    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...

    I've been looking at Les Baer 1911's and will very likely purchase one. I have a .308 24" Les Baer that I absolutely love, along with a 6.5 Grendel Les Baer, both being accurate and a joy to shoot. But there are so many different models of LB 1911s that I'm confused to know which would suit...

    Just some follow-up pics to my recent first range-trip with a pre-owned, pre-customized Les Baer Concept VI 1911 that I recently acquired. The pistol was pretty dirty after a 580-round session but cleaned-up nicely and is now in my carry line-up. Showing some pics of how the VZ grips were...

    I guess the addiction is growing. I just picked up my LB CC tonight and ran 150 rounds of AE 230gr FMJs through it. The pistol was very accurate (Better than my old eyes) and ran very well. I did have 3 Failure to go into battery in the last three magazines. However I was getting tired...

    Will be my first new LB, my 2nd LB overall and I've lost count on what # 1911 this will be. A well known etailer has the 1.5"guns from time to time and I missed the last one and have been waiting. Even though they have a email notification function, I don't think I've gotten an email from them...
