A Message From Les Baer Sr.

Dear Customer:

In so many ways, 2020 and 2021 have been a trial for all of us. Challenges to our health and welfare, our freedoms, our way of life, and the way we do business. None of us has escaped unscathed. All the more reason to move into the future with partners who have continued to demonstrate their devotion to time-honored business practices like customer loyalty, innovation, unmatched skill sets, and product performance that continues to set standards of excellence year in and year out.

For more than a quarter century, Les Baer Custom has been providing discriminating shooters with the finest custom 1911 handguns available anywhere on the planet. Of course, it’s easy to make that claim, but we are quite confident that we can back it up. By combining state-of-the-art, precision engineered custom parts with old world craftsmanship and unmatched attention to detail, we 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 importance of reliable firearms performance.

In 2022, Les Baer Custom continues to lead the way in the design and development of the finest 1911-style handguns in the world, breathtaking in both their appearance and performance:

• The tried and true Les Baer Custom Premier I© pistol is still the king of 1911 pistols. And, with all its’ variations, it’s still not only the flagship of our 1911 line, it also 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 IIc models available from Les Baer Custom.

• Although traditional .45 ACP is still the most popular chambering for 1911 pistols, our decision to broaden our offering of several optional calibers in some of our high-demand models has been extremely well received. Check all the models in this catalog to review those available in optional 9mm, .38 Super, and 10mm.

• Our preeminence as superior custom 1911 builders have 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 2022 catalog and our innovative products. Good shooting!

Thank you for your business,

Les Baer Sr.
