Default The ///D picture thread of July's damage

This past month was pretty brutal...but well worth it. Came across some cool toys that I just "had" to have and couldn't pass up. The TRP Operator was definitely a cool find at the Reeds sale, even the SA reps were surprised to see it there.

Springfield Armory TRP Operator (w/ full dust guard)


Kimber Super Match Series I


STI Trojan


STI 2011

Haven't shot any of them yet, but I'd say the obvious favorite is the 2011, then the TRP Operator.

There is actually more...not so much as rare like the others, but functional. Kimber TLE/RL II w/ the following upgrades:

Bomar adj. rear sight
Fiber optic front sight
12.5lb recoil spring
17lb mainspring
Wilson Bullet proof sear spring
Full trigger job to 3-3.5lbs. (reshaped sear, polished/deburred sear/disconnector, adjusted new sear spring).
Techwell Magwell
Black Alumagrips

Big thanks to Frank @ Irvington for getting this done for me. He went above and beyond expectations. There's a reason Irvington seems to be getting busier and busier lately

Hey Dean, I think the Para should have gotten some kind of honorable mention. Or is it that you just forgot about it with so many fancy others? Have fun with your new kids.......
