I'm trading the black ss target and a Taurus pt 145 for it. I think it's worth the trade.

I also just bought a colt ss gold cup for 900 out the door. The older 80s style before the finger groove under the trigger. Man this things smooth and accurate. Hope the TGO is as good!

Interesting thread. I got one of the first TGO 1's (low teen serial number) and it is still a sweet pistol after 70+K rounds. I'm on my third barrel, second slide stop (had to be replaced after the first barrel failed) and just replaced the ejector. Other than that it is still running strong and accurate as ever. Any idea as to how high the serial numbers are now?

Interesting,,,,,,,,, mine was born on 10/17/06 and it's 122. I see that they don't make many of these just to put them on a dealers shelf. Hmmmm.

Maj Tom,,,,, did SA replace the barrel and slide stop under warranty? I think one I saw on gunbroker was 135 or 6, as best as I could make out the number.

Yes David replaced both barrels (first Nowlin was replaced with a Kart and then back to a Nowlin) and slide stop (I opted for a black one) under warranty. Mine is 014...

Three TGO's on the broker

There are three TGO's on the broker site. ALL are #6,,,, a TGO 1, a TGO 2 and a TGO 3. As I said,,,,, all three are serial # 006. Quite remarkable. They appear unfired. Wish I had enough money to buy all 3. They are being auctioned separately.

Sorry if I am in the dark here, but when did TGO production cease and why?

TGO-1 is still made. The TGO-2 and TGO-3 were discontinued a few years back. My guess is that the 2 and 3 didn't sell well.

Don, not to pry, but what number is your TGO? It looks like 12_ from your pic.

Do you know when it was produced?

I don't think Springfield Custom made too many of these over the years.

mine is 129 (mfg Nov. 2008) and one in the Springfield catalog is 147.

from what i've heard there were ~500 TGO's made total between the 1, 2 and 3 trim levels, and this was a while back.

My TGO-1 is 122,,,,,, 10/06. 7 in 25 months, so they aren't a fast mover. But they are a great shooter.

BC1023,,, where are you in PA? You don't have to post here, PM me. Just wondering,,,with so few TGO owners it would be nice to hook up with some others.

The TGO1 was probably the rarest.

Of course now they're the only ones available.

I shoot mainly at Target World, as I'm in upper Bucks.

I prefer shooting outdoors though.

There's one on GB auction site. It's NIB,,,, I just saw it. I have nothing to do with the listing.

BTW, it has a 6/25/10 born on date and is # 150 of the TGO1 line.

OUCH!!! $3k

but we now know that they are up to 150 of them, which keeps it really rare.
