Enthusiasm for the 10 mm pistol is extending into 2018, as Springfield Armory has announced its most elite production 1911s will be chambered in the potent cartridge.

Until now, Springfield’s TRP Operator 1911s were available in .45 ACP only, but consumers will now have the choice of 10 mm with either a 5” barrel, or a long-slide version with a 6” barrel. The TRP (Tactical Response Pistol) line is based on the custom Professional Model that met the stringent specifications to win the FBI’s coveted HRT 1911 pistol contract.







“We have offered 10 mm 1911s from our Springfield Custom Shop for many years but this is the first production 10 mm 1911 offering in the Springfield Armory lineup,” says CEO Dennis Reese. “The TRP 10 mm is soft shooting, built for accuracy and takes advantage of the full potential of the hottest 10 mm rounds, just as the cartridge was originally intended.”

Forged steel frames and slides are precision fitted to match-grade stainless steel barrels with fully supported ramps. Frames and slides are coated in Black-T, a self-lubricating, highly corrosion resistant finish that is engineered to shield the firearm from the heaviest use and toughest conditions. Integrated three-slot accessory rails allow rock-solid attachment of lights and lasers. Sights are 3-dot tritium night sights, featuring a tactical-rack rear in the 5” version, and a fully adjustable rear in the 6” model.

The Octo-Grip front strap and mainspring housing coupled with G10 VZ Grips assure a confident hold. Once the ambidextrous safety lever is flipped, the Springfield Armory Gen 2 Speed Trigger, tuned to a crisp 4.5- to 5-lb. pull, delivers custom-grade feel and performance. The 10 mm recoil is tamed by properly balancing the recoil impulse with a heavier slide/barrel combination in conjunction with an optimized recoil spring. Each 10 mm TRP Operator is shipped with two 8-round magazines.

The new 10 mm TRP Operator models weigh in at 40 oz. (5” barrel) and 45 oz. (6” barrel).

Now available in two models:
PC9510L18 5” 10 mm TRP Operator MSRP: $1790

PC9610L18 6” 10mm TRP Operator MSRP: $1842
