    'bout as good as they come, same as the loaded or TRP depending on which grade you go with. Only big difference is the rail I believe. Very good sidearm for sure, I'm a huge fan of S.A.

    Both the loaded and TRP I have are as good as you could ask for.

    I shoot the TRP Operator and to be honest most of my other guns have gone to the wayside since I picked it up. The accuracy, ergonomics, fit and finish is out of this world. The dream to shoot gun is the most fitting description I can offer for the Operators. My first day at the range produced a golf ball size ragged hole after the very first 2 mags I fed it at 25', something I personally have never experienced with any firearm on day one. These 1911's are highly valuable, and very difficult to top.

    I love my TRP Operator! It is far more accurate than I'll ever be. Also have a Springfielf EMP 9mm which is also a great little gun. It is one of my main carry guns.Springfield has the best customer relation dept. ever.

    It's a well-built 1911. Made in the USA too.
