So, Mr. Chickadee was able to pick up his new pistol yesterday after work & try it out. Ran 150 flawless rounds through it. :D
Sorry to say he did not provide any pics of his targets, which is sad since he's a better shot than I am.

The best part of the story: He did a quick field strip/cleaning before shooting it. Found out it needs a 'paper clip like tool' to disassemble the recoil rod/spring (he figured this out after several fruitless attempts to disassemble it & then consulting the manual). :eek:

Lucky for him, one of my Kimber takedown tools happened to be in the range bag, since Springfield did not include said tool in the case! Kimber saves the day!! :D

You should buy him a box of paper clips and tell him it's a life time supply of Springfield tools, don't forget to gift wrap them.

I was tempted to get a TRP but I calmed down reminded myself I was there at the LGS to look for conceal carry guns and I purchased my first Kimber!

I might want to revisit the TRP next tax return tho...

Thanks for posting! Great looking 1911

My husband's been shopping for this one for a few months. Wanted a .45 with a rail as a home defense gun instead of adding a rail to the Sig C3. Never seems hard to find a good reason to buy a new gun! :D

That's a sweet looking gun. Should serve your purpose well!

Glad he is enjoying it. I just picked up a non-rail version TRP before x-mas. They are VERY well made guns, and for the price you cannot go wrong. Springfield will tell you though, they do not include a 'tool' since any old paperclip will work just fine. Throw a few in your cleaning kit and you are set for a long time.
