Springfield Armory 1911 TRP Black 4.5 ACP
The Springfield Armory 1911 TRP Black 4.5 ACP (tactical response pistol) series of 1911s Springfield Armory 1911 TRP Black 4.5 ACP from Springfield Armory® are serious tools for the most serious of applications.
With its 41-ounce weight, Springfield Armory’s 1911-A1 9mm was exceptionally easy to handle and comfortable to shoot. John shot the EMP 9mm at 7 yards since it’s essentially a defensive pistol. 45 ACP Handgun. 45 ACP pistol is the custom shop tactical handgun with features like three-dot tritium night sights and an extended lightweight trigger available right from the factory.
The Springfield Armory Ronin is reliable and more accurate than most pistols in the price range. A solid choice for accuracy, tested near the end of the test period, is the SIG Sauer Elite 230-grain FMJ. This is a fine all-around practice load and a hard hitter as well. As famous and ubiquitous as they have since become, the M1911’s service life began modestly.
TRP™ level quality starts with the forged national match frame and slide. These are precision fit and then mated with a matching grade stainless steel barrel and bushing. The 20LPI checkering on the front strap, checkered mainspring housing, and G10 grips will keep this gun in your hands when the sweat and adrenaline are flowing. The crisp 4.5 – 5lb trigger pull means you can more easily put shots on target when it matters most.
3-Dot tritium sights and an extended beveled magazine will remind you that the TRP™ was designed for use in high-stress places – where the environment works against target acquisition, and mag swaps have to be lightning fast. The Armory Kote™ or Stainless Steel finish will protect your TRP™ so it’s ready for the next mission.
Sometimes performance isn’t optional. When your requirements dictate that you use the best tools available, reach for the Tactical Response Pistol™.
