I am sure they did! I have close to 300 rounds through mine and it hasn't made it any easier to break the slide loose. For me at least, i hope it stays that way.

About the same number thru this one, still as tight as crap. I owned a Bear TRS Comanche for about 2 years. Never got any loser after many many rounds. I bet these PIIs will be tight for years to come

I honestly wish it was a wee bit looser, this thing is brutal tight

The wonderful thing about tight pistols is it's a hell of a lot easier to make tight ones a little looser than it is to make loose ones a little tighter.

Ahhh very true

But does it need to be so tight it makes me feel like a 9 year old girl when I am trying to chamber a round!

Been married for 20+ years, I would think that that particular motion using my arms and hand would be in my favor and I could rack that slide, repeatedly and often

They look nice, pretty aggressive texture for a wooden grip. Carrying IWB can be a tad bit abrasive on the skin But it's not too bad.

Nice collection going there for sure. I picked up a used Baer Stinger a couple years ago...and the card board box was included! Since then also bought a new Brown Carry, but like the Baer better...may think about getting a full sized Baer when I finish this project and get home.

Hey ruggles, i was able to shoot mine outdoors at fifty yards today. Got an honest 2 1/2 group with six shots on only my second attempt. just using a handload of mixed brass and 230 grain ball. Mine does not have the 1 1/2 inch guarantee. I was shooting seated with a backrest. Was also able to make some good hits on a 35 pound barbell plate at 130 yards. The baer gets better all the time.

Kinda one of those things that one is never enough Sounds like you have plan to enlarge the 1911 family. I really like the looks of the Baer SuperTac full size.

Very nice indeed I do not have the 1/2" either, I can not imagine I could ever really take advantage of that kind of mechanical accuracy Sounds like you had a great day of shooting,congrats Looks like you and you Baer are warming up to each other.
