Hi everyone! I've been looking for an new or almost new non-rail TRP for a little while since every dealer is out of stock in my area. So I go online today and BAM!! SoCal Gun just got a bunch of them in! A-Kote's and SS and the A-kote's are on special for $1,399! They have a few, so if you've been looking for one, hit them up.

The only issue is that to sell them in CA they have to sell them with the ugly (to me) brown wooden grips. So I talked to them and they were really helpful. They said that when I pickup the gun in 10 days I can literally walk out of the store, turn around, come back inside and they will swap the grips, for the nice grayish blue color ones that they are advertised with, free of charge!

The Beretta M9 was my primary weapon in Marine Cops, as I was a helicopter Crewchief/Aerial Gunner , but this is my first personal handgun. I've wanted a 1911 forever, and finally decided it was time to pull the trigger! ; )

Thanks for the help SoCal Gun!

Haha! Yeah i guess I did, didn't I! Thanks everyone!

I've kind of always been a, buy it right the first time, kind of guy. So when a friend came over and saw my basically new welding equip collecting dust, he offered to buy it all off me. I countered with a trade for his Kimber Custom TLE, haha! But while he was thinking it over I did my homework and decided that if I was going to finally get a 1911, like I've always wanted, I was going to do it right, no compromise. So I decided against the trade, and just bought the TRP!!

...I'll pay for most of it with the welding equip anyway! ; )

First, thank you for your service to our country. Second, terrific choice for your first 1911. Great price too. Around my area we can't touch a TRP for less than $1500.

It's just the standard TRP grips, but it looks so much better IMO.

This is NOT my gun, just an example:

Great choice! The TRP was what i went with for my first 1911. Was half rail so gad to pay a little extra for SSE but worth it to me. Congrats!
