    i have been waiting for my dealer to get me one. today i found a new one for 1290 plus tax and fees. it was the black without a rail. is this a pretty good price? i called my dealer and she said to go get it as they wouldnt be able to match this price so for now i have to assume its a good price. thanks

    That's a very good price these days for the Armory Kote TRP.

    holy fast reply batman:supergrin:
    thanks . while i have you what do you think about the railed verse non-railed? i was really wanting the railed version but after holding the non-railed today i think i like it better. also do you know the difference between the the two. i know the railed has an adjustiable rear sight. which i dont think i really like the way it looks. it also looks like it would shread my side if i were to carry it. i think the railed also comes with a bull barrel.

    he doesn't like rails.

    that said, i prefer the non-railed TRP. If the railed TRP had fixed sights and a bushing barrel, then i would get it.

    I don't buy any railed 1911s.

    Yes, the railed model has the bull barrel.

    There are two truisms in my life.

    Professionally: If it has propellers, it belongs in the water.

    Avocationally: Rails belong under locomotives, not 1911s.

    I wouldn't necesarily say that.

    TRPs are all duty guns, in my opinion.

    rails belong on glocks. there's not much else you can do to make them any uglier.

    picked it up today. but guess what the saftey is missing on the right side. i still took it as i know SA should hook me up and i got it out the door for the price i was willing to pay before taxes and fees.

    is it missing, or was there a single safety installed?

    also how can it be missing since the right side safety is held captive by the grip panel?

    the pic on SA shows one installed and there is a hole in the side of the frame on my gun. i guess this could be normal as this is my first 1911 and i dont know much about them.

    the prior owner could've swapped it out and installed a single-sided thumb safety. But the new TS should have plugged the hole up and there shouldn't be any visible "hole" present. If there's a cavity then the right side ambi safety is missing.

    this is a new gun. still in the box with the tags on it. it was brought into the shop a few weeks ago. they had a springfield day last month. when i asked about it being missing he said what would we do with it. i told him i wasnt saying they took it out but just that its missing. then he said that maybe this model didnt come with it but i thought it was odd to have a 1300 gun with a hole in the frame. i really dont care if it isnt suppose to be there as i would probably never use it but i dont like the hole.

    You bought a new gun with a missing part?

    At this point, I'd call Sprinfield.
