New single stack .45 choices.

Looking to pick up a fresh single stack .45

Going to be looking at Les Baer PII.

Just want to get a full size single stack .45 with all black adjustable Bomar style sights, front strap checkering and accurate. Std Classic 1911 set up

Other than Les Baer PII , what are the other contenders are worth looking at ?

Price range is more or less open . I know I would have to spend 2000-3000

Many many really nice choices in this price range, pretty much all the semi customs.

You have a lot of research to do

Don't forget GI

When you can pick up a Les Baer PII for less than 2K and get a out of the box accuracy that nobody else for the dollar can come close to, why shop.

That's a pretty pricey range toy? A SA RO with a checkered front strap and trigger job may not look as pretty but the money left over in your pocket is nice. And while your running and gunning I doubt you could shoot the difference between them. You could also find a nice used Trophy Match in the same price range as a New RO as well.

My Sig Ultra 45acp is a great little gun for the price. Shoots accurately and very reliable.

i would look at Ed Brown also if I were going top spend that kind of money. The only Knock on a Baer for me is the 30lpi checkered frontstrap. I would rather have it smooth and send it out to get 20lpi. 30 is just not aggressive enough for me. I think brown offers 20lpi or 25lpi which is a pretty good compromise.

Just a heads up, Shooters Connection is having a wicked sale on some single stacks. If you're in the market for a premium semi-custom (WC, EB) take a look.

This^^^^^^^.
It sounds like you know what you want and already know where to find it, the Baer would be an excellent choice. My Baer Boss is a terrific gun and lives up to Baer's accuracy guarantee. However, as mentioned, don't rule out Browns and Guncrafters, more great guns in your price range.

Baer PII is a very nice piece. Very tight slide to frame fit.

Precision accuracy with a Les Baer.....

If I wanted a super accurate single stack .45, I would order a Les Baer model with their 1.5" 50 yard accuracy guarantee and pay the extra $300.

However, a super accurate .45 is great, but most shooters don't have the skill to take advantage of this precision accuracy. There is no reason why a person shouldn't have a quality gun if price is no object....!

For my action shooting needs, I have guns that will shoot a 5 shot 1.5" group at 25 yards, and about double that at 50 yards. For me, that is an acceptable level, but for Master class shooters that have stiffer competition, it is best to have the most accurate gun they can afford...!
