5in trs or 5in custom carry

  1. The only difference I can see is the slide is fitted to the frame on the trs. Am I missing something? Both are more accurate than I can hold em so I'm thinking what's the p
    oint.

    Here is a list of differences off the top of my head for standard models.

    Checkered vs. serrated MSH
    Solid vs. 3 hole trigger
    TRS logo vs LB Custom on slide
    Thin grips vs. regular grips
    Single Side vs. a Ambi thumb safety

    You cannot go wrong either way.......I really like my TRS.

    The only other thing I can think of is TRS comes with 3 seven rounders and the CC comes with 2 eight rounders. The big thing I guess is the ambi safety, I have no use for one myself but some people like them. When I ordered my TRS I thought it wouldn't be long before I switched the grips but they really grow on you so they are still on it.

    You can order the Custom Carry without the ambi safety and the solid trigger for no up charge so it still cost a little less then the TRS model

    I'd probably go with the TRS, as I really like the look, but you can't go wrong with either.

    The TRS is next on my list. I wouldn't kick a CC w/ single-side safety out of the safe, either. In fact, it may come down to which one I come across first, once I've saved up the necessary fun-tickets. My Concept VII really needs a big brother role model.

    So it really comes down to a cosmetic issue?

    If both the guns are comparable in virtually every other way, why not?

    I can't even go with brand preference, because they're both Baers.

    Now, if we're talking about the SRP, that's different. :supergrin:

    What about the Wilson CQB vs the Baer SRP?

    One more how about the Ed Brown Special Forces vs the SRP? :cool:
     
  12. ok. i read, i learn. for that much jingle, i've got to have a checkered msh. i have no use for ambi safety either. and i've got to have the thin grips. never had any until i bought the new agent. made the best feeling pistol in the world feel even better. i don't know about the front serrations though. the more i look at the pictures, the more i like em. 16 to 18 wks is a long time. so to keep my sanity, i'm going to send my original series 70 to colt for a refinish, and have it fitted for a solid bushing. then i'm sending a pro carry 2 to wilsons for a barrel fit. i think i could fit the lower lugs myself, but i don't want to take the chance on a 200.00 barrel. thanks for the info. you boys are darn near encyclopedic.

    and the new agent is at 450 rds without a hitch. :cool:

    The SRP is a better 1911 than the CQB or Special Forces, in my opinion.

    I really like the SRP and feel its the best pistol Baer builds.

    That's only because it comes in a wooden box. :supergrin:
     
  17. uh, yeah i missed a few things. i've decided on the trs, but i've another question, which you're gonna think is crazy. can i use mags with flat metal bases, such as colt or others without pads. it's purely asthetics but i don't like anything sticking out below the grip frame.

    Actually, the street price of the SRP is almost always more than either of them. Its hard to get an SRP much under retail.

    Furthermore, many, including mine, have the $300 accuracy guarantee.

    SRPs are much harder to come by. CQBs and Special Forces are dime a dozen in comparison.
