Les Bear?

I know some members have them, I assume you love them.

I saw, fondled, held, drooled over one today at the LGS where I had the Detonics coated. It was really nice, was surprised when I saw the price it was not out of sight expensive.
In the $2,300 range, I expected it to be more like 3 grand.

Les Bear Concept VIII in Stainless, 4 1/2 barrel, night sights with cocking edge.

Anyone own this model or tell me about the LB you have?

I have a Les Baer Commanche with 4.25" barrel. Not stainless, but a great gun. No problems with mine and reasonable for the price. Additionally customer service is terrific. Not unusual for Les himself to return a call to a customer. Good luck with your decision!

Thanks Chief, your response is exactly what I've been hearing/reading.
Let it be known I can't just walk in the LGS and buy one I will have to save up!!
I have been looking at the Dan Wesson's but think Les
Bear's may be a little nicer. IMO

Was shooting with a friend recently with a new Dan Wesson I think Valor model 9MM and it performed flawless out of the box. I was very impressed, very little felt recoil even though I have several 9MM 1911s.

From everything I have read about a Baer they are probably worth the money. I have been excited just to upgrade to a Sig and then the Kimber.

Well you know I may never buy a Les Bear but who knows, can't hurt to dream.
