SHOT Show 2018 – Springfield Armory 1911 TRP Operator pistols are now available in the powerful 10mm Auto caliber, in 5-inch or 6-inch long-slide barrel lenght
The Springfield Armory 1911 TRP (Tactical Response Pistol) line of pistols is based on the custom Professional Model that met the stringent specifications to win the FBI’s coveted HRT 1911 pistol contract. At the 2018 SHOT Show, Springfield Armory is introducing two brand new variants of the line – this time chambered in 10mm Auto and feeding from single-stack eight-round magazines.
Forged steel frames and slides are precision fitted to Match Grade stainless steel barrels with fully supported ramps. Frames and slides are coated in Black-T – a self-lubricating, highly corrosion resistant finish. Integrated three-slot accessory rails allow tre use of tactical accessories. 3-dot Tritium night sights are standard for both models, featuring a tactical-rack rear in the 5” version, and a fully adjustable rear in the 6” model.
The Springfield Armory 1911 TRP Operator pistols in 10mm Auto also feature an Octo-Grip front strap and mainspring housing, a set of G10 VZ grips, an ambidextrous safety lever and a Springfield Armory Gen 2 Speed Trigger tuned to a 4.5- to 5-pound pull (2 to 2,26 kilograms).
A heavier slide/barrel combination, in conjunction with an optimized recoil spring, tames the heavy recoil of the 10mm Auto. Each 10mm TRP Operator is shipped with two magazines.
The new 10mm TRP Operator models weigh in at 40 oz / 1,13 kg. (5-inch barrel) and 45 oz / 1,27 kg. (6-inch barrel), making these full-sized 1911 pistols soft-shooting and well-balanced options in a serious fighting handgun.
