It’s been another great year for Les Baer Custom. Sales of our award winning custom 1911 pistols and our spectacular Ultimate AR .223 rifles have continued to increase. It’s little wonder, because we set out to build the best pistols and rifles of their kind on the planet, and I think we’ve done it. And as we like to say at Les Baer Custom: “If you don’t want to take our word for it, ask the guys who know.” In this case, the guys who know best are the legions of gun writers and editors who have put our guns through their paces and found them to be absolutely the best shooting, most accurate and reliable firearms anywhere.
What have been our top sellers during the past year? Virtually all models of our 1911 pistols and our spectacular AR .223 rifles are selling well across the board. Our Thunder Ranch 1911 pistols and rifles -- built in cooperation with Clint Smith, director of America's premier training facility -- continued to generate loads of excitement. But, so did our Monolith pistols with the extra long dust covers…our tried and true Premier II and Concept pistols…our 1911 competition pistols…and our full line of Ultimate AR .223 rifles, led by our pacesetting Super Varmint Model.
- Two exciting new models of our world-renowned Thunder Ranch 1911 pistol;
- Thunder Ranch Matched rifle and pistol sets with matching serial numbers;
- Several state of the art new accessory items for 1911 pistols and AR .223 rifles;
- A new all-steel .38 Super Custom Carry model in Commanche length;
- And, perhaps the most exciting news is that we’re now offering our two top rifle models in the new, super high performance .204 Ruger caliber. To our knowledge, our AR .223 rifles are the first AR-style rifles to be available in that hot new caliber. And it bears repeating that, because of our continued reputation for quality, reliability and accuracy, Les Baer Custom is still the choice of America’s top shooting professionals, including Clint and Heidi Smith at Thunder Ranch…longtime competitor, trainer and law enforcement professional, Mike Dalton…and several other Master class shooters including:
- Rick Castelow from Murfeesboro, Tennessee - Rick is a longtime, well known IPSC competitor.
- Rick DeGregorio from Warwick, Rhode Island – Rick is a Master Shooter and a top competitor whose blazing speed has made him a major contender at every practical shooting match he enters.
