Add the cost of the gun, the custom shop cost, the ammount of time waiting to get it back, and I think buying a new TRP is cheaper. Biggest problem is right now, the TRP is on factory backorder. I sent my loaded to Robar and I'm very pleased with the result. The slide action is sooo smooth, almost like it's got ball bearings!
It looks nice too I'll probably send my Champion to them eventually, right now, it's too new to let outa my hands. What did the work from robar cost?
What was the turn around time? The reason I think it looks like a good deal is that the work is done by the custom shop. I know the word "custom" is thrown around a lot, I don't believe for a second that the TRP is assembled in the custom shop.
If I send in for new sights or a new barel, etc They keep the old one? What kind of crap is that? Well, you could always keep the parts you want to replace. If you were having a new barrel and bushing installed, take the barrel and bushing out before you send the gun out.
Doesn't work that way, they will not work on it unless you send them the complete gun. When the Springfield Custom Shop does work on your existing A1 pistol, the parts that are removed are returned with your pistol. The exception to this is for night sight installation, when we take your existing sights in trade for the new sights with the tritium inserts. The cost is lower for the customer that way.
Send it to Lou WWB , Apr 26, Apr 26, 5. What does your Pro need? Apr 27, 6. Damn they cut way back. Apr 27, 7. Fatbob Frank , Apr 27, Apr 27, 8. Early this year I was was looking at sending our Trophy Match in for some work to them as well. Got tired of waiting for them to re-open. Went to NHC instead, better prices, faster service, knocked it out of the park for us! Mike , Apr 27, Apr 27, 9. Apr 27, Umm, sorry to be such an ignoramus, but who is Lou? PM is fine, but maybe I'm not the only one who wonders?
Along those lines, is there a thread I should search to answer this and other similar inquiries about work? I polished the frame, and it became a 10 to 15 shooter before stoppages reoccurred.
On inspection the breech face was about the roughness of 80 grit sandpaper, and would scrub off enough brass to cause a feed problem. The breech face needed polishing, but would cause a headspace problem. At this point I contacted Springfield and was told that I needed to send it in for warranty work, and I would be reimbursed for the shipping.
I sent the weapon to them, and in about 5 weeks received it back. But I was never reimbursed for the shipping, although I tried to get it worked out I never received an answer. It now functioned but shot 5 to 6 inch groups at 25 yards. I disassembled it and found that it was almost impossible to get the barrel bushing out, as it was so loose that it was cocked in the slide.
After getting the bushing out it could be put into the slide and it rattled when shook. I again contacted Springfield for a bushing that I could fit myself. I was told I would have to send it in as any work I did would void the warranty.
At this point I ordered a NM bushing from Brownells and fitted it myself. I now have an unwarranted that shoots sub 1. The point of this comment is to let others know that while I now have an accurate pistol, I could have had one a lot sooner if I had bought a Kimber. Springfield dropped the ball big time on the pistol I bought form them, and then compounded it by not living up to their warranty promises. I'll just say that you shoot as much as I do after a couple of boxes of shells through these guns you ought to hit like that.
I've owned them plain and I've owned them fancy but the ones I keep are the ones that are dependable. I like a good looking anything but if it or they aren't dependable then I trade. Wood Butcher December 1, I'll second that Markbo. None of my Kimbers cost half that amount either but they will certainly match that performance.
I am sure this is a fine, fine But being one of those on an income limited by my job, it's out of my range. Markbo November 25, 8: Having spent over 20 yrs in combat arms and having fought in three different combat zones I feel qualified to pass on what I've learned about the.
All the bells and whisles are nice but not nessesary, my rock island. Maybe I am an old skin fint our just a poor old disabled vet that hasn't got alot of money but it seems to me that with all the 's out there they could bring the price down a bet. I like the even the ones that I was issued in the Army I was very pleased with even though most guys I talked to on the range and other wise said they couldn't hit nothing with one, until I should them a couple of tricks I learned. One of the tricks was to fire the weapon a alittle low as you bring the weapon up instead of trying to bring the gun down.
