Funny... the Les Baer Custom Carry in my safe is the perfect 1911 for me too. kfjdrfirii

Its a Les Baer. Made in 1998 as a P II with MMC adjustable sights but they were replaced before it came into my posession.

I prefer a fixed sight gun any way.

chris, nice .45. i used to add adj sights to .45s, but then i saw the light and went back to fixed sights. with these old eyes now, it just doesn't much difference. just shoot center of mass. lee

Very nice! I have only one 1911.



Colt .38 Super. Great shooter with pretty low recoil. :D

I need to try one of those 38 supers sometime, I always end up with 45's... :cool:

That is a beauty Chris, it must be a tack driver, thus your enthusiasm.

The Colt MK IV Series 70 pictured, isn't my most accurate 1911, but it is my favorite. it could be because it saved my Lab from a copperhead bite -
or it could be because the MMC sights are so kind to aging eyes.

Disregard the metal Taylor 28 shot drum magazine and zero in on the sights.
I drifted the rear sight and used 45 hardball to shoot it in, and that is what took care of the copperhead.

Hi Nframe, The Taylor drum is fun to play with, you wind the spring pressure up until you get positive feed of hardball, and after you find where it feeds reliably, just remember how many clicks. It has a spring release on it, so you can load it and leave it loaded.

The Colt has a nickel finish, I swaped out the hammer for a world war ll checkered type, just looked better than the original.
