    After taking in everything you guys posted for me I went to a little shop that pretty much deals exclusively 1911's and AR's since they build their own 1911's on site or modify something you have or buy though them. Anyhow I got there looking around to see what they had and after speaking with the owner about what I wanted to do with it hewas said for the money go for a Dan Wesson PM7 or Springfield Operator for something standard out of the box and customize it for less money than what a Les Baer or Wilson Combat and in the end basically have something close to the same gun.

    After looking around he had this customized TRP Operator on the shelf and after playing with it I pretty much knew I had to have it. So some paperwork and card swiping later, I came home with the customized Springfield Operator TRP.

    Here is the customized features and items on the gun that I remember him saying and trying to write it down as I was on the way out the door.

    C+S ultralite hammer
    Colt Disconnector
    Wilson or EGW Sear
    Wolf 19# Main Spring
    Recrowned the muzzle into the bushing
    Relinked
    Dehorned the gun
    One sided Ed Brown Safety
    Novak Night Sights
    STI Trigger
    Flattened and checkered the slide stop
    Checkered the back of the slide
    New grips (I do not know what kind but I like them a lot)
    Reliability package (At least polished the ramp and worked on the extractor)
    Slickshot finish over the the SS pistol

    And of course the pictures.

    why?

    Nice gun btw, now shoot the snot out of it. Only thing I would suggest is ditch the ILS MSH and go with a S&A. I also like 17lb MS really helps smooth the cycle for "my" loads as well as provide positive reliable ignition.

    I like the GI setup, more reliable IMO. Ive had a 2 piece FLGR come apart on me.


    Also don't need special tools to take a GI setup apart.

    yeah, I don't like the 2 piece either for that reason and didn't realize that's what he has, I'd toss that. I like my 1 piece on all my set ups and don't need any tools to take it apart. I just use my thumb nail to push the cap in. (12.5lb spring w/ shok buff)

    I went to the new hoffmans store, they are still unloading stuff into the store, and the range is not running yet, once its all said and done though it should be really really nice. Might have to make a trip to either place sometime this week.
