I have one in the past. I sent it out for refinishing, and they screwed it up. I gave them a 2nd chance,but it still didn't work out, so I sold it at a loss.

I do have a TRP full rail operator (new) on lay-a-way, however.

I don't own one, really want the trp operator with a fix sight.

Are you thinking of getting one?  I hear nothing but good things about the TRP.

ya thats exactly what i plan on doing. TRP opr and then put on a harrison fixed sight. If i could only find one at a reasonable price. They are amazing. i know a few people with the non-operator version but trying to find an operator is pretty hard unless i plan on spending 1600+ just have to wait it out, its so hard. anyone know of any good dealers in houston that can get reasonable prices?

That's the same plan I have, replaced the adj with Harrison sight.  If I can find one that is...

I would do that too, but the Harrison sight doesn't have white rings around the tritium.

I will probably get Nighthawk adj sights installed.

I guess I'll leave the adjustables on there for a while to see how I like them. I just don't have much experience with them and since I'm not hand loading at different weights/pressures. I don't really see the need for the extra edges and snag-ability. But I guess it might serve well as a range gun.

Well, I like white circles around the tritium. Springfield uses silver around the tritium. Hence, why I want the nighthawk adjustibles.

I was shooting my EMP at an indoor range the other day and the light was causing reflection off the silver around the tritium, it was distracting for me.

By the way, John Harrison just posted pic of his sights for the trp operator with dots on the rear sight.
