    the day I sold my 2 coonans I ordered a TRP - arrived a few days later. to tell the truth I don't know why I bought it ?????

    1st thing I did was replace the ridiculous full length guide rod (that ya need an allen wrench to remove) with a new bushing, recoil spring plug and short guide rod (shouldn't need a "tool" to field strip a pistol)

    2nd thing was to "paint" the front sight with brite white nail polish

    3rd thing was to "hide" the giant hard "box" that the pistol comes in (now keep it in a soft case of about 1/2 the size as the original)

    it shoots well enough - it's an "ok" pistol

    uh, so what's your "opinion" of the TRPs full length guide rod and having to use a tool to remove it ?

    From the FWIW dept, NO 1911 needs a full-length guide rod. They're a nuisance that does nothing. I played around with one years ago. Couldn't tell the difference between it and the stock shorty. JMB apparently didn't think it was necessary and I'm sure not gonna dispute him.

    I'm indifferent to it. This is not a gun I'd grab in a situation where tools wouldn't be available to me. That's what Glocks are for.

    ah, I'm suggesting that perhaps your "indifference" may be because you don't have a pistol that uses a full length guide rod (or do you)
