I'd choose the Baer over the Colt every time. Not to take away from the Colt, but mass production vs semi-custom is an easy choice for me.

So, spending $200 dollars more for the Les is better even though it does not have a rail? Hmm, I will say at those prices, the Colt is at its max msrp and $100-150 over its average cost. The Les's msrp is around $1900, so $400 under msrp, and still $200 under retail. Even though it costs more, the Les is probably a better deal.

Now I just need Canebreak to come out and say to avoid the Colt and go with the Baer.

I don't know the reason, but about all I've seen locally or on line lately has been the New Agent. Maybe Colt just runs one model at a time & it happens to be it's turn, or maybe these are hanging around because they don't sell as well as other models.

I've had my eyes open for 3 Colt 1911s plus the new Mustang & haven't found any of them. Sadly, I've come across a couple other pistols, so spent my $$$. If the Colts were to show up now, I'd have to be begging the money off my wife & she charges horrible interest!
