Dear Customer:

After more than a quarter-century, Les Baer Custom is still acknowledged as the leader in
the development of precision built custom firearms that simply outperform any other
guns in their product categories. The professionals who depend on firearms to earn their
livelihood ... the cops, tactical operators, military special ops guys, firearms trainers and
competitors ... those are the guys who demand the best performance and understand
real value. They're the guys who choose firearms built by Les Baer Custom.

How do we continue to earn praise from the world's most discriminating shooters? First,
of course, there's our uncompromising quality. If it's not the best, it won't carry our
name. It's just that simple.

Then there's our passion for constant innovation, a spirit that has helped us stay ahead of
the curve in the continuing evolution of the world's best shooting 1911 pistols and AR
rifles. This year, we have set the stakes even higher with the introduction of several brand
new products which we feel sure will quickly become the class of the custom firearms
business, including:

• A brand new Centennial Model 1911 that commemorates the 100th anniversary of
John Browning's most stellar pistol (see page 17);

• Our new Ultimate Tactical Carry Pistol, a no-nonsense self defense or duty pistol
that's equipped exactly as a tactical carry pistol should be (see page 15);

• A special 1911 that carries the name and endorsement of Shooting USA, the
groundbreaking television show that has done so much to promote the sport and
practical side of shooting (see page 16);

• Our 1911 duty/defense pistol that pays tribute to Les Baer's lifelong love for high
performance muscle cars (see the new Boss 1911 on page 10);

• Our .308 Semi-Auto Rifle, the most exciting .308 rifle in many, many years (for full
information see page 53)

• And finally, Les Baer Custom's Bolt Action Tactical Rifles which have already caused a
stir in the tactical community.

Enjoy our 2011 catalog and enjoy our innovative products.

Thank you for your business,

Les Baer Sr.
Member American Handgunner 100 Club

Our superior match frames are much more than just the foundation on which we build
our guns -- they're the primary building block on which our business and our reputation
have been built, as well.

No 1911 frames anywhere compare to Baer frames. That's why they've become the
hands-down favorites of so many other custom gunsmiths. We hold the tightest
tolerances in the industry to guarantee consistency. We can guarantee that consistency
because we do all the machining ourselves on our own CNC equipment. And all our
frames come standard with beveled mag wells.

Note: Stainless steel frames are also available, as well as reduced Commanche" and
“Stinger” size frames. All Baer frames are available separately or paired with Baer slides,
individually hand fitted for the best possible fit.

Baer 1911 slides have set the standard for premium quality components. They're
quality engineered with features no other 1911 slides can match:

• Precision machined from extremely high quality steel;
• Heat treated to 40 R.C.;
• Precision machined on our own state of the art CNC equipment after heat treating
to prevent warpage

• Rail dimensions machined to ultra-precise, uniform specifications;
• Barrel channel is precision bored;
• Slides have 9mm firing pin holes to keep primer flow to a minimum;
• The recoil plug is machined all the way through, so there's no more drilling or
reaming required to install reverse recoil plugs;

• Precision slide serrations on rear;
• Lowered ejection port;
• Cocking serrations on front of slide (optional on Commanche length slides)

Baer slides are available in the following variations and options:
• Machined steel or stainless steel;
• Standard 1911 length or shortened Commanche length;
• With or without cut for LBC low mount rear sight with hidden rear leaf;
• With double serrations, with rear serrations only or with no serrations.
• Flat bottom double serrated Monolith slide;
• Calibers: 9mm, .38 Super, 10mm, 40 S&W or .45 ACP. (Stainless slides and
Commanche slides in .45 ACP only)

���) �O *# ��

In a handgun, one extra inch of length means more than just being one inch closer
to your target. It means dramatically increased velocity.

Les Baer Custom offers the best six-inch 1911 slides on the market. That's six
inches long without compensators! Like all Baer components these match
grade slides are precision machined from top grade steel. They're not
welded; they're all one-piece construction. What a great edge for a
USPSA Limited Class gun, a Bullseye Wadcutter gun, or for any .45
that's expected to deliver peak performance and accuracy. 6" slides
are also available in 9mm and .38 Super.

Whether you're building or upgrading a 1911, it will only be as accurate as the
barrel. Our match grade 1911 barrels are the best on the market. They're made
from 4350 steel. All critical areas are oversized for proper fitting. The rear locking
lug is also slightly oversized to allow you to obtain a central firing pin hit. And the
smoothness and consistency of the bores is really remarkable. Several options

• Baer 41/4" N.M. Commanche Barrel, .45 ACP
• Baer 41/4" N.M. Commanche Barrel, .45 ACP (Supported)

Only 500 Of These 1/25th Scale Classic Muscle Cars Are Available.

The original 429 Boss Mustangs were and still are a
legend among American muscle cars. Only 500 of
these heavy hitters were built in 1970 and they all
featured the blue crescent or Hemi-design heads that
made them so distinctive. These scale model collec-
tors’ cars were built by 1st Gear in Peosta, Iowa, using
one of Les Baer’s own Boss 429s to make all the prints and engineering drawings.
No surprise, then, that these replicas look just like Les Baer’s 429, right down to the
Grabber Green exterior color with black interior, of which only 43 were built in 1970.
Les’ was built at Dearborn, Michigan where it was assigned Kar Kraft number KK 2337.

It’s equipped with:
• Black Clarion Bucket Seats
• 3:91 Traction Lok Axle
• Four Speed Close Ratio Top Loader Drag-Pak
• Collapsible Spare
• Rim Blow Deluxe Steering Wheel
• Console
• Power Disc Front Brakes
• Décor Group
• Tachometer
• Competition Suspension
• Front Air Spoiler
• Functional Hood Scoop
• Trunk Mounted Battery

The highly detailed replicas feature:
• Opening Hood, Trunk And Doors
• Classic Boss 429 Engine
• Poseably Front Wheels
• Detailed Interior
• Detailed Undercarriage

If you admire fine American muscle
cars, this Boss 429 is a must-have for
your collection. If you buy one of Les
Baer Custom’s new Boss 1911 pistols,

you really need to complete the
package with one of these incredibly

detailed replicas.
