GENESEO, IL,–(Ammoland.com) – Springfield Armory’s most elite production 1911, now available in the potent 10mm cartridge. Two new 10mm TRP Operator models – one with a 5-inch barrel, and a long-slide with a 6-inch barrel – deliver tactically proven engineering, greater terminal velocity and now more stopping power.
The TRP (Tactical Response Pistol) line is based on the custom Professional Model that met the stringent specifications to win the FBI’s coveted HRT 1911 pistol contract. Until now, Springfield’s TRP Operator 1911s were available in .45 ACP only. Since its introduction, the TRP has become the standard for serious fighting handguns – a tradition the feature-rich 10mm models continue.
“We have offered 10mm 1911s from our Springfield Custom Shop for many years but this is the first production 10mm 1911 offering in the Springfield Armory lineup,” says CEO Dennis Reese. “The TRP 10mm is soft shooting, built for accuracy and takes advantage of the full potential of the hottest 10mm rounds, just as the cartridge was originally intended.”
