    In the next few months I will be picking up a new 1911. I have it narrowed down to either a Guncrafter Industries no name, or a Les Baer Premier II. I was hoping some of you that own one or both could shed some light on the situation and help me make my choice. Thanks in advance.

    Two of the best values in the 1911 world IMO. Though the PII is a great 1911, and I liked mine a lot, I'd say if you can swing the extra cash, go with the No Name which is right at the top tier of the semi customs.

    I'd give the edge to GC, but you can't go wrong with either.

    If you want a Baer, go with the SRP.

    I have a No Name 1911 and a Special Forces by Ed Brown. Both are extremely well made. Both shoot very well.
