View Full Version : This is my best purchase so far (it took me five 1911ís to finally get there)

$1615 out the door Les Baer Hardball (used)



After so many guns Iím finally starting to get a feel for what I like/want and the true market value and were to shop around for them. Only now am I starting to catch up on the less than ideal purchases Iíve done early on in my hobby (I think most of you know what I mean).

Whatís great about this purchase is I need a 1911 in this GI configuration for the bullseye competition Iím starting to do. So my choices were rather limited to insanely expensive custom builds or very bottom of the line GI models with upgraded adjustable sights.

I landed a GI model 1911 with adjustable sights with Les Baer quality :D

Nope, wont do. Can't have beaver tail, commander hammer, or night sights or fiber optic sights.

Has to be old school GI or Mil Spec with nothing more than adjustable sights and permitted front strap checkering.

I can't even had the thumb cut out on the grip for the mag release
