    I have just acquired a slightly used (1995) Les Baer Concept VII Commanche.

    Unfortunately, my AR collection is taking a hit. I am down to 15 now with one more trade in the works for a custom STI SPARTAN.

    Very nice, congrats! :cool:

    I especially like the fine slide serrations.

    hey! come on now, i used to have an SIS. All kidding aside it was an extremely good gun and functioned extremely well.
    I sometimes am sad i sold it but i did upgrade to a TRP so im overall happy. I personally did not have the problems some people mentioned about the finish being slick and serrations not being useful.

    If it weren't for those serration, I think it would be a great looking 1911. Without the rail, that is. :)

    No offense meant. Some of the names 1911 manfacturers come up with are odd though.

    Envision meeting Bac at the range:

    "Hi Bac, I'm Cobra."

    "Hi Cobra."

    "Bac, I see you have a Trojan."

    "Yeah, it's great. Want to fondle my Trojan?"

    "Sure. Want to see my vascectomy scar?"

    :tongueout:

    I love short triggers.

    I like them better than 3-hole triggers.
