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 ACW Prime. I simply wanted to ask other addicts that if prices were equal, which you would choose and why? I have never been more on the fence about a pistol purchase, so I’m hoping y’all can make up my mind for me! I would really appreciate any input. Thanks in advance!

If I ever buy a current-production “semi-custom” 1911 again, it will be an ACW. I do like my Baer PII quite a lot, but this isn’t even a close question. ACW doesn’t take a backseat to any of the other semi-custom/high-end production shops, and the workmanship and attention to detail are far superior to anything from Les Baer. In my opinion, of course.

At that price point though, why not just throw a tad bit more at it and get a Nighthawk? i get done with the menu on their website and I'm at $3800 :D

I have both and like both. If I had to buy one it would be the Prime Elite it has a better fit and finish to it. Again I still think you should buy the Prime Elite and start saving for the Heavyweight Baer. You won’t go wrong with either.

You've got my vote 98, Get a NH & be done with it. IMO, the cheaper priced GRP or the Trooper smokes either one of these firearms. I guess you can tell I'm a huge NH fan!!!

But the OP asked about only two & it would have to be the ACW if I had to choose between only the two.

I have a Les Baer and a Wilson. Ive never handled an ACW or even seen one in person but from what I have seen and read I'd say the ACW is on another level.
