    Is the magwell a clamp on or is it a speed chute?

    Suggested mods
    Replace the mag release with the extended (tactical) from Wilson
    Replace the slide stop with "Bullet Proof" from wilson
    File the release so it's flush with the frame
    I personally would change those sights. Are they tritium?

    I'm not sure what type of magwell it is, but it's held on by a hex screw on the bottom.

    Yeah, the sights are tritium night sights.

    I'll probably eventually end up getting those mods you suggested, but for right now i'd rather spend the money on extra ammo.

    You gotta find what you like too. I was pretty serious about a TRP, they are pretty nice...need some custom work that I couldn't wait for and was able to get with the Wilson.

    You need to be a total nazi about who works on it though. I wouldn't let the local gunsmith at Gander Mountain or some shit touch it. You gun, and my gun will run very very well, provided they are maintained, and checked over by someone that knows what the fuck they are doing.

    Yeah, i've only shot about 100 rounds through it, I don't really have much planned for it other than things I may want along the way and just basic things that most people get. When I bought it I had no plans of carrying it, but the more I shoot it and the more I read about 1911's, the more I want to carry it.

    What type of basic work or modifications do people who carry 1911's usually get? Just basic reliability type work, do I even need it?

    You can totally fag it out like the IPSC crew :mamoru:

    Defensive, sights, make sure it's dehorned (yours should be) extractor tuning, maybe some light trigger work. Call up a good 1911 smith and tell him exactly what you want, and he will tell you what you need.

    All my other guns are black and tacticool, so I went with stainless because I wanted a big flashy 1911 :o.

    I've seen some of those IPSC 1911's, they're god awful, they look like toys or something :mamoru:.

    Honestly the trigger on my TRP right now is orgasmic, I don't think i'd want to change it, but then again i've never shot a 1911 with custom trigger work so I probably don't know what i'm missing, if I do carry it though i'd probably want to keep it factory stock.

    I'm going to recieve my TRP Operator next month and already know what I'm going to do.

    For one thing I'm going to replace all the MIM parts with tool steel parts (either Ed Brown or Wilson Combat). The parts I'm most likely going to replace are the:safety, slide stop, beavertail, ejector,hammer, sear, disconector and the extractor.

    I'm also going to have the trigger pull reduced down to about 3.5 lbs. And last, I'm going to have a gunsmith do a fitting of the gun and do any sort of polishing and tuning necessary.

    The smith that I'm going to send my gun to is going to be Tripp Research. Their prices are reasonable and turnaround time is good. If I had the time and money I'd like to send my other 1911 (Milspec) to Yost-Bonitz and have them do a 1* retrofit.
