The Best Of Les Baer Custom



SKU: MR-LB2023 Category:


Special Print Edition For Les Baer Custom Fans Everywhere!

Les Baer Custom didn’t happen overnight — or easily — but grew from a foundation of sheer hard work and a personal quest by Les for the very best he could offer.

Much of the journey was documented in the pages of American Handgunner and GUNS Magazine. From a close look at the .45 pistol built for the FBI’s Elite Hostage Rescue Team, and the AR Match .308 Powerhose rifle to Les Baer’s American Handgunner 1911 Special Edition pistol, the exquisitely crafted guns have been well documeted for a generation of enthusiasts.

Today, the Les Baer Custom shop has a world-wide reputation of performance and excellence. They supply law enforcement, military units,
competitors or simply anyone demanding distinction and quality in their personal guns with the best 1911s in existence.

This collection is a tribute to Les Baer and his extraordinary craftsmanship.

The book includes 173 full color interior pages covering content from 1995 to 2023.
