Springfield Armory 1911 Chris Kyle Legend Series
TRP Operator

Introducing a Limited Edition Tribute
to 'American Sniper' Chris Kyle

In partnership with the Chris Kyle Foundation and the Kyle family, Springfield Armory® has introduced the Limited Edition Chris Kyle TRP™ Operator® as a part of the Legend Series of pistols.

A portion of the sales proceeds will provide direct support to the Chris Kyle FROG Foundation.

Why the TRP™?

While in combat, Chris chose the Springfield Armory® TRP™ for its reliable performance and toughness. In his best-selling book, American Sniper, he credits the TRP™ with saving his life.

"In 2004, I bought a Springfield TRP™ Operator®, which used a .45 caliber round. It had a 1911 body style, with custom grips and a rail system that let me add a light and laser combo. Black, it had a bull barrel and was an excellent gun - until it took a frag for me in Fallajuh. I was actually able to get it repaired - those Springfields are tough."

What's included?

  • A serialized 1 of 1,000 1911 TRP
  • A presentation case included with the pistol
  • A Chris Kyle FROG Foundation commemorative coin
  • A copy of American Sniper autographed by Taya Kyle
Our pistol is #255 of 1,000

  Last month's article was all about Tier 1 AR's and Colt's TDP. This month our tech article is all about barrels. Sorry if this gets long as there is a lot to talk about.

  The barrel and bolt in the AR platform is everything. It's the main difference between a "hobby gun" and a "work gun". What you intend to do with your AR will determine the type of barrel you need. Are you using your gun for shooting paper targets or 3 gun competition? Are you hunting rabbits or coyotes? Are you using the gun for home defense or just competition? All of these different uses will impact your decision on what type of barrel you need. There are different types of material used. We'll start with these first. The materials to look for are Stainless, CMV (mil-spec), & cold-hammer forged CMV, with the last two being chrome lined or melonited. If a company isn't willing to tell you what material they use in their barrels, they aren't worth buying from.

  Stainless Barrels have a reputation to those who value Precision. The properties of stainless steel make it easier for manufacturers to finish the bore and the rifling with a higher level of consistency. When you want the highest in accuracy afforded by the AR platform, go stainless. You can't abuse a stainless steel barrel and expect it to maintain the level of accuracy as when you first purchased it. Mag dumps and frequent high volume shooting sessions will kill the accuracy of your SS barrel slightly faster than it will Chrome or Melonited barrels. Prolonged heat can erode the throat of the barrel and your accuracy will go south in a hurry. Throat erosion is what eventually kills accuracy.

  CMV if you remember from last months article is what the TDP calls for for all Military Colt M4's. It's the standard material used in quality AR barrels by the top Tier 1 manufacturers. If it's the top barrel material used, is there not a better option?

  A Cold hammer Forged or (CHF) CMV barrel. Cold Hammer Forging of barrels has been known for decades to produce the most accurate, longest lasting rifle barrels obtainable. The Cold Hammer Forging of barrels is accomplished through intense hydraulic pressure applied at opposing angles by carbide steel hammers. During the hammering process, a mandrel is inserted into the bore while the carbide steel hammers shape the barrel around the mandrel creating the chamber, the lands, and the grooves. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, the Cold Hammer Forging process creates a defect free bore and the most consistent chamber possible.

As for barrel lining, chrome lined vs melanited. Chrome lined is called for in Colt's TDP and is a great option. Chrome lining keeps the barrel from corroding and extends the overall life of the barrel. Chrome lining has some drawbacks as far as accuracy is concerned. The inconsistencies in the coating process can affect accuracy and are not consistent barrel to barrel. Melaniting on the other hand is just as corrosion resistant but applys much smoother and more uniform for consistency across the board.
Daniel Defense, LWRC, FN, & BCM all manufacture CHF barrels. My personal favorites are the Daniel Defense barrels for the price and availability. They are hard to beat. All my DD barrels are sub MOA if I do my part with match ammo. In the stainless category, my favorites are from Noveske. They are high priced but extremely accurate.

Next month....chamber specs and twist rate...
