Springfield Loaded TRP sounds cheap when racking the slide
Own a number of 1911s varying in both quality and price . . Kimber, Ed Brown, Nighthawk Custom. Added a Springfield Loaded TRP to the collection, and while racking the slide, it sounds gritty . . (Springfield stamped a fit control number, which is slightly raised, on the channel that complements the disconnector). You can also hear what sounds like the guide rod spring binding . . factory two piece full-length guide rod is still in place. My other 1911s including the Kimbers (Pro-Custom Shop) rack back on glass and sound custom / solid. Is this to be expected from Springfield as normal design protocol like a rattle, or is this something that needs refining?
