Picked it up this morning, I'm very pleased with how it turned out!

Couldn't leave well enough alone and replaced the rear Baer Combat site with a Novak wide notch.
I also had to replace the thumb safety to suit me, it appears they take a standard paddle safety and cut off the extension and on mine, it left a little to sharp of an angle on the end for my tastes. I have a few different styles of safeties laying around so I tried a couple, an original USGI and a factory Colt semi-tear drop. Both worked very positively without any hint of hammer movement, I think I'm going to go with the Colt model. That was the whole point of ordering this pistol with the features it has, I wanted a "Baer tight" *Coltesque* Government Model, IMHO, I think it captures the "feeling" quite well, I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

Many sincere thanks to Les Baer and the employees at Baer Custom, and a special thanks to Crazy John @ Proload.com for working diligently with me on this project, thanks Mi Amigo!.

With the USGI safety;


And it's final incarnation (I think ;))

Awesome, Dan. There's something about the simplicity and balance of the "retro" look.

Yep,that's old-school. :shades:
Yes it is. :biglaugh:

We tried to talk Baer into standard dovetail cut on the rear of the slide so I could use a Yost retro rear sight, couldn't get him to do it though. :bawling:

OD,
Is that 50 yard group one that you fired, or was it the test group from the factory? If it is indeed the factory group, have you shot her yet? If so, please tell us how awesome it is :biggrin:
