Be patient my friend. Good things come to those who wait. Baer seems to usually be right on with delivery.

Ordered to my Gun Store December 2011, verified by Les Baer January 2012, my gunstore says end of July I will receive my Les Baer....remember I'm from the Philippines. Last I spoke to my Gun Store that, Les is shipping them as we speak to the Philippines and a few weeks Licensing ;D

Almost near yet so far.....

I'm right there with you.

I ordered a wadcutter gun mid feb and was confirmed a week later. I'm at 16 weeks. I have 500 break-in rounds ready for it and I am reloading a ton for Bullseye competition. Any week now I figure.

I odered a custom carry on February the 9th from CJ. ETA was from 18 to 20 weeks. This is week 18. Does not sound good that some of u order in december and january and still no Baers to feed. Need to hear some good news from somebody that received one early.

It might be that some of the orders were placed right after the shot show which probably got him a lot orders.

I was on another 1911 forum for those who have the sickness like I do.

They got their Baer 6 weeks ahead of schedule.

I would call but I don't want to take one smith away from the production line for one second. Just like the Milt Sparks Holsters... You'll get them when they're done makin it.

3/14/2012 is my order date. I'll probably have to wait until the beginning of August but a guy can have hope of an early production, right?? Chances are slim with the T-Chrome though, I'm sure it ads some time to production.

I also ordered another milt sparks holster the same day i ordered the custom carry. I almost forgot about the holster. It has a 20 week wait too. I have one holster from milt sparks, but is is for a four inch super carry HD Kimber. I need to get a phone from Idaho or Iowa soon. I didn't get this excited at christmas when i was a kid.

I ordered my Mono HW in early September of last year, got it in exactly 16 weeks. I guess I was lucky!

This isn't helping boys! Ordered my Commanche Heavyweight Monolith on 4/23 with Jerry...16 LONGGGG weeks 'till I get it (and I'm one of those instant gratification types). This is very hard!!

02/01/12 for me, estimated 16 to 20 weeks. I hope final count down has started on my UTC 1 1/2" package.

By the way, Im a newby here and a newby Les Baer owner.

That is exactly when I ordered mine from CJ. I was quoted 20 to 25 weeks because of the shot show! We're at 19.5 weeks right now! I ordered 5" Blued Custom Carry, no FCS, single side "tactical" safety, 1.5" package.

That was the old time . 8 months minimum. I ordered 5 pistols in March and I expect them in November or December. If you ordered today, it would be 2013 some time. Hope I'm wrong but that is what I was told by Les Baer staff.

I ordered 3 pistols 12/2012 and got them in April, that was 5 months.

It's not a big deal I can wait, just curious why the quote was for 16-18 weeks if that was not realistic? In my line of work we tell someone a delivery time even if it is not what they want to hear we meet that delivery schedule. I'd rather have been told its going to be 24 weeks and it be realistic rather than 16-18 weeks and its actually 24. Either way I'll keep patiently waiting.
