Default CUSTOM BUILT Springfield TRP 1911 45/Bay Area

I’m selling my completely custom built series 70 5” Springfield TRP 1911 chambered in 45ACP. This pistol was completely overhauled by Jim Milks of Innovative Custom Guns out of Pennsylvania. Jim was the primary gunsmith for Evolution Gun Works and opened up his own shop, innovativecustomguns.com. EGW makes some of the finest most durable 1911 tool steel parts which are what Jim continues to use. Jim’s work is truly art that that meets functionality. This is hands down the finest craftsmanship I have ever seen in a 1911 compared to Nighthawk and Wilsons. The only parts that are the original are the slide, frame, trigger, and barrel. The frame rails were welded up and the slide and barrel were re-fitted. You can feel a perfect lock up with the barrel lugs as the slide goes forward. It cycles perfectly with 100 percent reliability. I have owned a dozen custom built 1911’s over the last 15 years, made by Nighthawk, Wilson, John Jardine (Valtro), and Garthwaite, so I can attest to the quality of this build. I have only carried 1911’s as my duty gun. Jim has built 4 fully custom 1911’s for me. The only downside with any custom build is the extended wait...and cost. I’m selling this pistol to cover the cost for a custom 2011 build. I have shot approx. 200 rounds through the gun. Extremely accurate; I can shoot 2” to 3” groups standing at 25 yards and one hole groups under 12 yards.

Springfield 1911 TRP FORGED slide and frame

Slide Work:
French border cut in slide
Bottom edge of slide was beveled at a very slight 32 degrees
Barrel refitted and new EGW tool steel barrel bushing installed
Barrel cut and crowned flush with the barrel bushing
New front Novak green night sight, staked into the slide
New solid black fixed Novak rear sight

Frame Work:

Installed new Chip McCormick .250 radius cut “Extreme High Cut Grip safety,” this involves welding up the tang and re-cutting the frame to hand fit the grip safety. This is the tightest and most perfectly fitted grip safety you will ever see. The grip safety is tuned to deactivate with the slightest grip which is ideal for weak handed/one handed shooting. I can’t stress this part of the pistol enough. It’s the finest craftsmanship I have ever seen on a 1911.
Undercut the trigger guard at a 90 degree to get a higher grip on the pistol (reduced recoil/muzzle flip)
Frame rails were welded up; slide and barrel were refit. Zero play in slide to frame fit.
S&A one piece magwell with 20lpi checkering blended to the frame
All the pins on the ejection port side were cut flush with the frame
20lpi front strap checkering

Pistol is completely tuned and has the correct timing cycle. The following parts were installed/modified:

Polished the barrel feed ramp
New EGW (Evolution Gun Works) tool steel Ejector, Extractor, race Hammer, Sear, Sear Spring, Disconnector, and Slide Release
Wilson Combat singled sided grip safety with a dehorned radius on the corner that contacts your inner thumb joint for shooting comfort
Trigger has been tuned with new EGW Sear and Sear Spring to 3.75lbs with a very short and tactile reset
Wilson Combat Extended Mag Release and tuned to drop all mags freely even when empty
EGW one piece guide rod and 18lb Wolff recoil spring

The pistol and guide rod received a Nitride finish. There is some very minor holster wear at the front of slide, top of the slide, and around the trigger guard. I took this into account with my selling price. $1800 invested into it. This is a hand built custom 1911 with all the best parts, built by one master gunsmith, not an assembly line of different smiths. Excuse the oil/prints on the pistol.

I’m located in Danville. No shipping. Selling for $2300 FIRM.

Lowered Price. This pistol is a steal. A TRP alone cost 1600 plus tax. Bump.

Rusbus6959, I'd appreciate you staying off my post. You are obviously uneducated in the market of custom 1911's. There is $1800 into this gun of top of the actual cost of a TRP so your comment is just a bit stupid. Troll else where.
