From the article...

"At first, frames and slides were provided by a vendor, but in 1993 Baer purchased a machine shop in his home town of Allentown, Pa., and by mid '94 he was making those too."

From LBs site for the Ultimate Recon...

Psssst Hokie.... that article was written 7-8 years ago. Baer didn't make railed models until recently and yes he gets the frames from Caspian.

Just about all the original railed 1911s used a Caspian cast frame. Some companies have switched to a forged part but I doubt Baer sells enough railed models to justify it.
