    Les Baer UTC, .45 ACP, 1.5" accuracy guarantee, no FCS. This was a custom order pistol from the factory that arrived in October 2018 (nearly a six month wait). The pistol is spec’d with the following options:

    1) 1.5 inch accuracy guarantee at 50 yards
    2) No front serrations
    3) Semi-naked slide (has “Baer Custom” logo on right side, no “45 ACP” markings on left)
    4) All black rear sight, tritium front sight

    This gorgeous pistol has been fired 525 times with Winchester 230 grain FMJ. 520 of those rounds were fired using a Wilson 47 magazine and they fed/fired perfectly. Five rounds were fired from one of the three supplied Baer magazines, which produced a single failure to feed (hung up on ramp).

    This piece has only slight wear marks on the outside of the barrel due to the bushing lock-up, a slight amount of wear beneath the slide stop where it interacts with the frame (not visible when assembled – there is no “assembly scratch”), some wear on the face of the recoil spring plug from disassembly (using a synthetic bushing wrench) and some brass kisses above the ejection port. Other than that, it is like it came from the factory.

    This is an incredibly solid pistol – it feels like a solid chunk of steel in hand. It has been pampered over the break-in period, never holstered, and never used for drills/training that could cause damage to the pistol’s finish. It has never been disassembled past the basic field strip for cleaning, and has never been modified in any way. Trigger is very nice, the thumb safety is breaking in (was firm at first, but is easing up nicely with use). Checkering is straight with nicely uniform terminations on the frame. The three Baer magazines and one Wilson 47 magazine that I have used with the pistol seat fine, but a few other Wilsons I have tried (ETM HD +P) with extended baseplates will not completely seat in the pistol – not an uncommon issue with Baer frames. The pistol is NOT ridiculously tight like you hear about with some Baers – it is tight, but very pleasant to work with and easy to disassemble. The only tool required is a bushing wrench, and the bushing moves without a crazy amount of effort. It is just as easy to disassemble as my SACS Custom Carry.

    The pistol ships with the Wilson magazine I used for the break-in as well as the three supplied Baer magazines, test target, 1.5” certificate and everything else that came with the pistol originally to include the lovely cardboard box. I will ship the pistol in an MTM Case Guard gun case for protection during transit and will send you the factory box and accoutrements either along with the shipment or separately depending on what is cheaper.

    I am asking $1911 firm for the pistol (which includes the extra Wilson magazine and MTM Case Guard case). Shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer and I will only ship to an FFL. I anticipate that if you want insurance on the pistol, it will have to be shipped overnight. I live on the Colorado Front Range, and would prefer to do a face-face transaction at my FFL if possible. Pistol will come to you clean, lubed and ready to shoot. No inspection period or returns. For payment, I will accept USPS Money Order. For a fellow Supporting Addict, I will also accept a personal check. The pistol ships no later than the next business day after payment clears. Only trades that may interest me are the following in new or very close to like new condition and in stock form – no modifications: 9MM Browning Hi-Power, Nighthawk T3 in 9MM or GI CCOs in 9MM. +/- cash depending on the trade.

    My apologies for the lint on the following pics ...

    I was almost at my breaking point on this, but a railed Pro stepped in the way. I'll get one like this one day!

    Nice pickup! Can't find fault with your decision ... doesn't get much better than a full build from SACS IMO. I sure love mine and it is the last 1911 I would ever part with. This Baer is phenomenal to shoot too ... just a different build philosophy/personality to the gun.

    Good call SLAM. UTCs less FCS are the very best. I’d have a hard time parting with mine.

    Thanks gents. Feeling good about the decision ... just a momentary lapse in judgement to put her up for sale in the first place.

    Thankfully you can to your senses. Sweet Baer. I'd never sell mine.
