1911 TRP™ Handguns

The TRP™ offers fully featured platforms specifically designed and built for demanding 1911 enthusiasts. Drawing inspiration from the Springfield Armory® Professional 1911, TRP pistols undergo meticulous hand fitting for both form and function. Whether you seek classic simplicity, light-bearing versatility, or, for the first time within the TRP family, a 4.25-inch model with Carry Contour, each Tactical Response Pistol is built to the same exacting standards with a keen focus on premium quality and reliability.


When the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team chose the Springfield Armory Professional, it established the performance and feature set required of a modern, hard-use 1911. Inspired by that collaboration, the Tactical Response Pistol (TRP®) was developed to deliver the features and performance of the FBI’s custom pistol in the semi-custom category. Soon after its introduction, the TRP became a legend in its own right. Today, Springfield Armory proudly carries on this legacy with the new family of TRP’s.


The foundation of our 1911’s is built upon our unwavering commitment to crafting them from the finest materials. TRP™ pistols are no exception. The forging process produces a superior firearm with rugged durability — and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

The art of building a TRP™ demands a hands-on approach. Each pistol begins with a forged frame and slide for strength and durability. For enhanced precision, each pair is hand-selected for slide-to-frame fit and numbered to marry them with their matching components throughout the build process. The result is a premium fit, with refined blending and rock-solid performance.

  • Ambi Thumb Safety

    Easy to engage strong or weak-handed, the TRP™ features a ambidextrous thumb safety.

  • Cerakote® Finish

    Offering an attractive look as well as both lubricity and rust-resistance, all TRP™ pistols feature durable Cerakote finishes.

  • Skeletonized Hammer

    Skeletonized for both reduced weight and faster lock time, the hammer of the TRP™ matches the rest of the pistol’s performance features.

  • Forward Serrations

    To allow for enhanced manual operation of the slide, the TRP™ employs forward slide serrations for ease of use.

  • Gen 2 Speed Trigger

    All TRP™ pistols feature the Springfield Armory® Gen 2 Speed Trigger that combines improved performance as well as impressive looks.

  • Two-Piece Magwell

    The TRP™ employs a two-piece magwell that makes reloads both fast and intuitive. (Not applicable to Carry Contour models.)


Hold a TRP in your hand, and you will immediately appreciate the frontstrap checkering. Cut directly into both the forged frame and mainspring housing, the checkering is measured at 20 lines per inch (LPI) and offers excellent grip with either wet or gloved hands. Typically reserved for custom firearms, this time-intensive process is one of the defining features of the TRP.


Providing an additional touch of custom detail, all TRP™ pistols feature finely cut sighting plane serrations along the top of the slide. The result is not only attractive and expertly executed, but offers the shooter an enhanced sight picture and maximum light diffusion.


A legendary firearm deserves a superior grip. For this, Springfield Armory® tapped VZ Grips® and their combat-ready Hydra™ series. The deep relief channels provide aggressive purchase without being overly sharp, while exposing the layers and patterns of the G-10 material.


The slim profile of the 1911 TRP™ is now complemented by a custom inspired Carry Contour frame crafted from lightweight forged aluminum alloy. The bobbed portion of the frame reduces potential printing while maintaining a full, comfortable grip. This feature is available on select 4.25” TRP™ pistols.


For precision, even in the worst lighting conditions, TRP™ pistols are outfitted with a tritium three-dot sight system. The front sight contains a single tritium vial while the rear sight contains two and is serrated for reduced glare and fast target acquisition.
