Baer is highly rated & provided the DoJ FBI contract for a few high-cap custom model 1911a1 pistols for regional SWAT & HRT(Hostage Rescue Team) members in the late 1980s/1990s.
Les Baer's shop couldn't keep up with the strict contract demands for the FBI & they later switched to the regular 8rd type S-A .45acp models.
There was nothing wrong with those guns. I used one for years as one of the US Border Patrol Pistol Team guns, it would shoot 2" @ 50 yards. The FBI just did not know how to run them. Nothing wrong with the FBI either, for a bunch of lawyers and accountants.
