I'm looking for a nice Les Baer TRS with no FCS.

I had a Pro for sale/trade on here but that gun has sold.

Not new to the site but I'm a reader not a poster. I have 70+ positive feedbacks on GB and can forward to anyone interested. Thanks!

Any particular options you want or don't want on the TRS, FCS vs none, magwell, etc..? And are you looking for a newish gun only or is seasoned OK?

I'd prefer no FCS and similar condition to my Pro which is very lightly used. That being said I have very little self control so who knows what might interest me. :D

May I ask the reason for wanting a TRS instead of the Pro?

Not liking the rail or just looking for something else?

And Buckhorn has a TRS that I lusted after and gave heavy consideration on buying.

Fair question. I was really hoping that this Pro would stick but I think a TRS is a better package for my use. Part of it is me not warming up to the rail like I'd hoped but I also prefer how a Baer fits in my hand. I'm not sure why Mr. Baer specs his frames the way he does but they just feel right to me.

I know the exact TRS you speak of and its pretty good looking. Might have to twist Buckhorn's arm a bit on that one!

Good reasons.

I've chased pistol and after shooting them once was ready to move on.

Yep, gotta try em all I suppose. I do still really like this Pro, if I could justify or needed a railed 1911 it would be my pick. But right now I'm in a regular old blued and wood grips mood....with lightning bolts!

That's a pretty good mood to be in, they really are great guns. I'm pretty focused on this Recon now so the TRS may be going elsewhere. It's a excellent gun but it's getting lonely since I got the railed Baer from Jolly.

Thanks for your input. Would you mind elaborating on the subject please? I've owned a few of both, liked them all but favored the Baers. I tend to shoot Baers better as they fit my hand better. I'm starting to think my hands are a carbon copy of Mr. Baer's.

then I would pick up a used Baer and send it to a smith and have the barrel refit

10-4, good advice. I read and learned a lot on the recent thread about a Baer breaking a barrel lug. For me its probably worth the hassle to get a gun that fits me better. For some reason I can ride the thumb safety more comfortably on a Baer than any other 1911 I've owned.

I believe check the gunsmithing thread, recently long conversation bout Baer barrel fitting, etc. Very interesting and informative with comments by several of the highest quality 'smiths here chiming in

Thank you to all who have replied and sent PMs. As of now I have a deal I'd like to see through and will update when/if its finalized.

Did you find a Les Baer Thunder Ranch? Or are you still looking for one? I happen to be in possession of a very nice one I just bought from Forum member. I might be interested in selling or working out some sort of trade.
