    Les Baer Premier II, 10MM Hillsdale Build March 98, NIB. MSRP $3274.00. This pistol has some shipping/handling rub on the right side muzzle area as the bluing on the Les Baer guns is very thin. Tried to get it in the pics. The rear sight is plain fixed MMC, front site is tritium which is dead...

    . I may buy this ^^^ tomorrow. I’ve read up a bit on the Hillsdale guns and there’s some mystic and then there’s the ACW guy saying the ones made in the next state over were better because of the newer equipment available to them. It ^^^ is near 20 years old. Been refinished and carried for...

    Slipped by the range this afternoon with a pair of .45s & a 2011. 100rds of .45acp 230gr ball & 72 rds of 124gr ball in the 2011. 10yds on each gun. Opened up with 4 quick mags ripped through the Alchemy on a mini-silhouette. Ran 2 quick mags through the Monolith Heavyweight at...

    As you probably can tell from the pics, the Monolith gets its name from the full length dust cover. This is the heavyweight model, so that dust cover is square the entire length. The standard Monolith has a rounded dust cover and in my eyes, doesn’t look quite as monolithic. :) Options on this...

    I have an early Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special and I really like it. I recently ran across a Baer 4.25" that an individual was selling to fund another project. It too was an Illinois gun and he advertised it as a stainless Les Baer Commander with approximately 100 rounds fired. This was fine...

    I can be in a pretty good spot as far as not buying and selling guns and then I buy one and end up with 3 in like a week. 1st one I got was this Les Baer 38 super hwt mono. This is a sweet gun and my first Baer. Yes it is tighter than Dicks hat band, but it is a phenomenal gun. There is a...

    Does anyone know if CJ's "Delivered Price" includes sales tax?

    So after getting 1500 rounds worth of intimate with a CZ 75 Compact I bought from Addict switchback a couple months ago, tomorrow I will be blasting away with my Baer TRS. Just thought I would let everyone know...

    You’ve acquired a broad collection of items that fill specific niches within your obsession, but to outsiders they all appear to be multiple examples of the same thing. It doesn’t matter the hobby. Whether firearms, Martin guitars, violins, fountain pens, thimbles.....whatever. I have a friend...

    I recently started carrying a Staccato P duo for the higher capacity and also the red dot as my aging eyesight is making it more difficult to clearly see the front sight. The main drawback was the size which would make it more difficult to conceal. Or so i thought. I decided to compare them so...

    Was doing some research and stumbled upon this review from 2000. Look at what the prices were for a WC and Baer back then. I should have stocked up! LOL! High-Dollar 1911 .45s: Wilson Combat Beats Baer and Clark - Gun Tests | The Consumer Resource for the Serious Shooter (gun-tests.com) I...

    Good morning Addicts! I AM NOT beating a dead horse with another “which is better?” thread. I’ve owned both Baers and Wilson and have always been happy with both! My question to you fellow enthusiasts is given the current climate and pricing, is there any reason why you would go Baer over Wilson...

    I was looking at these markings on this frame and slide, wondering if this gun was exported and reimported. Anyone see anything like that on a Baer before? I know there is a pretty good following in the Philippines. These markings are small, but they remind me of stuff sent out of Germany...

    I was finally able to get both of these recent acquisitions out of the Kali DOJ jail and out to the range on Friday. Since the forecast called for torrential downpours to start on friday and going until??? I decided to grab both and head out to try and get some time in before the rains. I will...

    The old Brown-Baer shot great at last Sunday's match so I'm going to shoot it at this coming weekend's big veteran's charity match. My rusty reloads the other day reminded me that I foolishly let my last Chen SI mag well go with the Colt Competition I sold last year. I checked Chen's site but...

    So, since I have been neglecting my 2002 Hillsdale Baer Stinger, tomorrow will be Stinger Day at the range. I usually use 230gr boolits though it, but might try some 185's again. Which boolits do you prefer in a Stinger?

    Good afternoon gentlemen! I have finally saved up enough coin to add another specimen to the stable. I am not starting a “which is better” debate, because both of these pistols are top notch and are a lot of gun for the money. I have narrowed it down to Baer’s new heaveyweight premier II and an...
