How much $ and where to look for used LB 1911s?

How much would a 10 or 20 year old lower spec (PII?) Les Baer 1911 go for in the following conditions:

1. Excellent condition
2. Very good condition
3. Good condition

Besides Gunbroker, where are good places to look for a used one?

Last I looked there were a couple listed on Texas Gun Trader. I purchased one last year from that site. I paid 1600 for a 2015-2016 (judging by the serial #) in like new condition ,with box and all original paper work. Transaction was in person.

Prices are all over the place, but generally down on used Baers right now. That said, a 20 year old (or older) Baer in pristine condition may command a premium over a 10 year old gun. I've seen the prices on a used PII run anywhere from $1300-$2k recently.

You don't have to live in Texas to look at the site. His location is listed as southwest USA. I often hear people say Texas is in the southwest. Gun Trader is also in other states. But thanks for letting me know he is not in Texas, bro!

Nor do you have to live in Texas to buy a gun from him.

I bought my "previously enjoyed" LB PII on Armslist in my state. Totally happy with the purchase.
