I have a full railed TRP Operator, and I'm wondering if its okay to switch to a traditional length guide rod? If so, what exactly do I need to replace?

Thanks!

Yes. Absolutely. All you need is a GI style guide rod and a spring plug for a Govt model. Very simple to do. Just re-use the recoil spring thats already there. Plenty of brands to choose from. Below are links to all you would need you need from MidwayUSA.

Would there be any negative effects in terms of doing that?

This would not work on the full rail TRP because it is a bushingless bull barrel design. If you want to put in a GI style guide rod, you will need a reverse collar plug. Like these:

Of course there are other brands available, just make sure it is the reverse collar, closed end plug if you intend to use a GI guide rod with a bushingless 1911.

Or one of these :

I have one installed on my Operator, no noticeable change in recoil impulse, and makes taking the Operator down so much easier.

My bad. I assumed it was a regular bushing set up like the standard TRP.
