    My first full size pistol was my TRP. I love the gun and its treated me very well. Then i got my CCW and i picked up a Custom Carry Compact off of gunbroker for a steal. I've been very happy with that... now i am waiting to go pick up my new (to me) Professional next weekend. I was going to sell my TRP since now i'll haver a "better" version of it with the PRO but i've since decided to keep it and build it lol

    I never thought i'd collect 1911s in this manner... they all have their "job" in my safe but i was only looking for a range/competition gun when i approached the 1911 platform a little over a year ago...

    Just a thread to say hello to a new forum :47_002:

    I'm not gonna lie, it's a bad thing to have classifieds, since there's usually always something that i want :lol:

    Its a good thing i found that PRO when i did or your EB KC would have been a tough one to say NO to.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! i cant wait to get home and have time to look through the forum more. Today is the first homegame for the Baltimore Ravens with our arch rivals the Pittsburg Steelers. I'll take this time to have the local range to myself and afterwards browse through this forum some more.

    its gonna be a good day!

    Very NICE SA 1911 collection that you have.... so far! I am sure the 1911 virus will not stop biting you... I am so broke but still want to take a shot at Quack's blue KC. So, I'd check back often to see how fast you could accumulate them.

    Quack, your selling your SACS TRP?! im getting ready to send mine to SACS since im gonna keep it and do a build up similar to the one done to yours... im going to contact you before sending it in to see what the "worthwhile" mods are...

    I've had a thing for the extreme carry bevel treatment the SACS does and thats the main thing going onto the gun... but if they can polish up its performance while its there... ;)

    Not selling the TRP...Sold the TRP in ~45minutes last night. Just talked to the buyer to finalize things.

    while it's there, i would go with a new barrel and tool steel parts and that's about it. the only other thing done to my TRP was the frame/slide was tightened.

    So how about the KC and $200 for the Professional. :grin:
