A Message From Les Baer Sr.

Dear Customer:

For more than a century, John Browning's venerable 1911 pistol has been one of America's and the world's most popular handguns. For almost four decades, Les Baer Custom has combined old world craftsmanship with state-of-the-art, high tech
engineering methods to design and produce custom built, American made 1911 pistols that keep the iconic 1911 at the very forefront of handgun production and ownership.

There's no secret to our success. We simply continue to innovate and to stay on top by following the same game plan that has made us a winner from the very beginning. Our precision engineered custom parts, hand fitting and assembly ensure that we are able to continue producing masterpieces of the gun maker's art. Every single 1911 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 with unerring accuracy every single time, without fail. And, with more than forty custom built 1911 models from which to choose, we have a superb custom 1911 for virtually every shooter and every purpose including law enforcement, military, personal security, target shooting and competition, and even hunting.

For 2024:

• Traditional .45 ACP is still the most popular chambering for 1911 pistols. But we also offer several models in high velocity10mm, 9mm and .38 Super, depending on the shooter's requirements.

• The tried and true Les Baer Custom Premier II© pistol is still the king of 1911 pistols. And, with 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 Premier II© models.

• 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 2024 catalog and our innovative products. Good shooting!

Thank you for your business,
