Default Les Baer Thunder Ranch Value?

I have this Les Baer .45 I purchased about 10 years ago. I've put less than 2000 rounds through it. Probably 95% condition.
Do these have any resale value?

Hard to say because I don't see to many being sold. Best bet would be to look on Gun Broker and see what they are selling for.

Nope...

Less Baer products "expire" after 10 years so no real value...

I will pay shipping to my house for the scrap value of the metal through...

Got any Pics?

Tack

Wow you guys are showing Les Baer no love at all. 10 years ago Probably worth more than the 1i just bought. Because les himself probably made that one. My opinion the top three of all 1911s.

It was a joke on his part.

I will be happy to take it off your hands, and will be ok with paying the shipping. Other than that, you can take it to a police buy-back and get a coupon for $25.00 in groceries.

I would guess it would be worth about 85% of what you paid for it.

Let's see:
95% condition, 2000 rounds, 10 years old.

About 200 rounds per year (or two ranges sessions per year).

Yep, it sounds like something is wrong with it.

I'll give you $25 in a gift card to Chili's, a $25 gift card for gas, and $10 gift card for Dunkin' donuts to take it off of your hands.

No resale value as a complete pistol, but I could use it for parts!!!!
(just kidding)

If you wanna guess on worth, you need to post some good pics. Gotta get that drool factor going!
