You're gonna like it. Mine runs like a top.
I just put another 200 rounds through my TRS this afternoon.
That makes 4700 rounds down the pipe since July of 2010.
Very nice looking pistol. I decided that I was going to purchase a 1911 from all the major custom manufacturers (Ed Brown, Baer, WC, and Nighthawk). My first one was the Ed Brown but I think my next one jut might be a Baer.

That is a great looking pistol. Use it in good health and be sure to write a range report.

Always carry a knife-they are handy to have
Always carry a reload-You probably won't need it but it is good insurance .
Always carry a light- To see in the dark
I rather be safe then sorry.
It's better to have it when you need it then need it and dont have it.
Is this model Les Baer very affordable? Is it under $2k ?
I just watched a profile on his company on Shooting USA the other day. Very impressed with how he does things there. Will def consider them when I buy a 1911.

What is the FCS option? I'm not familiar with that term.
Beautiful pistol. Les knows how to build 'em. Congratulations!
Post a range report when you can.

However, I've always wondered why some 1911's have these front serrations on the slide. In what way would they ever be useful? I just don't see it myself. Is there really a practical purpose for having them?
Or are they just decorative to make the gun look cool? Perhaps I am missing something. Front serrations look worthless to me.
