Springfield Armory’s elite 1911 TRP is now available in the powerful 10mm cartridge. Springfield released two new TRP models, one with a 5-inch barrel and a long-slide with a 6-inch barrel. Both variants offer tactically proven engineering, greater stopping power and now more terminal velocity.
The TRP (Tactical Response Pistol) line earned the FBI’s coveted HRT 1911 pistol contract, and before the release of these two new variants, the Springfield TRP Operator 1911s were only available in .45 ACP. The TRP has been the standard for serious fighting handguns since its introduction, and the new 10mm variants continue that tradition.
“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,” Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese said. “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.”
The forged steel frames and slides of the TRP models are fitted to Match Grade stainless steel barrels with fully supported ramps. The frames and slides are coated with Black-T, a corrosion resistant finish that is designed to protect the pistol from heavy use and harsh conditions. Integrated three-slot accessory rails allow lights and lasers to easily be attached. Both variants feature 3-dot tritium night sights. The 5-inch version features tactical-rack rear, while the 6-inch model has a fully adjustable rear.
