Today, GBGuns takes a look at the Springfield Armory TRP Operator pistol. The video includes everything from a full unboxing of the pistol, digging deep into all the included material, to a detailed fieldstripping of the handgun.

He take a close look at all the nice TRP enhancements to the 1911 platform, from its forward cocking serrations to its excellent night sights to its generous amount of rail space on the dust cover.

GBGuns goes hands-on with the TRP in 10mm, from an unboxing to a full teardown.

He considers the handling characteristics of the pistol, including the G-10 grips and the matching front- and backstrap serration patterns as well as the “memory bump” beavertail grip safety and the ambidextrous safety. In addition, GBGuns checks out the tight slide-to-frame fit and the loaded chamber indicator on the barrel hood.

The TRP Operator brings a lot of enhancements and upgrades to the 1911 platform, and this one is chambered in the powerful 10mm cartridge.


Checking the manual, GBGuns does a field strip of the TRP Operator to take a closer look at the internal parts of the pistol as well as show you what’s required for basic cleaning and maintenance. Special attention was paid to the stainless steel barrel, with its polished feed ramp and overall excellent fit and finish. GBGuns also points out that the pistol has a “Series 70” style firing mechanism, preferred by many 1911 enthusiasts for the best trigger pull possible.

The TRP’s fit and finish proved to be top-notch, from the stainless steel ramped barrel to the excellent grips.

A full reassembly shows step-by-step how to get your TRP back together and ready for the range. In addition, the trick for not marring the frame with the slide stop during reassembly is covered.
