    I checked prices on these, new, and the best price I could find was $1780, plus shipping. Since I bought it and put more rounds through it, I'm knocking $200 off what I paid, seems fair.

    I purchased this just a couple weeks ago from another member here. Great shooter. He had put 300 rounds through it. I put another 500 rounds through it, so it is now, according to Les Baer, broken in. I used Baer's recommended ammo, American Eagle hardball.

    Perfect operation, like new condition, but it is just not for me. I took the plunge and purchased two STI 2011 and two less expensive 1911s from members here, so I'm going to let this one go.

    I threw the box away it came in, but have the Les Baer Patch and bushing wrench.

    I prefer PP FF but will take any other form of payment too.

    Did you center the rear sight?

    Yup, centered the rear sights and now the rounds hit center in the target. Funny how that works. :)

    The Custom Carry is a nice gun. I had picked one up a few weeks ago. So far, mine has been been accurate and reliable. I probably wont sell it unless I'm hurting for cash.

    I think every aspiring 1911 aficionado should at least try a Les Baer once in their life.

    Yes, it's a GREAT handgun, just can't justify keeping it now that I've picked up two STI 2011s, one new and one gently used, and then also two 1911s, lower price.

    So, it's got to go. Hope responding to comments on this thread is not a no-no.

    Conversation during for sale threads are the norm. I agree the Baer CC is a lot of 1911 for the money. I really like mine and while I have had weak moments, its still here and likely not going anywhere.

    I think your price is about perfect. Thing I don't understand is some may think that's too much, but will gladly spend more for dan Wesson. IMHO, the Baer 1911 represents the most 1911 pistol for the money, bar none.

    GLWS, be patient as its a bad market currently. If I needed another gov't sized 45auto, we would be talking.

    Friendly advice, Centuriator, from someone who's been where you're at. FWIW, I have had a number of Les Baers move in and out of my safe over the years. I've had as many as 3 at one time, and as few as none; multiple models. The times I've been without one has been like an itch I couldn't scratch. My Addiction is never really in check without one. So I grabbed another TRS (my favorite) shortly after Les discontinued them, and I don't plan to let it go. If I were in your position, I'd sell the two lower priced 1911s and keep the Baer- but that's just me.

    For reference, I also have two STI 2011s, and another on the way. I really like my 2011s, and one of things I like about them is that I could possibly trade one of them down the road for another Les Baer, lol. GLWS

    Excellent gun at a great price.....it will move at this price. If I had not just bought one....we would be "having a conversation". Nothing prettier than a blued Baer(well, almost nothing)

    Valentine's Day is in a few days and nothing says "I love you" like a 1911!

    So..guys...am I expecting too much at this price? I paid more from a fellow member, but maybe I was stupid. :)

    It's been less than a week. Give it time. I'm sure that there are members who haven't even seen your ad yet.

    Thanks, I'll let it ride. I do most of my selling on Gunbroker, so...this is a different experience. I want to sell it to a fellow Addict, since I bought it from one.

    I think your price is good, I wouldn't want to sell mine for that! It's just not the best time for us to be selling :o.o:

    Roger that. I don't want to take advantage of anyone, since Don had put 300 rounds through it, and I put another 800, so I'll hold where it is. Some day my prince will come.
