The TCP, its compact stainless slide is tri-topped and has aggressive slide serrations. A top-rib helps reduce glare and it features a new U-notch rear sight with a whopping .156 wide notch paired with a brass-beaded front sight. Its ramped bull barrel has a 30 degree crown and is flush cut for easier disassembly. Its recoil system uses a similar flat wire recoil spring to our ECO. Rated for 15,000 rounds in 45 ACP, that’s three times the round count of a typical 1911 dual recoil spring setup. The TCP’s grips are also new, with a tapered profile that is slim at the top and full-width at the bottom, giving shooters with smaller hands an easier reach to the trigger. With three facets that mimic the distinctive slide, their serrated features encourage a high, deep grip. The one-piece magwell, flat K-style trigger and square hammer round out the features. All-in, the TCP tips the scales at just 32 ounces, making it an accurate pistol that’s easy to carry on the regular.
