I have just acquired a slightly used (1995) Les Baer Concept VII Commanche.

Unfortunately, my AR collection is taking a hit. I am down to 15 now with one more trade in the works for a custom STI SPARTAN.

hey! come on now, i used to have an SIS. All kidding aside it was an extremely good gun and functioned extremely well.
I sometimes am sad i sold it but i did upgrade to a TRP so im overall happy. I personally did not have the problems some people mentioned about the finish being slick and serrations not being useful.

If it weren't for those serration, I think it would be a great looking 1911. Without the rail, that is. :)

No offense meant. Some of the names 1911 manfacturers come up with are odd though.

Envision meeting Bac at the range:

"Hi Bac, I'm Cobra."

"Hi Cobra."

"Bac, I see you have a Trojan."

"Yeah, it's great. Want to fondle my Trojan?"

"Sure. Want to see my vascectomy scar?"

:tongueout:

I love short triggers.

I like them better than 3-hole triggers.

The Concept line is a good line of 1911s.

I own a Concept V, which is a full size stainless gun.

It is pleasingly taunt. There is no slop whatsoever.

Not sure. I have been carrying my Kimber Stainless Pro Carry II for 6 years now. They way I look at it is, if it is not broke, don't fix it.

I feel the same way James.

I keep thinking about carrying my new EGW custom, but I've been carrying my Pro CDP for a while now. :dunno:
