Springfield is willing to honor famous US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle who chose Springfield Armory® TRP™ for its reliable performance and toughness in combat and credited in his best selling book “American Sniper” for saving is 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.”
