    Yeah, the TGO1 is a pretty special 1911. :)

    My Baer SRP will shoot at least as good as my TGO, but the TGO is better finished and more refined.

    Don, does the TGO still use the Nowlin barrel?

    I know the Pro doesn't.

    Actually, I guess I should ask Gary that question. :cool:

    Posted over in the other thread that they use a SA match barrel. I think that the Nowlin barrels did have a few causalities, but I suspect that there was some financial motivation there too. I believe that the early SA Trophy Matches were Nowlin barreled, but I think that they also currently use a SA barrel.

    That's what I thought.

    Honestly, I believe it was Springfield's way of making more profit on the gun, but that's just an opinion.

    Yeah it really was. I wasn't trying to take advantage, he called me, needed to sell them quick and asked if I had $3100 on hand.

    You can add mine to the list. #10154.
    It's a great handgun from a great company.

    Gary, since you made the chart, please change my name to bac1023.

    I only used bc1023 on that one forum because my account got lost somehow. :dunno:

    Many thanks, SpringerTGO. How about your manufacturing date & target date.

    Many thanks for the correction, bac1023.

    It will show the next time that I post up the chart.

    Thanks :cool:

    I guess tracking down all the TGOs would be quite a challenge. :)

    I wouldn't worry much about the TG02 or 3. There is really nothing at all special about them.

    The "date completed and test fired" is 6/25/10.
    Same date on the target.

    For the record, the current Springfield Armory MSRP on the TGO-1 is $ 3367, and they are sprung with a 18.5 Wolff non variable recoil spring.

    Sounds about right. I know retail is a few hundred more than the Pro.

    Unless it sold recently, the TGO2 with the first serial number is at Cabelas in Hamburg, PA. Matt bought the first TGO1 from the same place.

    Thanks, bac1023, what's marked on your barrel hood?
