A Message From Les Baer Sr.

Dear Customer:

Although 2020 and 2021 presented almost unimaginable challenges for us all, 2022 was a banner year for Les Baer Custom. Not only did we survive, but we flourished. Our gratitude to our business partners who worked with us. And special thanks to our loyal and devoted customers who had confidence that our time-honored business practices including innovation, unmatched skill sets, platinum level customer service, and superior product performance would continue to keep us head and shoulders above the rest of the herd.

Now, in 2023, we are prepared continue to grow, innovate, and stay on top by following the same game plan that has made us a winner for more than a quarter century. By combining state-of-the-art, precision engineered custom parts with old world craftsmanship and unmatched attention to detail, we are continuing to produce masterpieces of the gun maker's art. Every single pistol that leaves our shop is a reflection of our commitment to provide each new owner with a heritage-quality firearm that will shoot reliably and accurately every single time, without fail. Proof of that commitment to unequaled performance is the respect Les Baer pistols have earned among law enforcement officers, military special forces teams, professional competitors, and knowledgeable civilians who understand the vital importance of reliable firearms performance.

For 2023:
• Although traditional .45 ACP is still the most popular chambering for 1911 pistols, powerful, high velocity 10mm is also currently in very high demand. And Les Baer offers that 10mm chambering in several of our most popular models, as well as optional 9mm and .38 Super.

• The tried and true Les Baer Custom Premier II® pistol is still the king of 1911 pistols. And, with all its' many variations, it's still not only the flagship of our line, it continues to be the worldwide standard of excellence against which all 1911 pistols are judged. See pages 2 through 6 of this catalog for a look at all the Premier II® models available from Les Baer Custom.

• Our preeminence as superior custom 1911 builders has also led to the development of several special edition pistols in cooperation with such illustrious entities as American Handgunner Magazine, Gunsite Academy, Shooting USA, and the Kenai Special, a tribute to the State of Alaska.

Enjoy our 2023 catalog and our innovative products. Good shooting!

Thank you for your business,
Les Baer Sr.
