    Springfield TRP

    I searched for TRP posts and didn't get any results..

    The TRP seems pretty well respected from everything I've seen and sparks my interest. I would expect to pay about $1500 If I were to pick one up. For a few hundred less I could get another Colt and for a few hundred more, couldn't I get into an entry level custom ? Is the TRP worth the price tag?

    Well....I had one a number of years back when the first introduced them. To be honest, I had some function issues with them that required gunsmithing. For the money you will be investing what would you think about a Ruger SR1911 (if you can find one!) and building one to your liking?

    I've got a $3200 Wilson and a $2800 Brown and my $1400 TRP shoots just as well. The last Colt I handled at the gun store just didn't have the fit or finish of the three guns I mentioned. I think the TRP is well worth the price.

    I agree . I have a TRP Operator , and it is very nice.

    I like Springfield in general and own a Micro Compact GI.45, I really like that gun a lot.

    But I'm just about convinced that it doesn't matter the name on the gun, unless it's Hi Point or something truly awful: if you buy a reputable name gun and treat it well and take care of it, you'll have a very good gun that shoots fine. You can spend a lot and find some noticeable differences -- Dan Wessons' come to mind -- but you can also spend a lot less and have some very fine guns.

    As long as they're from a name brand that is a long history of fine shooting instruments you should be fine with just about anything, even Glock.
