want a railed bull barrell 1911

Ive narrowed it down to STI Duty One and a TRP.

I found a used TRP, can't find a used Duty one, so its a wash on price.

My Trojan is a dream (to me). Are the TRP's triggers able to be like my Trojan, or will I have to buy C&s parts for that?

There doesn't seem to be a huge advantage to the TRP, but lots of people love them, and i can't find squat on the Duty One as far as reviews and testimonials.

The Trojan, Spartan, and Legacy or Sentry have a few reviews, but almost nothing on the Duty One. Ive scoured the 1911 forums everywhere and only found a few limited reviews.

Please share your knowledge bac, drc767, quack, hokieshooter,glock2740, and others.

STI's have been on backorder for a while, so good luck trying to find one right now.

The TRP trigger is adjustable for over-travel like the Trojan.
to have a similar trigger pull as the Trojan, you might need to have a trigger job done.

If you are looking for a full-rail TRP Operator, i know of a shop that has 2 pre-owned guns. they also might have a Duty one there too.

so why a bull barrel over a bushing barrel?

I think you lumped me in with the resident experts by mistake. I don't even own a 1911 at the moment.

I personally am not a fan of the TRP (girlie hands that don't like SA 20LPI), so I'd look elsewhere for an affordable railed gun (MC Operator, Colt Rail Gun, Kimber TLE RL2 come to mind) or get a Valor and add a Dawson rail.

If you like the TRP, that's pretty hard to beat.

I don't have a lot of solid reasons for the bull barrel. Just want to try it I guess. Ive got a TRP half rail coming in ($1100). I hope I didn't get had. I still might toss it if I can find some advise on the Duty One.

Bac, can the trigger be accurately tuned with the MIM firing group parts, versus the tool steel, or is that just internet BS?

I read a lot of your stuff quack and hokishooter. Resident comedians and experts.

that's a good price. just don't like the TRP Op because the bull barrel and the adjustable rear sight.

the trigger can get tuned. On my Trophy Match that Hokie shot, i worked the MIM parts down to a 2# trigger. It lasted for while i've had it, but I can't tell you the longevity after a lot of rounds have gon through it. i think i've had about 1000 in the TM while i had it, which was about 6 months. If i had to guess the previous owner was a gun gamer because it was already at a 2.5# trigger, but it wasn't nicely done, the sear spring was just tweaked. i actually worked on the sear and hammer hooks, as well as using a COlt sear spring.

I still don't get that. Adjustable sights seems like a goofy add-on on that gun.

So to sum it up so far. My worries about the TRP are mostly unfounded.
I love aggressive front straps (I have clammy hands). My main concern was getting the same crisp, light trigger that I enjoy on the Trojan. (thanks quack). I might still drop the C&S parts in if I make the TRP a long term keeper.

But there is still nothing on the Duty One. I just wish I could find more info. It as if they advertise it, but rarely sell any.

Thanks again for your help.

C&S parts work great. i still have a SuperMatch set in my Loaded. i did that before i bought the tools to do trigger jobs.

There is someone on here that has a Duty One and for the life of me I can't remember who it is. He really liked it and recommended it to me a while back when I was asking about a railed 5".


***Found it...maybe shoot him a PM.

Ive not graduated that far yet. Did you find that the parts were drop in, or that you still needed other parts or minor fitting?

What seems to be the concerns for a bull barrel?

Thanks.

It still needs fitting, at least with the thumb safety at minimum.

I tested a TRP and a duty one the thread is here soewhere. I would pass on the duty one.
The TRP had it all over the duty one in fit finish and reliability. If you can get by the adjustable sights...


The duty one is also very finicky about feeding when dirty that captioned recoil spring feels very week cpmpared to a standard. we experience numerous 5-6 round feed problemswith various magazines and ammo that ran perfect in teh TRP.

Why are the adjustable sights a bad thing on the TRP?

Personal preference for me. I wouldn't want adjustable sights on any gun.

They are just ...funky and they are night sights that are recessed in the slide very well done but not needed.
I prefer a 10-8 style rear or Heinie/Novack over any adustables on a working gun.
