Good news is I found a TRP that is avail for $1200 with about 10 rounds through it. Since it belongs to someone I know and work with I got to take it out and shoot it. It performs like I would expect it to. The only thing I have a hard time with is the need to use a tool to remove the guide rod. I cleaned it after shooting it and admit it is not as troublesome as I would expect. I have a SA Loaded that requires a wrench to remove the guide rod and have found it to be a PITA - works itself loose with shooting, etc. So the question is are there good choices on par with the TRP that don't require a tool to break-down? Maybe I should take a closer look at a Colt Rail Gun or the Sig Tac Ops? Am I over thinking the whole thing? Thanks in advance - Rk Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
