Les Baer Commanche custom .45 ACP
This 1911 features an array of custom features.  My customer is a very acute student to detail, so we created this Les Baer pistol together. This pistol features a hand fitted slide, NM barrel and a custom tuned action.  I milled one of my tuxedo stippled ribs into the top of the slide.  I hand filed the mainspring housing and contoured it into the back of the frame to help handle recoil due to my customer’s smaller hands, then stippled it in my nugget style.  Other features include: All small parts fitted, then the frame and slide vapor honed.  Les Baer beavertail grip safety, Novak ghost ring rear sight, Trijicon front sight, Greider custom trigger, all ignition parts are Ed Brown perfection series, fitted national match bushing.  Frame and slide de-horned, machined front of triggerguard and checkered 30 lpi.  Safety, slide stop, and hammer profiled, polished, and jeweled.  Custom grips made in house, border cut, then hand stippled with engraved Smith & Alexander grip screws.
