    Dang! That's the best looking Baer I've ever seen!

    I want to say perfect but I don't believe in such a thing. That however is a pretty good definition of it as far as 1911's go, for me anyway.

    Very well done sir.

    Wow! That's crazy good. Love every bit of that!
    To me Baer are some of the best looking 1911's out there, I love their serrations, they look better naked, but their bluing leaves a lot to be desired. I've thought of building that very pistol multiple times in my head, ball cuts and all. It turned out better than I dreamt it. Congrats to the owner of that fine piece!

    That turned out looking great. The blueing looks perfect with the lack of roll marks.

    Was hoping you'd say that! :) I know it may not be the most popular nowadays or longest lasting with all the other fancy newfangled metal finishes, but to me it's still the best looking finish on a 1911. Awesome work! Bookmarking y'all for future work...have a Colt begging for freshening up :)

    Simply beautiful... Is it as tight as a Baer?

    As a LB owner. That is a very smooth looking gun. Are you going to give us the process of the bluing.
