I have one a little earlier than the one in your OP and it has been a fantastic pistol. Machining is well done and the pistol shoots better than most of my other 1911s. I have no regrets with the...

I've got one of the Gold Cup models and had some issues with it in the beginning. I had to have it almost dripping wet in order for it to run properly. As I've shot it, it continued to improve...

If the serial is in the 230-24? range, then I would guess around 83-84. The information I have suggests that the FN BROWNING rollmark may have appeared in mid-82 and the T marking was a little later...

As I recall from earlier threads, I believe mine and the perfesser's are from the same time frame. I have had mine for a number of years and plan to hang on to it for quite a few more. Excellent...

You're right, I don't see the guide rod sticking out the front in your pics.

I have a 2004 model and it has been a great pistol. As others have stated, yours looks stock other than the grips. Mine came with a one piece barrel, but I wouldn't worry about it either way. SA will...

Good looking shooter you have there! I really like the Milspecs and have a couple of them myself. One newer one similar to yours and one four digit model from the eighties, although it wasn't called...

How about this one?

From looking around, it appears that the design of the crest changed at least once along the way. This one should be correct for the time-frame you mentioned.

One of those questions that may never fully be answered, but on a more selfish note, I'd love to see some pics. :rolleyes:

I have an early blued model (NM 4999) and the barrel is marked identically to FN257's first pic.

BTW, OP...nice pistol!

I have a small collection of data I've gathered over the years. Best guess from what I have would be 1978. By the way, I own 1640XX and most of the ones I've seen from that range have all been very...

Possibly an Argentina Hi-Power. That's right in the serial range where the slides were simply marked with "F.N. BROWNING".

Congrats on a great deal!
I agree with the advise to oil it up and allow the parkerizing to soak it in. Not only does it give the pistol a darker appearance, it also makes the finish appear more...

I can't say why the dual spring setup is used, but my Champion is one of the only autoloading pistols I own that has been 100% since the day I brought it home. I've also never used any tool or clip...

There are also a couple of examples of GSP's for sale with pics over at cherrys.com. One appears to be an older model and the other looks like a more recent version.
