    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 :rofl:

    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 :rofl:

    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 :rofl: 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. :wavey:
