    I was Googling Springfield TGO1 to see if I could find out exactly which year mine was built and found my 1911 pics posted on this foreign gun forum. I have no idea what they're saying or even what language it is, but certainly European.

    Its amazing what gets around the web. :dunno:

    You'll see the pics if you scroll down and then you'll also see the legend under the pics. Strange, but humorous in a way. :rofl:

    Its also cool that the 1911 is popular around the world. :cool:

    Turkish.
    Google translate does not do a good enough job to bring out the discussion, though.

    I never thought about the value of your guns. I wonder if that is even in the ballpark?

    Yeah, I actually mentioned Turkish in my original post, but edited it out before posting because I wasn't 100% sure.

    Thanks Jim.

    Now I'm seeing some of James' and Don's pic on there too. :rofl:

    Strange that people would post other people's pic on their gun forum. :headscratch:

    Yeah, I saw that.

    Well, they're old pics now and need to be updated, as they're missing some of the best models. ;)

    I just got off the phone with Springfield Custom and found that my gun was built in June 2003.

    That's what I was looking for when I found the site in the first place. :cool:
