Factory New In Box Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special 45 acp

The new Les Baer CustomThunder Ranch 1911 is a serious, no-nonsense self-defense pistol conceived by Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, one of the premier training facilities dedicated to teaching people how to survive in a tough, unfriendly world. Clint Smith cares about good guns and he's concerned that his students are equipped with reliable, accurate guns they might one day have to trust with their lives. That's why Clint Smith approached Les Baer about developing a dependable, combat-proven 1911 with which he and his students could feel completely confident. So, Clint Smith specified the features he wanted and Les Baer built it. The result is a distinctive yet practical 1911 that's ideal for personal defense and a source of price for the owner.

Wow! This gun is very tight and accurate out of the box. Racking the slide back to unlock the barrel from the slide takes considerable effort. I own a dozen or so 1911 style pistols and this is one of my most accurate out of the box. The slim grips make a big difference in handling and comfort as well as control for those with small-medium sized hands like myself. Yes, as expected there have been some minor malfunctions but no FTE or FTF's, with factory ammunition in the 1st 150 rounds fired thus far. I have read that it will take at least 500-1000 rounds just to break it in. I can't wait!

Great pistol! I put well over 2k rounds down range and only one hiccup on round 14 (probably the ammo). This gun is amazing, don't think you'll find anything better than a Baer. Completely reliable! I had another high end 1911 a few years ago from another maker and it was a great shooter, when it shot.
Personally I love the no frills=great gun mentality of Les Baers not stuff other pistol smiths want to sell you that does nothing for reliability or accuracy. I.E. recoil buffers, full length guide rods etc.
The TRS is the end all be all for me! Okay, well, I may end up getting the SRP also.

Great pistol! 250 rounds down range and only one hiccup on round 98, didn't chamber that round, was sticking straight up in the LB magazine. Since that no issues, great gun.
Bud's gives great customer service and shipped this FAST!

Les builds great pistols. I have this pistol in hard chrome and reaaly like it. I don't have to worry about it rusting in the holster.
It was pretty tight when I first got it but it has loosened up from shooting it. Some call it a break in period. I call it fun.
It is super accurate and handles quite well.
If I could have one of every model I would.
An excellent addition for anyone wanting a higher end 1911.
