I really like this one. Can't wait to shoot it. Feels really tight and the trigger is great. :cool: Here's a couple of cell phone pics.

I think they only made them for a year or two, they are pretty rare.

Nice find.

Awesome gun. I LOVE Champions, and I LOVE TRPs. There may not be a finer handgun.

Thanks guys. This one goes with my early TRP I picked up a couple of weeks ago.
The fullsize has the original wooden checkered grips that match the Champion's, but also came with a set of VZ Tiger Stripe Alien's.

I'm not sure what makes me more jealous. That you have two TRP's, or that one of them is a champion. Great looking pair.

I may need to look into one of those. I had forgotten about it until now. What is the weight? Is the frame all steel?

This is an SA archive from '98. That's when mine was built.
