Very nice work. I wish I had the equipment to do that.
Great work as usual Chuck. Built to run and run hard.
Nicely done Dubs!
Wow indeed! :hand10:
Now I'm gonna have to tear my TRP down to see if it suffers from the same maladies!
Nice work, and super sharp photos - as always!
Beautiful finished product!
As others have mentioned, Springfield ought be ashamed for letting that TRP out the door.
Nicely done :)
Always enjoy seeing true craftsmanship on display. Thanks for sharing!
Now I know some things to look for that could be a problem in my guns and parts
Pictures are great!
I have a TRP and while I think its a decent gun (though overpriced for what you actually get), I've never understood why so many people seem to think the TRP is such great gun.
This thread shows that Springfields, other than the Pro perhaps, really aren't of such great quality. The small parts are not of top quality material and the fit and finish is merely adequate. They are adequate guns, but do fall far short of being well-crafted from top-materials.
WOW amazing :35:
I sure my Kimber's dont require that much work but probably would in the eye of a skilled craftsman :wink:
Are those 10-8 grips from Hilton Yam...very sharp? Pistolwrench you are an artist in metal Sir. Absolutely beautiful 1911 !
Remind me not to get one of those TRPs. Does Springfield make that shoddy of a product or are you just a perfectionist? How much would you charge someone like myself for a job like that? Or conversely how much would the equipment cost to do it? Not that I'd ever feel capable of doing those mods. (repairs?)
