    Ok, finally got around to uploading some photos of the new Baer. I'll eventually take better ones, but this will suffice for now. I can't wait to get out and shoot it next week, probably thursday or friday.

    Dude,your pics look just fine! :thumb:

    Mine,on the other hand,make police lineup photo's look PLAYBOY quality ! :lol:

    Congrats on the UTC, Les' knows how to build FINE guns!

    I have 2 TRS' while a good friend bought a UTC with the 1.5 option back when CJ was having his 1.5 sale.

    My suggestion for you now is to get 1k rds,a bottle of CLP,and go directly to the range.

    IT'S BREAK IN TIME!!!!!

    Can I use standard width grips with longer screws in the thin bushings?

    ya i had to go ahead and order some regular thickness grips. My hands are way to large for the slim lines.

    please let me know how it work for you. My UTC is coming in a few months and will switch out the grips too if I don't like the slim grips.

    Will do. I could have probably just tried grips from another 1911 but I was just lazy and the computer was in front of me.

    So, I FINALLY got to shoot the Baer today. First impressions...its accurate. After 100 rounds my hands cramped up using the slim line grips. Good thing i had my torx driver in my bag, i ended up changing the grips out with the VZ operator 2s on my TRP. WOW. what a difference. My grouping were tighter, the gun was stable in my hands and I felt comfortable going out to 20yards. Then my eyes failed me! I'm planning to go get some new contacts tomorrow hopefully. And i'll be ordering a 10-8 rear for it today.

    I put 300 rounds of various ball ammo through it. I had one FTF at 70ish rounds with WWB using the Baer mag.
    No other problems after that. I used Wilson 47Ds, Springfield's mags from my TRPs, and the Baer mags.
    So far so good. I'm still not as comfortable with it as I am with my TRP but i think with a bit more use and a few changes here and there... It'll be perfect.

    I guess i could try breaking it down...hmm. To clean or not to clean

    I like mine it shoots great I've put about 150rnds.so far with only one FTF due to a mag.I allso put on a set of VZ's the slim grips just did'nt work for me,I went ahead and changed out the grip bushings to standard size,what a pain that was.Good luck with your UTC I know this will not be my last Baer.
