    from another forum

    Accuracy: 2.5-inch groups or better at 25 yards*
    Novak Patented Low Mount Tritium Sights*
    Tritium Dovetail Front Sight*
    Combat Trigger Job (4.5-5lb crisp pull)*
    Stainless Steel Match Barrel and Bushing*
    Polished Feed Ramp*
    Throated Barrel*
    Springfield Armory Wide-Mouth Funneled Magazine Well*
    Machine Checkered Front Strap*

    From all that Ive researched, it's the closest you can get to a "Professional" model in a production gun at a production price.

    I had a loaded before, the slide/frame fit was pretty sloppy for a 1911, the TRP Im getting feels like a custom gun compared to the Loaded I owned.

    It wasn't shit, it just wasn't tight, was reliable even with the stock mags. Im sure I could have sent it back to springfield but I just sold it and waited till I could get the one I want.

    Sweet. What are you building it up for?

    The Springfield Titanium FP is the very first thing that gets tossed, good call on the Ed Brown FP.

    Replacing the stock FLGR with a standard GI setup and a 16# spring

    replacing the stock titanium firing pin with a steel firing pin + extra power spring

    replacing the ILS mainspring housing with a S&A Magwell housing and a standard 23# mainspring
