    I have not been able to find much info comparing the Pro and TGO1. How do they compare? I take it the Pro is more tactical and the TGO more target oriented. How do their features and quality compare?

    Quality is the same and I think your analysis is spot on.

    The TGO1 probably has the nicer finish, though I love the Pro's Black T also.

    Springfield puts the TGO1 on a slightly higher shelf, as they charge more for it even without the night sights that the Pro comes with.

    Here's my TGO. I think a Pro is in my future. :supergrin:

    What barrel does your TGO1 have in it Brian. I know they have gone away with the Nowlin barrel in the PRO but I'm not sure if you can believe the rumors that they were having issues with them.
