply hard, if not impossible, to describe to those who have never experienced it.

    The trigger is like a fine Bourbon that accompanies a perfect rib-eye which is the accuracy.

    I think the TRP is a very under rated 'premium' priced 1911. People always say to go for Wilson, Brown, ect... While those are great guns as well, my TRP can hold its' own with them any day.

    I shot a friend's "Commander" sized Wilson Combat a few years ago, don't remember the model. It was beautiful and shot great but I feel in no way deprived with my TRP. I think the TRP is just as accurate and gives up nothing with the trigger. The Wilson Combat was prettier.

    By no means am I putting down Wilson guns--they're absolutely great. That said, I have a CQB and it often sits in the safe while the TRP comes with me to the range. FWIW--the TRP sits on the nightstand not the Wilson.

    Is it a TRP or a Loaded? I guess I missed the original post, but the title to this thread says Loaded TRP. Confruzed. :dunno:

    May be a TRP with boolits in it! :dunno:


    Seriously, the TRP is a solid option in the "production gun" category.

    It is one of the top "best buys" in the 1911 models!

    That's what the box says:

    .45 TRP SS Loaded W/NS

    It has a 2 piece full length guide rod which suggests it's a loaded but has TRP and Tactical on the slide.

    If you want to look the Model No. is PC9107LP.

    ps

    Was typing long past my bedtime. Of course it is a TRP. I'm guessing it says "Loaded" on the box because the TRP incorporates all the features of the "Loaded" models. Whatever, I know I like it and it shoots great.

    The TRP is a sweet pistol.

    My catalog lists all 3 TRP models with 2 piece guide rods.

    I'm sure but this is my first 1911 pistol. When I went to clean it prior to shooting I looked up disassembling the TRP in the manual. It has instructions for capturing the spring on a one piece guide rod. I figured it out pretty fast but it made for an interesting minute or two as I looked in vain for a hole in the guide rod.

    My Armory Coated TRP is so good I think the FBI would of done just as well adopting it and saved us taxpayers some money in the process. I mean really, really are FBI SWAT and HRT going to be taking head shots at 25 yards?

    Congrats MtBaldy. I have never tried the TRP but have read very good things about them.

    Uhm, yes. But the TRP is just as capable of that as the PRO model.

    Mine certainly shoots as well as my Professional Model. Will it after thousands of rounds through both? Likely not, but I still don't think the Feds are going to be doing head shots at 25 yards with a handgun so in the real worlds that kind of accuracy isn't needed. I think the Feds just think of cost as a nonissue since they have such a fat budget.
