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.

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

Thanks Jim.

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:

You guys really think they are posting for the 1911s? Really?

I think we all know how well known worldwide the Turks are for their rugs.....Bac and his famous carpet is the subject not the 1911s. :)

Its on a project page, not just a forum thread. It looks like the guy is trying to pass it off as his gun. :upeyes:
