    Just getting into the 1911 scene, so I bought a SA Mil-Spec a couple months ago. Love the gun, but I'm getting hammer bite, and I bought it so i could figure out what 1911 I wanted in the long run. Figured I'd upgrade in a year or so after I figure what I wanted. Looks like I'm ultimately really wanting to buy the TRP in stainless. I found one I can get NIB, shipped/transfered for $1300. Wondering if I should pull the trigger and just buy the TRP (seeing as they're really hard to find), or shoot the Mil=Spec and "earn the right" to buy/shoot the TRP down the line.....thought???

    Sounds like a decent price these days.

    If you like the TRP, why not? :cool:

    Sounds like a good price for a new one. If it wasn't new, I would say it's an alright price considering the total is really the total. Around here, I see them occasionally for $1450-1550 ($100 more for the black (Armory Coat?) one). Why this is, I'll never know - probably due to processing involved in application of the finish. Usually stainless is more, but in this case it's flip-flopped. As to the "earn the right" business..............you earn the right when you have the money in your hand. If you like it, get it. I've heard they're exceptional production guns but haven't gotten around to getting one myself, partially b/c I'm highly tempted to just go all out and order a Springfield Professional.

    OK...after you guys pretty much unanimously saying "do it", as well as the guys on 1911Forum, I decided to make this happen. Ordered it for $1252 shipped + $13 insurance. After my transfer fee and background check it will run be $1290 OTD. I've been drooling over this gun for a few months and am glad I waited until the time was right. Out of curiosity what is the difference between the Trophy Match and TRP? Looking at the SA website, they have the same trigger, mag well, match barrel & bushing,and checkered front strap,etc . What kills me is I saw Trophy Match for the same price I paid for the TRP ($1254) and actually contemplated buying it....glad I waited :cool::cool::cool:

    Congrats!!!

    the TM has adjustable sights, and the top of the slide is serrated.

    Quack,
    Can you describe the effect/advantages of the flat trigger? I'm considering same.
    Thanks.

    $1300 sounds like a decent price.

    feels good in my hands.

    theory behind it is a consistant pull no matter where your finger falls on the trigger.

    the flat trigger is as long as the shortest part of a long curved trigger.

    another thing i found is that it gave me a little extra room in the trigger guard to get a gloved finger in there, since there was no curve to it.
