Springfield Armory TRP

Description

The Springfield 1911 TRP is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in .45 ACP. The TRP is very similar to the Trophy Match, except the blued models have an Armory Kote finish, which is a Teflon finish, so it’s wipe-away clean. The stainless steel model has a satin finish.

Features include a match bull barrel, a lightweight aluminum trigger that sets off the action with a 4.5- to 5-pound pull, adjustable sights, a wide-mouth magazine well for quick mag change, its standard magazines have slam pads, which protect cushion it if they hit the ground during rapid mag change, and a skeletalized hammer. It is also available with a Picatinny rail for easy mounting of accessories.

Just like the original 1911A1, it is recoil operated, so the expanding gases that push the projectile out also forces the slide back and by doing so ejects the casing and chambers another round.

It has two safety mechanisms. A grip safety that rests within the beavertail curve below the hammer. The grip safety is automatically engaged when not in use, so it cannot fire unless the trigger is actually pulled. This means no accidental discharges if dropped. The second safety is a ambidextrous manual safety that turns on and off with a flip of a switch.

Springfield recommends the TRP for competitive shooting.
