I've heard both sides of this argument. Is the SRP a glorified Custom Carry?.......

    Although I have both, I not an expert on either the 1911 or Les Baer. My CC has the original Bear Kote, applied by Rocky Mountain Arms. They were also nice enough to do a little trigger work and the trigger is now exceptional.

    I'm breaking in a new SRP, both guns came from CJ, in hard chrome, with the accuracy guarantee. So, the guns aren't exactly apples to apples.

    I had intended to run my own test. But, I quickly realized that at 20 yds., in an indoor range, they both are far more accurate than I am.

    As I told CJ, far as I'm concerned, a burglar should write me a thank you note if I shot him while trying
    to rob me. Or, maybe I should write an apology to Les if in pronouncing the perp dead, the cops didn't admire my really tight group.

    What is your opinion. Is the SRP more accurate? Has it had a lot of extra work?

    Personally, I would easily take the CC (or TRS) over the SRP, get neither with the 1.5, and use the cost difference on ammo and beer. Just my 2¢.

    To me,the SRP seems to be a CC that has (according to LB website) a 2.5 group guarantee,as well as a glass case.

    I thought about getting one of these ,but I have become a fan of the base features of the TRS.And for the difference in price,I don't think the glass lid case warrants a premium in price over the TRS.

    Just like the CC is just a TRS without the TRS logo.....I like my blued CC; classic design and no BS....Just like the Thunder Ranch. I have never been able to tell the difference between the standard pistols and the 1.5", other than price, at my skill level.
