Dear wkdk2,

All Springfield pistols are, on really, made in Brazil by Imbel - (Bellic Material Industries), that sends these guns with no marks to Springfield Armory. The Springfield only puts its own marks and gives a better finish.

well I have decided to go with a Kimber TLE/RL II. I am going to take it out and shoot it till I am satified that it is good enough for duty carry. I think after that in the near future I will send it to Ted Yost and have the 1* package completed on it.

thanks for all the advice and info

Go with the Springfield TRP-Pro. Thats what FBI SWAT uses. Or at least the TRP.

What agency do you work for?

If I were able to carry any weapon I wanted for duty use, I would go with the STI Duty One.

If I was allowed to carry a 1911 Duty gun, (unfortunately we're not), I'd buy a Nighthawk Tactical GRP Recon. Very well made reliable gun.

Did you see this post:


LOTS of law enforcement organizations choose Kimber for the accuracy and superior reliability.
