Anyone had experience with Les Baer PII 9MM? Accuracy ? Reliability? Overall opinion ? Thank You.

IN 2000 I BOUGHT A LES BAER 6" PPC GUN IN 9MM, 1.5" STATED, THE BEST I GOT WAS 5.5" FROM THE RR .  I WOULDN'T BUY IT. I WAS THAN TURNED ONTO ROCK RIVER ARMS. I HAVE 4 OF THEIR 1911'S IN 9MM. 3 PPC GUNS AND 1 BULLSEYE WAD CUTTER. ALL HOLD 1.5" AT 50YDS EASILY. I  HAVE RR THEM MYSELF. JP

Not a 9MM but I have 2 Premier II's in 45.  one was accurate (<2" @ 50yds) out of the box and the other wasn't (>3" @ 25yds).  I tried a ton of different loads in that 2nd gun and nothing worked.  All have functioned well after the initial 500 round break in. One of my buddies had one that was so tight we couldn't get the slide to move without a "bench nudge".  I "polished" the rails with a lapping tool and some J-B Bore Bright, and it's worked great ever since.  I'm not sure why LB sends them out so tight.

Nowadays I think it's kind of a crapshoot with LB, beside the 2 PII's I also have a LB Ball and Wad guns all 4 are 45's.  So 4 guns and 3 were good/very good, one was mediocre.  I think they are an OK value but the variation has turned me off some.

Bottom line is I would never wait to have one built for me there are better options for the same or slightly more $.  Would I buy a new one off the shelf for a better than list price, maybe.

I have two LB in 45.  Looking at a 9mm. If it shoots under 3" with duty ammo at 50 yards. . ( 147HST) I will be happy.
My 952 does it all the time

All I’ve seen on their site is .45’s. Is this a custom job that they door a stock item that doesn’t show on their website?

Sorry for the hi-jack but I’ve been very interested in the possibility of a 9mm Rock River Arms.

AS FAR AS THE 147GR AMMO. I SHOT A LOT OF THAT IN PPC AT 50YDS. THE WINCHESTER RA9T WAS THE MOST ACCURATE, THE FEDERAL 147GR HYDRA-SHOK WAS 2ND.

THE BEST 147GR BULLET BY FAR WAS THE HORNADY XTP , IT IS A BOAT TAIL BULLET. 4.2GR OF VV330 WAS TOP. FOLLOWED BY 4.0GR OF WSF .  HORNADY 147GR BALL BULLET IS A BOAT TAIL ALSO BUT CANT HOLD A CANDLE TO THE XTP AT 50. WHEN LOADING OUR OWN WE SHOT THE XTP AT 50 AND THE BALL FOR THE SHORT LINE. NO FOULING ISSUES, SAME POWDER AND LOAD ALONG WITH SAME JACKET MATERIAL. JP

I contacted Rock River several months ago asking about 9mm pistols.  They said they have no plans to build any at this time.  That said, I'm sending out a Dan Wesson for some work to turn that into an accurate shooter.
