    I have owned several (still have a TRS) and seen many Les Baer pistols, and he uses KART barrels with the Les Baer marking on the hood. NEVER ever heard a 2 piece barrel being used by Baer (KART barrels) so I call BS!

    What evidence started this rumor?

    There is one on gunbroker. May have been rebarrelled. Enuff to scare me off of buying it.

    Get the serial number and call Les Baer. They will confirm if they built the pistol or if it was sold as a slide/frame kit that someone else "played with".
