If I could have only one 1911...

    ... it'd be a Les Baer Comanche, strong-side safety only. And since I'm not happy until I get what I want, I made it happen. Behold my new-to-me Les Baer Concept VII, born in Feb. 2009. As I posted on another forum, "an IABaer for an IANative."

    Fear not, it shan't be the last. I must now start a fund for a TRS and an Improved! Police Special 5.56. It's a disease...

    Very nice. If you could only have one, might as well go high end!

    Thanks, I've owned others (1911's) before, but none of them hung around for long. Paras, RIA, Kimber and S&Ws. I guess this is why... once you know what you want...

    I will say that of the ones I owned previously, the S&W Gunsite was my favorite. I just couldn't tolerate the FCS.

    I think it would be my hardchromed Guncrafter No Name, but I won't know for sure until I get my hands on it and compare to my others. One of the best shooting and feeling 1911's I've personally ever shot was a TRP. I've shot Wilson's and Nighthawks. Never have shot a Baer or an Ed Brown. My fullsize stainless Raptor is as good a shooting 1911 as I've ever shot also. I have a Wilson CQB and a STI Legacy that I'll be picking up next week, so maybe one of those will take the lead. :supergrin: But, I have pretty high hopes for the GC NN. :)

    I knew I was forgetting something. THE best shooting 1911 I've ever shot, is my Kimber Custom Target II, that was built to bullseye specs and then hardchromed. I could I gorget about that gun? :dunno::supergrin:

    Congrats! I like that alot. I like fullsize 1911's, but I'd have to say I really have a soft spot for Commander sized models. That's a good looking one too. :thumbsup:

    Good looking Baer you have there, and it even came with one of those cool boxes, so you know it's worth it.
