They're actually hogue grips, cocobolo, smooth, with ambi cut. My only gripe is that they are not rounded to match the magwell...they have the flat middle and smaller radius towards the edges instead of the smooth curve. You would have to be looking for it to notice, but I notice.

They are comfortable so far, but I haven't shot the pistol yet....

They are bull barrels and use a guide rod with reverse plug. You can draw your own conclusions on the merits of a bull barrel, but I have never felt the need for it. Some feel it helps manage recoil, and to some extent it does, but I don't care for the added weight in a 5" 1911. Also, with the bull barrel I would prefer the look of the standard spring and plug with the "filler" style plug that fills in the gap under the barrel. But that is purely a cosmetic thing for me.

Mine is a TRP with a light rail (PC9105LP), totally stock except for the grips. As stated already it has a bull barrel, and the guide rod is the (infamous? In-famous!?!) full-length guide rod that requires a paper-clip or equal to take the gun down.

Here are some shots with the slide locked back:





Once you figure out how to do it, it isn't such a big deal....but I understand how people don't want to have to keep a takedown tool with them. My HK is waaaay easier.

I assume the slide would have to be stainless to prevent wear without using a barrel bushing? Odd that the guide rod wouldn't just have a hex cut into it like the Loaded 2-piece. Or am I thinking right that the hole just has a release in it and it pops off? I thought all bull barrels had that funky looking bell on the end, the lack of one through me off.

Nope, the guide rod and spring remain together and are removed to the rear. The hole is for inserting a small pin that retains the collar around the guide rod and removes the spring tension from the slide. Totally different than the 2 piece, but much less complicated than I'm making it sound.

The bull barrel is less dramatically shaped than I was expecting, too, but it does have a bell shape. It's just hard to see in these pics. It is very thick....

If you look on YouTube for trp operator disassembly, you will see how the guide rod works.
