Well,

I had one of these a couple of years ago and decided that I had to many 1911's and traded it away, 6 months later I realized how much I missed it so my Good friend George Talia ordered me one just like my old one, no front cocking serrations. I honestly think that Les and company did a 1.5 job on this by mistake. The slide is twice as hard to pull back than my old one and the trigger has zero creep in it, I am extremely happy and will NEVER get rid of this one :cool:

I've got another model Baer lined up (helluva deal too) but my heart wants a nonFCS TRS. Absolutely beautiful.

The only thing I don't like about my TRS is the night sights just don't seem quite bright enough to me. I even sent the slide back for replacement vials and Les said they were within spec, whatever that is. :dunno: I'm still kicking around the idea of having it chromed this year. Not sure though if I want to take the chance of someone other than Baer doing it.

I was just looking at a lightly used TRS today. I love my 1.5" Premier II, and have long thought a TRS would be a good companion to it. My only complaint is the sights. I think Novak sights are the most overrated on the market. Trying to do one handed cycling drills with Novaks reminds me of a phrase about a monkey and a doorknob. I much prefer 10-8 sights, which Ed Brown is now offering as an option.

My Les Baer Thunder Ranch Commanche Special is one of my favorite 1911s.

I really like mine. Park'd, no FCS. In my opinion, the TRS is one of the best bangs for the buck for a no frills, solid 1911.

Looks even better in your pic's than the sale ad pics - I remember lurking when that one was up. Nice looking pistol.

Congrats looks nice.

Did it cost a lot more to get with no front cocking serrations?

No extra charge, just order or have it ordered that way

Crazy John at proload usually has some nonFCS Baer's in stock, and is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
