    Have 45 and 9 Custom Carry both gov size. Thought I would give the Comanche SS a shot. Called CJ it’s on the way. Since getting the first LB couple months back, bunch of plastic shooters finding it hard to get in the range bag.

    First post toward the purchase of my first 1911: My search for my first 1911 brought me to this forum. I have tried to do all my homework, reading lots of previous posts to avoid boring everyone with the same old requests, but here is the story in a nutshell. I am seeking a more traditional...

    I have been looking over all the sites to order my first semi custom. Budget wasn’t really an issue and there are probably prettier finishes but I really liked the options on this one and it ships now, not terribly patient when it comes to new a toy. So, based on what John said it should be...

    Hi Everyone! Greetings from Oregon, I’m not entirely a new member here but I haven't been able to do really anything other than private message or like posts over the last year or so. Special thanks to @snwbrdr202 who I purchased a Les Baer Premier II Heavyweight from in November of 2020 (I had...

    So I recently acquired a UTC and a Stinger. What’s the current wisdom on Baer break in? I’ve put 200 rounds through each so far. Haven’t field stripped or cleaned yet. Just added some CLP to make sure they were run wet. UTC has been perfect from round 1. Stinger had a few hiccups with new...

    Traded into a Concept V last month and have a few questions. Asked on a couple of other 1911 websites but really didn't get any responses. First up, mandatory picture after some new sights, grips, single side thumb safety, and a little cosmetic cleanup. The questions pertain to the extractor...

    got this from seller "thewichitagunclub" from this forum. Finally got to shoot her. Tight, smooth, more accurate than me. the only thing i didnt like is the trigger and the sights. Gonna have the trigger redone to 3lb and sights to 10-8 rear and either dawson FO or gold bead. no ftf with 100...

    I've been lurking for a few months now, decided it's time to say hi. I was introduced to this place, and my addiction to 1911's, by my physical trainer. We discovered a mutual interest in firearms, since then we have spent a lot of time lifting weights and talking about guns. Needless to say I...

    Since I got back into 1911s, I became very interested in a Les Baer 1911. So i have been browsing for one at the right price for me. I went to the gun range today and I saw one sitting there in the case. It's priced at $1600 and I got to handle it. It looked very tempting and at a reasonable...

    I have always wanted a Les Baer 1911. However I have read on this site as well as others horror stories about after sale customer service. I have also read about numerous issues with the way Les Baer's are built such as out of spec frames, mainspring housing pins, magazine issues. I am not new...

    Part of my gun collection cleaning initiative. I'm kind of sad to let this one go, but I had planned to use it for a build that has not materialized and I need the funds to go somewhere else. For sale is my Les Baer Premier II, serial number 396. According to Baer, this pistol was made in the...

    Took the new UTC 1.5, Premier II 1.5, and the Boss to the range today. Man it was hot but all 3 of the Baers ran great with 0 issues. I smoked through 400+ rounds of Geco FMJ 230 grain and a box of federal HST 230 grain JHP. I wore a old shirt that is now spattered with CLP and in the trash. I...

    I bought my Les Baer UTC from Crazy John in March of 2019. I love the Les Baer hard fit build philosophy. When you buy a Les Baer it's like the first time you put a new baseball glove on your hand. It functions but its tough to use. I really like how when you "use" your Baer it breaks in. I...

    No pictures as it is just "plain jane" but damn it's a shooter. I could not be happier. Feel like I stole it if a $1900 gun can be stolen for $1500. Won a GB auction that went down to the wire when the other bidder dropped out. If it was someone here, my condolences. I just couldnt let...

    I have a used UTC Baer with about 1800-2000 rounds through it. I'm the 2nd owner, I bought it used local. It is one of my best shooting pistols. I'm getting away from 45 and moving toward 9mm/38super. Carry wear plus it had a magwell fitted at one time Front Dawson, rear Wilson sight Baer...

    So, I'm thinking about buying a Les Baer 1911 in .45, with a blue finish. I started doing some research on them, and it seems there are two groups of folks - those that love LB guns and those that don't. My sense is LB guns are either loved or loathed for the innate individuality of each gun...
