    I do like no FCS. If they make it in stainless I might have to find one myself.

    If they would only do something with those sights and front strap, it would be interesting. Looks like a Loaded with a couple changes.

    the build is similar to the TM/TRP and not the loaded line.

    I do like it.. I also like the idea that they are selling an enhanced loaded at loaded prices.. It is tempting..

    Now that is the most interesting production 1911 I've seen introduced in a while. Looks to have NM frame, and SA claims the same build as the TRP/TM without the bellsnwhistles. Make a heck of a base gun too for tinkerers. I just like not having to put up with FCS and TACTICAL.

    They make all the sense in the world to some.....I just don't think they should be standard on damn near every production people made. I find them very functional for press checks (chamber check), ect, but I really don't care for the looks of them. They are certainly functional, especially with some of these slick finishes on some of these pistols, especially on a hot, humid southeastern day.

    I've been looking at a TRP for a while now, but the price was holding me back a bit. I really want a full size for carry. Obviously, I'd swap out the sights.

    If they made this in stainless, I would give it serious consideration.

    That is a great looking pistola. Add a 10-8 rear/tritium front and it would be juuuuuust right. :thumbsup:

    25LPI would have been nice too.

    Hey Brian, go ahead and pick one up. We need a RO vs Trojan comparison. :supergrin:

    Toss the guide rod, throw on some night sights and you have a good self defense 1911.

    Pretty much a Loaded with adjustable sights, even though the marketing blurb wants you to think "TRP". But the loadeds are great guns.

    Actually, wrong on both accounts. Loadeds are mediocre, and these are built to far superior levels if they (SA) are telling the truth about TRP/TM build.

    I like it. Don't care for the sights but other than that its a very clean looking gun.
    Vertical slide serrations would be nice too.

    Correct on both counts.
