I really regretting selling my UTC and UTC-HC recently.
Les Baers are very unique. Les builds these guns like custom shops built them 50 years ago. LOTS of hand filing, hand fitting, and the "hardest fit" barrel to bushing and barrel to slide in the industry.
I'm glad to have this, and don't regret selling the Vickers to pay for it. Based upon how tight this gun is ... I expect it'll be a one-holer.

Mike, probably because recoil is less thereby allowing for faster and more accurate follow up shots. Also some folks just can't handle a 45. Heck, even a lot of police departments are allowing or switching from 40 to 9 because of some female and smaller statured males just can't handle the recoil of a 40. AND with all the advances in ammo that is going on the difference between 9mm, 40S&W and 45acp are getting less telling all the time.

Quick question... How'd the minor round-butting of the Wilson feel in hand?
I have XXL hands and that little wedge at the bottom of a full size 1911 gets old after a full day of shooting. Would the little trim be worth it on a full size or just go with a full Bob? I love the feel of my V-bob, but it's on a Commander length Valor, so it looks proportionally correct.
