    I'm looking at a Kimber Warrior, not the ugly desert Warrior, or the Springfield TRP with a rail. I also have a Glock 35 on order that I could use.

    The only things that put me off on the Warrior are the lack of a checkered front strap and a stupid lanyard loop instead of a magwell, which is easily changed.

    The TRP has everything, but its $200 more.

    I currently shoot a glock 22 with a TLR-1 and haven't had any issues, I just shoot a little better with a 1911.

    I know a few guys have TRP's, is anyone carrying a Warrior? Any feedback on either weapon?

    I have the TRP and love it. If you have girly hands don't get it because the checkering is very aggressive.

    Kimber is very slippery but a great Gun.. new TRP's are great .. I carry a 35 why,, because it shoots eveytime I pull the trigger and I can shoot it faster than a 1911 and it does not matter if I scratch the pee out of it or get it all bloddy it's a glock..
    The TRP needs a few mods to be duty ready, Tool steel fire control components a silver soldered or brazed plungertube and a GI pulg and guide.

    Knute has a TRP. It's the nicest gun I've ever shot. Just say yes. For $200 more, it's not even close.

    I was also looking at the Kimber Warrior. I was also thinking about looking into the Wilson spec-ops and a glock 21. I can't wait till I get my tax refund.

    I was in your exact shoes a little over a year ago. Even switched from the same gun. I liked the Warrior, but was told by a shop guy that the Warrior had some internal parts that were breaking down and would more than likely need replaced, especially for a duty gun. So I got what I wanted, which was the TRP Operator with a rail. I absolutely love it and don't regret the change. Additionally I've never had any problems with the gun and I've had it for over a year and have put a ton of rounds through it.

    I definitely like the Operator, but one with a rail is hard to find for less than $1450. I've seen them as high as $1800.

    TRP's are very nice, I'd definitely carry one over a Warrior.

    Very true. If a TRP is too much money, the next choice would be the MC Operator. You should be able to find this gun for around $1k. If not, look for a Springfield dealer who can order it for you at officer price. My TRP Operator with a rail was $1278 through a Springfield rep. I just had to wait a while before it was sent out to me though.

    I might do that. Waiting isn't going to be a problem since I can't carry in until I go through a 1911 class, which they are going to do in may.

    I ended up finding a NIB TRP Operator. Hopefully it will get shipped to my FFL tomorrow and I can pick it up next week. Hopefully my Glock 35 will have shown up by then too.
