WTS: If you missed my first Les Baer Package for sale... SOLD

Post by Chuck26287 on 1/13/2017, 7:34 pm

No, I'm not running a Les Baer for sale scam.  My father and I have shot Bullseye together for a few years, and we're both ready to try rifles for a bit, and have pretty much finished our formal competition in conventional pistol.  We shot different guns for .22 cal and centerfire, but our .45 setups were almost identical.  We both loved our Les Baer wad guns.  I listed mine as a complete package a week or two ago on this Bullseye specific forum and it sold to the first inquiry on the day it was posted.  He listed his on an Indiana general gun forum in hopes of a local face to face sale, but these guns are just more costly than the average gun joe will spend if they're not seriously into Bullseye shooting.  So, he asked me if I would list it for him like I did mine.  I don't see anything in the guidelines against listing it for someone else, but if I'm wrong, and that is a violation of some sort, someone let me know, and I'll tell him he has to set up his own account to list it.  For now, I'll post his package, which is not identical, but very similar to the one I listed.  I will also include my name and email, as well as his.  If you're interested, please post here, and follow that with an email directly to him.  It will be my father who commits the package for a sale, not me.

Here is what he has:

Les Baer .45acp Wadcutter Bullseye Package

Les Baer Custom 1911 Bullseye Wadcutter Pistol, .45 ACP, 5 in BBL, with frame mounted scope rail and 2 magazines.  ($2180.00)

Factory trigger was upgraded/replaced with a KC Kustom "Battle Axe" roll trigger.  VERY nice and smooth roll.  ($190.00)

UltraDot Matchot II red dot optics.  ($230.00)

Right hand adjustable Nill Griffe custom grips (medium/average hand size).  ($265.00)

Original box with extras pictured.

$2175.00 for the package, shipped and insured for purchase value, from our FFL to yours, pending verification from your FFL there are no restrictions affecting the sale to your state.  If in Indiana, will drive a moderate distance within central Indiana for a face-to-face if desired, but buyer must sign a bill of sale documenting both an IN Driver's License and LTCH.

My father's contact info:  Budd Bennett, bennett-charles@att.net

My contact info:  Chuck Bennett, chuck26287@att.net (Again, I suggest going directly to my father with any interest, as he will commit for any sale.)

Ransom Rest test results

Post by Chuck26287 on 3/25/2017, 7:52 pm

Someone had asked if we had a sample of a 50 yard group from this Les Baer wadgun.  Made it to the range today to setup and shoot a Ransom Rest test to show the group it's capable of at 50 yards, and figured I'd update it here as well when sending him the results.  I am also attaching my load spec sheet for the load used.  These were the match rounds we competed with.  Keep in mind the load spec sheet is the data from load development on MY Les Baer wadgun, NOT this one.  My wadgun came with a factory test target showing a 1.72" group.  Using my gun, I tuned the load until I got it better than the factory, at a 1.61" group.  Then, we figured the two Les Baers were almost identical, so while they probably wouldn't shoot exactly the same, they'd be close enough that we wouldn't have to have two different competition loads.  While we did test shoot to check pressure signs in my father's gun during the load development, we didn't run groups on the Ransom Rest with it.  Running those Ransom Rest groups today show we didn't miss shooting identically by more than about 0.003", as today's group made about 1.64" at 50 yards.  Guess these Les Baer's have earned their reputation.

Also note The Ransom Rest group shot from today has no chronograph data.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's probably gonna be pretty close to the same in both guns as well.

And, it's a shame, but I should put a disclaimer... PLEASE DO NOT just use this load data as you see it here.  It is provided as a reference to a load that was worked up from a safe starting point and watching for pressure indications as the load was developed and tested.  If you want to try this particular load, please develop it in your own equipment by starting lower and working up to it while following standard safe handloading practices and procedures.  This data is provided FOR REFERENCE PURPOSES ONLY.
