      I think I've decided on my next 1911....

      I hate myself for this "addiction" but I've got to have one.

      Les Baer Premier II Super-Tac.



      Here's another interesting wrinkle on America's favorite 1911. We've added a special tactical package including special sights and a special finish to the Premier II© to make it an ideal duty/ tactical sidearm. Features include:
      Baer NM steel frame, NM slide and NM barrel with stainless bushing

      • Slide fitted to frame

      • Double serrated slide

      • Low mount LBC adjustable rear sight and Baer dovetail front sight both fitted with tritium night sights

      • Lowered and flared ejection port • Tuned and polished extractor

      • Baer extended ejector

      • Baer checkered slide stop

      • Baer speed trigger with crisp 4 lb pull

      • Baer deluxe Commander hammer and sear
      • Baer beavertail grip safety with pad

      • Flat serrated mainspring housing

      • Beveled mag well • Polished feed ramp and throated barrel

      • Baer tactical style ambi safety

      • High checkered front strap @ 30 lpi

      • Pistol tuned for total reliability

      • Baer Premium Checkered Cocobola grips

      • Deburred for tactical carry

      • Bear Coat™ coating on complete pistol for maximum corrosion resistance

      • (1) 8-round premium magazine
      All for a modest $2280.00


      Maybe I'll just get that TRP I've always wanted...

      I like.
      My next 1911 is the Para 18-9

      It is a 1911 in 9mm 18+1 rounds.

      You've got good taste VAMarine. Allow me to live vicariously through you for a bit if you don't mind. If I ever drop $2280.00 at one time on a handgun both it and I will need to seek our lodging and eating needs elsewere. Lest I risk bodily injury at the hands of my wife with said new purchase.

      Thank you.

      I'd have other issues, last time I came home with a Baer, my wife decided she wanted a Nighthawk Custom, luckily for me I found a sweet deal on a Wilson Professional.

      Since I'm looking at dropping some coin, I put in a pricing request to Fusion Firearms for a build 100% the way I want it. I figure if I'm going to go all out I might as well get exactly what I want.

      I'm with this guy.

      You are spoiled rotten.

      I do need a bib for the drool though.

      Well....I think I might be going the Fusion route when I'm ready, the quote for what I want is quite attractive.

      5” 1911 .45ACP standard bushing/barrel config with match barrel
      Steel Frame with rail, bobtailed, no undercut front strap. 30LPI checkering.
      Heinie sights. Standard tritium front (pinned), ledged, QWIK rear (.156 notch, standard black)
      Ambi-safety
      Prefer “narrow” cocking serrations, front and rear such as those seen HERE
      GI spring guide and plug
      Black over gray (small parts in black) Yukon coat (add alternate pricing for entire package Ion Bonded)
      Standard Commander hammer.
      Long trigger
      Fit/finish spare extractor
      VZ Operator Grips, Black, G10

      You are making a good choice.

      That's the color combination on one I got from Fusion. I did the Ion Bond.

      I'll probably have the barrel IB'd but I think I'll probably just stick with the Yukon Coat on the frame...

      I've always had a thing for the black over gray color scheme.

      I've been eye balling Fusion since they started, I'm surprised I've waited this long to order, hopefully in another month or two I will start the process on this one, there's a couple quirks in the quote they sent me to be worked out, hopefully by February I'll get the ball rolling on this order.

      Sorry if I confused you, the frame is T-11 Yukon. Ion Bond can only be done in Black. The Slide and small parts are Ion Bond.

      I have a CCO on order, where everything is being done in Ion. Totally black gun.

      I love my TRS as well, but I wanted a lot of options on this next gun and I've decided to go with Fusion, pretty much the same specs I listed above, with a few "secret" modifications that will surprise some when I finally get my hands on it. I just need to make some revisions and get a finalized quote.
