    It was pretty cool :cool:

    The TGO1 is one of my favorite 1911s and since its introduction over 10 years ago, I believe only about 200 have been built.

    In the Gun Library at the Hamburg, PA Cabelas sits the first TGO1 built with serial number RL10001. Mine is number 44.

    The price was $3999 :faint:

    I didn't buy it guys. I've already got one :cool:

    It would be cool to have the first, but not for $4K.

    I just did a quick search on gunbroker. I didn't find any listed. What are they going for?

    That is pricey but for a #1 it would be nice.

    I think retail price from Springfield is about $3200. However, I don't believe they make them very often. I believe they build them in small batches.

    I agree 100%. I've always wanted one for the cool factor, and #1 would definately be the definition of the cool factor, but for $4K, no way for me.

    I always wondered what they did with number 1. $4k is too steep for me too, guess I'll have to settle for #8. :)

    True. It's probably priced about right for what is, the times, and how hard they are to find.

    It looked brand new as well.

    It's actually the first I've ever seen in a shop, Greg. With so few built, the chances of seeing one are very slim, even in a store like Cabelas.
