    Wow, that is a very nice long slide Baer. When you shoot it, can you do a comparison to how it shoots vs a standard 5"?

    On a GOOD day I can manage a target like this with my Kimber STS II. When I shoot like this from any gun I'm happy, I can't imagine the Baer shooting any better than that in my hand. And as I'm out of practice it will take some time to shoot this good again.

    I have a concept 7 commander size in SS. Super tight and nice. I also have LB cartoon grips for mine. I ordered it in for a friend back in 1998 I believe. But he ended up selling it back to me. Lucky me. Ron

    I've generally considered Les Baer 1911's to be the best.

    Wish I had one. Congrats.

    Bear makes a extremly well built 1911. Just as basic as a 1911 "should" be but at the same time refined as one could ask for in a balance of the two things. Hard to put into words but easy to see when shooting one. And I love their blue finish, just looks great.

    Can't go wrong with a Baer.
