    TRP is awesome

    Another range day with my stainless TRP. A drill I use alot is 3 targets at 7, 10, and 15 yds. Three rounds in each (I use Wilson ETM 8rd mags), slide lock reload after the 15yd target, then 3 rds in each at 10 and 7. I use a Lucky Gunner.com reduced silhouette targets and really just concentrate not on speed but keeping all rds in the black. I use this as a defensive drill so I try to shoot only fast enough to cover the shots with my palm.
    My TRP has always been my favorite and in the almost 4,000 rds I have thru it, no malfs that haven't been mag or ammo related(one mag failed to lock open on last rd, two Speer fmj rds failed to fire even though primer had mark).
    All my other guns are now safe queens and rarely if ever get used with the exception of my back up "gun when I'm not carrying a gun" Ruger LCR or my Glock 36(kept in a grab and go fanny pack(I am also a volunteer firefighter, so my fanny pack goes with me to the station on calls).
    My TRP has been a joy to shoot and a real confidence builder. Carrying any other gun just isn't the same since it came along! It is The Right Pistol for me!

    Absolutely excellent! I like that you have 4000ish rounds through it.

    My experience is very much the same. In excess of 5,000 rounds and I don't remember a malf. The TRP guns are just amazing, custom gun shop reliability.

    Mine in 10mm failed to feed with all ammo and all magazines. It also shot patterns instead of groups at 7 yards. I sent it back to Springfield. They did some work on it, and that fixed the feeding problems. I sent it back again for the accuracy issues. They sent it back to me. No improvement. I traded it off (with full disclosure). I'm poorer but wiser.

    I have not heard good things about their 10mm. Dont know why they cant make decent 10mm, especially for the $$.

    My 10mm failed to feed. It was perfectly accurate but would have a stoppage every couple of rounds. In defense to SA, I sent it back in under warranty. It came back machined out like one of their customs. It came back mechanically PERFECT. SA has a great warranty and great customer service. I was a happy camper.

    I liked it, but traded it and my other TRP with some $$ for a Wilson Supergrade. It is accurate and has not malfunctioned yet.

    If I ever get another SA, I will just save up for one of their FBI custom shop versions.

    For the price it’s well worth it. A near custom quality build gun for a fraction of the price.

    Love mine!

    I picked one of these up about a month ago new (that's what I get for being bored and killing time on Gunbroker).......just passed 1K rounds this morning while running it in the pouring rain. I pulled it out of the box, put a 10-8 rear on it, swapped the FLGR for a GI set up, and lubed it with Wilson whatever. It has run without a single stoppage through a case of S&B ball with Wilson ETMs. I was hoping it would choke relentlessly so I wouldn't get sucked into the 1911 pit of despair.....Now I'm in the quandary of having a nice reliable 1911.....the horror! All kidding aside, I had a couple of these in past that ran equally well and I wish I had never sold them. These are great guns for the money and can frequently be found for less than a grand new on GB.

    My old TRP was excellent. Never should have sold it. It shot perfectly from the day I bought it till the day I sold it. I bought it to hold me over while my Springfield Pro went back to the shop....like that makes sense...LOL.
