    I thought I'd throw this out there. I picked this up at a gun show earlier this year, and I've tried to get the hard chrome finish to grow on me, but it just hasn't. I like my guns blued/black.

    Per a call to LB, this Premier II was built in August of 1995 with the "Tactical Package". The sights are recent TruGlo TFOs. Unfortunately, I don't have the fancy cardboard box, but it will come with 2 8-round Baer magazines.

    I've tried to take photos of all of the marks I found on the gun. It's got a few scratches, but to me IMG_1149.JPG IMG_1150.JPG IMG_1449.JPG IMG_1450.JPG View attachment 185943 IMG_1453.JPG IMG_1455.JPG IMG_1346.JPG IMG_1347.JPG IMG_1352.JPG it is in remarkably good shape for a 23-year old pistol that has been shot and carried, which I guess is a testament to the durability of the hard chrome finish.

    I'd like to get a TRS or UTC or maybe an SRP or Custom Carry. I'd be fine with one with a bit of character in the finish, and I'd be willing to add a little cash if appropriate.

    I've had a couple people ask about a cash price. I'd still prefer to trade, but I would take $1300 shipped.

    Thanks for looking.

    Yup. I thought that was odd, too.

    How about a pic of the fit of the MSH - bottom back side? Does it look like the MSH is fit to the pistol or an add on?

    Here are a few more pics. I'm by NO means an expert, but it looks to me like the MSH could be a later addition? Looking closely, there also seems to be a little spot of rust around the base of the lanyard loop, which would also make me think it might not be original (although I might be giving the factory too much credit). In addition to not being an expert on 1911s, I'm not an expert photographer, but hopefully the photos show this well enough.

    I also found one more scratch: the safety was off when I was looking it over for marks originally - I *did* make sure the gun was clear :) - and I missed one under the right-side safety lever.

    As I said in my earlier post, I'm willing to add cash if needed for a trade, and of course I'll take these flaws into account.

    I have this gun, which is more like what you want, and you have more what I want. Mine is in VGC only shot about 3 mags after Alchemy finished. Just don't have it for the old girl. It is the most beautiful, accurate 1911 I've ever handled. PM if interested. Thanks in advance.

    Bump with lower price. I just bought a gun from the classifieds on impulse, and now I have to pay for my sins. $1300 shipped.

    I’m not into the chrome look myself, but $1300 shipped for a Les Baer in this condition is a freaking deal.
