Black Sheep :)

I tend to be attracted to stainless guns. However, I wanted one black 1911. I've been reading about finishes, asking Bac questions etc.
I stumbled upon this about a week ago. Read some more and decided to
go buy it today. I hope that I can contact Les Baer and find out exactly when it was made. The night sights are dim enough that I'm guessing it's 7-10 years old. It's in good shape though and doesn't appear to have been shot very much. It's getting shot tomorrow!

Looking through the paperwork I found a sheet that I missed earlier. It's a price list from January 19, 1998. So that's a clue as to the age of the gun. Does anyone have any idea if these could be the original grips on a Baer SRP from that time? Front fiber optic??

As a fellow stainless guy, I must say that gun is gorgeous. I really dig the black trigger as well, and that surprises me.

Maybe the best value out there in a 1911...even 14 years later. Nice one you got there.

Thanks guys. I feel like a little kid on Christmas Eve. I can't wait to shoot
it tomorrow. I'm going to bring the TRP, a Novak Colt and the SRP.
Sitting on the couch I think the Baer has a better trigger than the Novak.

BTW, one of my friends was with me today and bought her first 1911.
We know what that means...

Can't wait to hear how the 3 compare.

Very nice, Rhonda.

Congrats on a top notch 1911.

Just get a set of cocobolo grips from Baer and you'll be good to go.

No silly, she's going to need a bigger safe! She's shot enough to know about hot brass.

Thanks Brian. Do you have any ideas/opinions on the fiber optic front sight? I'm anxious to call Baer and get the skinny on this gun. I'd like it to be as original as possible.

I don't think either the front sight or the grips are original, but I may be wrong.

The gun shows very little wear. The black is mostly still on the barrel. I'll let you know what I find out. I continue to consult and enjoy your buyer's guide.
