    I am just looking for a good range pistol to shoot at 25 meters ... How high would you go on a used one in Excellent condition. ??

    I have a line on 2 of them and just wondering how much money to spend (Bid) on one before you are better off getting a Baer used..
    A Baer with the 1 1/2" even used in good shape will go for $1500 if you are lucky but more around $ 1700 or more...

    I picked up an unfired series I Super Match about a year ago for the equivalent of $1200 (it was part of a trade). That was a very good deal, but I wouldn't have bought it if it was much more. While I love the pistol, it's not the equivalent of my 1.5" Les Baer Premier II, and you can find a lightly used Baer for around $1500. There's no way I could suggest passing up a Baer (even without the 1.5" option) for a Kimber Super Match, no matter how much I like it.

    I had 5 Baers 4 had the 1 1/2" .. I know they are better pistols... so you think $1200 is about the top price to look on spending on a Super Match in excellent condition??

    John at Proload told me he thought the 1.5" option from Baer was a waste of money and most of the regular Baers will shoot 2-3 inches at 50 yards. I always couldn't help but wonder if the 1.5" guns aren't built any different they just sort out the real accurate ones and sell them at a premium. :dunno:

    You can find very lightly used PII Baers for a bit over a grand if you look hard enough. I've bought my share of 1,100 dollar ones. The Super Mimbers can had for 1,200 to 1,250 LNIB if you keep your eyes peeled.

    I can't say "that's what it's worth", but that's the most I would spend. Any more than that and you're getting into the territory of the lightly used Baers, and there is no question of which is the better pistol. I do like my Super Match a lot though, and I don't think it gets nearly the credit it deserves. If you can get them down to $1200 or less, I can highly recommend it.

    It may be hard to find an excellent condition model below $1200, but some wear shouldn't be a big deal.

    THANKS to all for the great info....
    I know more about semi custom & full custom 1911's...
    I jumped right into semi custom pistols a few years ago.
    I do not have much trigger time with production pistols and not sure which production pistols are the best for tight groups at 25 meters.. The Valor I got a few Months ago is great at 25 meters that I know for sure....

    Well, the Super Match does have an accuracy guarentee of 1" groups at 25 yards.

    Its the only Kimber to have it. I find mine extremely accurate and far and away the most accurate production 1911 I own.

    1.5 Guarantees are BS IMHO. Can anyone here print 1.5 groups at 50yds?

    God no. :)

    I just find it impressive that a 5" pistol can even do it from a ransom rest.

    Sure! With WWB or Wolf with my eyes closed.:whistling:

    It is a waste for the most part, unless you are a Olympic class shooter.

    I use to shoot my P2 at 100 yards before I moved .....99% of my range time I shoot at 25 meters indoors.
