This is the second time in a row that I have gone to my LGS to pick up a transfer and they have an interesting piece in the case on consignment. Last time I made it a half mile away before succumbing to the addiction. This time I made it all the way home but it was more because of my unfamiliarity with Baer's. Yes I do know that they are fine examples of 1911's but I would like to know if there is anything specific to look for to aid the decision. It is a Custom Carry I think by the websites pics. Looks to be good condition just a little wear at the muzzle, still hard to rack (barely by hand with a death grip on the slide), no box or papers but both mags. Can one contact Les Baer and find out more about this pistol? Like if it is a production gun or one that was ordered with customization. Is anything known by just the serial number (without Les Baer help)? They have a tag on it for $1500+, searching around the sites on the net the asking prices seem to be between $1200+ to $1,800's. So it's hard to tell what would be a fair price without totally knowing the true conditions of these listed pistols. Figured I would ask those on here that deal more frequently with Baers for an education.
