Anyone have any experience with the Baer Extreme Tactical Pistol? If so, please give your testimonial

I'd get it custom from Baer, not from Davidson's in order to forego the ambi-safety and to get an extra extractor, etc. (I know, I know, the special serial # is the best part, but I'll live without it :rolleyes:), but this model seems to have everything a combat gun needs:
  • Magwell
  • Combat sights
  • Tough finish
  • Full size grips
  • Solid trigger
  • It's a lot cheaper than an SRP in the same configuration

Looks like a concept 6 ... except with solid trigger and magwell

Yeah, you're right it does. That's yet another reason why I wouldn't order it from Davidson's, I'd be paying for the serial number and that's about it.

Kyle,

That gun was commissioned by Davidsons a few years back. It's never been in the Baer catalog. It's a fine gun and I've recently seen several popping up as NIB and slightly used at pretty good prices. If you can snag one, giddy-up. No reason not to.

As Les consolidates his distributor base, I look for more of these projects to emerge.

Here's an update:
The following is an Email I recieved from Baer this afternoon:

I have put together a pistol close to the Extreme Tactical it would be as follows:

Concept VI $1840.00
Install night sights front & rear 85.00
Install full length guide rod & plug 45.00
Install 2-PC M/S Housing Mag-Guide 215.00
Round complete pistol for tactical carry 70.00
Install single sided safety N/C
(1) Tunded & polished extractor 42.00
(1) Recoil Spring 18.5# 6.00
(1) Firing Pin Spring 5.00
Total: $2036.00


Get rid of the FLGR and I'd be left with $1,991. Not bad, definately an option for me.

Kyle,

Do yourself a favor and call our friend, John, at ProLoad Distributors, 208-772-2339 and watch the money fly back into your wallet. He's a great guy, extraordinarily knowledgable and will hook you up. Tell him I sent you. After a 20min tirade on what a bastid I am, he will take VERY good care of you :wink:.

Honestly, you can't do better.

Great, will do! Just a couple of questions:
1) Are his prices even better than George at Gunslingers'?
2) Can I get it built to my specs, or do I have to take a stock gun?

I've never dealt with Gunslingers, but John is hard to beat.

Yes, you can get it built to your specifications (within reason).

I've never heard a single negative word said about dealing with George Talia. I consider him the go-to guy on Nighthawk Custom.

Same however, goes for John, who is the go-to guy for Baers. He's one of those, "gotta know this guy", guys.

+1 what OD* said. No gold parts. No french borders. No changes after 30 days. :biggrin:

Another plug for John at Proload. He was able to get me a Concept VII built to my specs for a great price, but in 8 weeks! Our timing was perfect as Baer took a C VII that was already in the build process & modified to my specs so that helped on the delivery time.

Go for it!

I just got another email from LB that states that the Concept VI is actually $1,840. Apparently they accidentally quoted me from an old price sheet. No big deal, though.

Do yourself a huge favor Kyle, call John, you won't find anybody with as many Baers IN stock.

For myself on carry guns I don't use a FLGR, but that's just me. I have them on my play weapons.
