Default Springfield TRP worth the money?

Is the TRP really worth all that cash? I've been pondering one but not really willing to dump that much on it. Thinking about just goin with the colt rail gun or gold cup.

I have a TRP and think it is a fine firearm. But Colt's are really nice too.

You can't go wrong with either one!

Here is a pic of my TPR

And what's the deal with the two piece guide rod nobody likes? What's so bad about it?

I'd put that money toward something else. I personally don't care much for Springers.

Any reasons in particular?

Great pistol. Worth that price tag? Questionable. But at the end of the day if that is the 1911 you'd want to build, then I think it is.

I'm of two minds on this one.

I'd go with the Colt but never heard a bad word on the TRP.

It's your cash.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
