Hi, looking to liquidate some guns and purchase a 1911 for a duty gun.

Requirements:

Govt Model 5".
Night Sights
Ambi Safety
Front Strap Checkering
Any other good suggestions :dunno:
Magwell, maybe

Note: I am a lefty :tongueout:

I will not have the money for a Wilson or a Les Baer after selling what I am going to sell. :crying:

I have been thinking about either the TRP or a Kimber Tactial Custom II, aluminum frame.

I do not see any thing else out there..............Suggestions :dunno:

Which one would you get?

What is a good price for each and specifically where ?

Thanks :wavey:

TRP.

new or pre-owned?

if you look around you could find a nice Bear. for a little more than a new TRP.

My TRP has been absolutely perfect for 2500 rounds...Not one failure of any kind and very accurate.

question for the OP...are MIM parts a concern for you?

I know that Kimber has MIM, but does Springfield?

Does Springfield have a lock?

I found a new Kimber Tactial Custom II for $1,040 shipped.

I do not know what the TRP goes for?

There is a gun show this weekend in Birmingham, Al.

I plan to go and see if I can trade for one of the two.

Would really like to be able to handle both at the same time and then decide.

Any other options :dunno:

What about a DW Valor. It doesn't have the ambi safety but you could add one and have a really nice 1911.

yes, the TRP has MIM.
IIRC, Hammer, sear, disconnector, slide stop, thumb safety, magazine release, firing pin stop, MSH, plunger tube, grip safety and i think extractor, ejector.

the TRP has a ILS lock in the MSH (easily changed)
the Kimber has the additional Swartz (series 80) firing pin block

TRP's are about $1400 (Les Baer concept II ~$1690)

STI Lawman is another option (close to what you want need night sights & ambi)

STI Law
Springer Loaded ( Not checkered)
Springer TRP
Kimber TLE

Springer Loaded is the cheapest at around the high 800's. They all have MIM. I wouldn't worry about the Springfield MIM. The Springfield loaded will have the Lawyer Lock main spring housing. That is a easy do it yourself 25 dollar fix, I'd spend $50 and get a Smith and Alexander magwell main spring housing.
