This is a discussion on TRP rework....lots of pics! within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; ...
Thumb safety was poorly contoured.
The plunger tube was not tight against the frame.
Ejector was not pinned.
Internally I found that the lube had congealed to a sticky gunk.
Feed ramp was shallow.
No vertical impact surface relief cut.
Breechface allowed empty cases to be pushed upwards far enough to miss the ejector.
I enlarged the ejector channel and fabricated a much larger ejector to guarantee ejection.
Sear face was rough and only contacting one hammer hook.
Lower corner of extractor hook was over radiused.
The S&A magwell protruded quite a bit from the rear of the frame.
I machined off the original checkering making it flush,
and then recheckered it.
Some very nice gun porn you have there, sir!

I am speechless! That is just gorgeous! Thanks for the photos.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
Very beautiful. Nice work!

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Laws are restrictive but sometimes necessary to maintain a civil society. Rights are nonrestrictive but are always necessary to maintain a free society.
Fantastic! That puppy sure did need a lot of work. Amazing checkering jig that you have there.

Beautiful work. Looks like a total rebuild. The TRP is a $1,500 pistol. How did it leave Springfield as such a total out of spec lemon?
Too pretty to shoot. 2 Thumbs up!
Wow is all I can say.
Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
As usual, great work.

I enjoy watching an artist at his profession. How did SA let that one out the door? How common are issues like these out in the wild?
