    Got the Baer back today...I picked this one up a few months ago from Haris1 and sent it off for a bit of a facelift. Got the frame and magwell refinished in Color Case Hardened, nitre blue small parts, grip safety and grip screws, flushed and countersunk the slide stop, and master polished slide. Turned out very nice with a pretty nice take on the classic look. Grips are presentation grade Afzelia Xylay burl by Cherokee Hills Exotic Grips. I'm obviously no photographer...it's pretty dang stunning in person. 20200522_191858.jpg 20200522_192231.jpg 20200522_192842.jpg 20200522_192733.jpg 20200522_192347.jpg 20200522_192522.jpg

    All the work was done by Bobby [email protected] Gun Works. Pretty decent turn-around time...right at 3 months.

    Carry gun, shooter, or simply a wow piece? Looks fantastic.

    Range gun, but definitely a shooter. Gotta put that 1.5" guarantee to the test. :)

    Those grips definitely match the frame. Turned out great.

    Thanks for sharing pics. I've been considering a build similar to this for some time and its nice to see what a blued top and case hardened bottom on a baer looks like
