Les Baer triggers

Post by Sheriff1962 on 9/2/2018, 9:40 am

I would like an opinion on LES BAER triggers .  The 2 Les B Baer pistols  I own , I like very much due to their accuracy and reliability.   However the triggers took some time to get used to.

I have 4 LB's, the triggers were all great, smooth and broke like a glass rod.  I thought there couldn't be anything better, until I shot a roll trigger.  Every 1911 I own that is used for Bullseye now has a roll trigger.

I think its a bit of a crap shoot. My first 1911 was a LB Concept III, was a decent trigger but then I picked up a LB wadcutter used and it had a much better trigger. I've also gone to all roll triggers, at least a bit of roll.

A roll trigger has a bit of consistent smooth movement before it breaks. Image creep but consistent every time and smoothed out.

The trigger does not "break".  The sear and hammer hooks have slightly different geometry, so the trigger travels until the gun goes off.  Some people describe it as creep on ball bearings - extremely smooth.  The length of the roll can be changed, trigger weight is still set the same way.

I describe a roll and the ability to walk the sear off the hammer hooks and feel nothing but the smoothness of that movement and travel

I think of LB triggers as liability triggers. 3.5# doesn’t always = 3.5#
In other words just because it breaks at 3.5# doesn’t mean it’s a good trigger. They take longer to go bang. The hammer they use will typically give you a crisp trigger every time.
