I’ve been considering a new 1911 and the TRP is on my list of possibilities. Do you think these are worth the additional 4-500 more than the basic loaded models? What kind of accuracy do you get? Do they have a tighter slide and barrel fit than the loaded models? Thanks for your answers.

Yes, they do in fact use the one-piece barrel. As for are they worth it, I would pass, personally. I would instead drop down a level & then add/change what *I* wanted instead of all the bells & whistles I didn't need nor wish to pay for.

My regular old loaded has a one piece. I'm certain that the TRP is one piece.

I own 3 SA 1911s & I've never heard of a two-piece barrel separating. What *I* bitch about them is their lower accuracy versus the one-piece versions. Virtually all top-notch aftermarket barrels will be one-piece units. I would highly doubt the TRP has a two-piece barrel, I would have to see that to believe it due to the cost of the gun.

The only thing I dislike about my TRP is that I couldn't afford two at the same time
