The only difference I can see is the slide is fitted to the frame on the trs. Am I missing something? Both are more accurate than I can hold em so I'm thinking what's the p
oint.

Here is a list of differences off the top of my head for standard models.

Checkered vs. serrated MSH
Solid vs. 3 hole trigger
TRS logo vs LB Custom on slide
Thin grips vs. regular grips
Single Side vs. a Ambi thumb safety

You cannot go wrong either way.......I really like my TRS.

The only other thing I can think of is TRS comes with 3 seven rounders and the CC comes with 2 eight rounders. The big thing I guess is the ambi safety, I have no use for one myself but some people like them. When I ordered my TRS I thought it wouldn't be long before I switched the grips but they really grow on you so they are still on it.

You can order the Custom Carry without the ambi safety and the solid trigger for no up charge so it still cost a little less then the TRS model

I'd probably go with the TRS, as I really like the look, but you can't go wrong with either.

The TRS is next on my list. I wouldn't kick a CC w/ single-side safety out of the safe, either. In fact, it may come down to which one I come across first, once I've saved up the necessary fun-tickets. My Concept VII really needs a big brother role model.

So it really comes down to a cosmetic issue?

If both the guns are comparable in virtually every other way, why not?

I can't even go with brand preference, because they're both Baers.

Now, if we're talking about the SRP, that's different. :supergrin:

ok. i read, i learn. for that much jingle, i've got to have a checkered msh. i have no use for ambi safety either. and i've got to have the thin grips. never had any until i bought the new agent. made the best feeling pistol in the world feel even better. i don't know about the front serrations though. the more i look at the pictures, the more i like em. 16 to 18 wks is a long time. so to keep my sanity, i'm going to send my original series 70 to colt for a refinish, and have it fitted for a solid bushing. then i'm sending a pro carry 2 to wilsons for a barrel fit. i think i could fit the lower lugs myself, but i don't want to take the chance on a 200.00 barrel. thanks for the info. you boys are darn near encyclopedic.

and the new agent is at 450 rds without a hitch. :cool:

The SRP is a better 1911 than the CQB or Special Forces, in my opinion.

I really like the SRP and feel its the best pistol Baer builds.

It cost less then the CQB and isn't much more then the Ed Brown.

uh, yeah i missed a few things. i've decided on the trs, but i've another question, which you're gonna think is crazy. can i use mags with flat metal bases, such as colt or others without pads. it's purely asthetics but i don't like anything sticking out below the grip frame.

Actually, the street price of the SRP is almost always more than either of them. Its hard to get an SRP much under retail.

Furthermore, many, including mine, have the $300 accuracy guarantee.

SRPs are much harder to come by. CQBs and Special Forces are dime a dozen in comparison.

I was just checking Gunbroker.

There are about 20 Special Forces models on there and about 40 CQBs.

There are ZERO SRPs.

I like the fact that the SRP is a rare breed in comparison.

I just got quoted $2,279.00 for the SRP that doesn't have the 1.5" guarantee, for me I think it's fine as is.

The price with the 1.5 package is $2,635.00

Is there any mim in them and will they build it with no roll marks?

That is a nice price at $200 under retail.

Wow, they're charging $350 more for the 1.5"?

I believe I got mine for $2500 with the guarantee, but that was in 2008.

Did the let you swap the baer coat for hard chrome for no up charge?

Same amount of MIM that is in the Pro and isn't an issue. If it is, you can get what ever parts you want in the Custom Carry

Too bad the SRP is what the FBI cancelled their contract on :tongueout:

I like the exclusivity. Baer doesn't build a whole lot of them. ;)

Which parts are mim on the custom carry and what are the springfields going for?

Mag release, slide stop are the 2 that I can think of. None of the fire control parts (hammer, sear, disconnect) are MIM.
They start at $1700

I just looked it up and it seems nice but by the time I add the finish I want it wouldn't be much if any less then any of the other ones.

But if you like select parts from different makers its a great option. The custom shop guns are every bit as tight as a Baer.

Too bad my Pro hasn't ran for more than 200 rounds without a failure, even after it's latest trip back to SA :crying:

I think I have a lemon FBI pistol...The whole aura of the "FBI contract" has worn off on me.

SA does good work, or at least I hope they still do since I have CC's on order. Out of 4 recent production Pro's I've shot, none of them compared to my 2005 model.

My Pro has a MIM disconnect so I doubt the CC is any different.

Awe I see. The two options are the same price so I'm just curious if I could swap the baer coat out for HC for the same price.

You probably can.

...though sometimes options are funny. It comes standard with Bear Coat, so it may be more to switch it.
