    Guys, my dad is in the market for a new 1911...It will be his first fullsize (He has a Kimber CDP Pro).

    He is leaning toward a Baer but not sure which one. I told him I'd ask you guys to get some opinions...Don't think he wants to spend over $2K (I was trying to get him to spring for the Sprinfield Pro but those are a little too pricey for him).

    What do you guys think? I've heard good things about the Tunder Ranch...If you were going to by a Baer for carry, what wouold it be?

    Thanks in advance!

    TRS or if he's feeling froggy and wants to splurge..... SRP.

    All the Baers are built with the same quality but only some of them can be ordered with the optional 1.5 at 50 yard guarantee. So he just has to decide which features he thinks would be the best for him. Myself I don't have any use for an ambi safety and prefer night sights so the TRS made the most sense. The TRS comes with three mags where as some others come with one and others two. Some people are put off by the TR logo but it doesn't bother me a bit.

    SRP, Custom Carry, or Concept IV...all beautiful and no-nonsense! Love that Concept IV! That will be my first Baer!

    You can order them without the logo now for no up charge but there is a 12 to 14 week wait for special orders.

    Never shot a Baer, but shot Quack's Kobra Carry last week and that thing was FABULOUS. I will get one probably sooner than later, although I also really like the LB TRS Commanche.

    I vote TRS.


    I think the SRP is the best pistol Baer builds, but they run $2500 or so and even more with the 1.5" accuracy package.

    I agree. In my opinion, the TRS is the best pistol built at its price point. It can be had for well under $2,000. I am not a big fan of the standard pistol with front cocking serations, but they can be ordered without them. My NP3+ TRS eats anything and everything I have ever fed it. It is not a refined weapon (ie. has tool marks inside the slide/frame, ect), but it is fit well and is rock solid!
