Did some training with the Baer today

Shot 500 rounds through my UTC this morning. Had a blast! Did a number of drills, took video of a couple (see below). Total round count on this gun is currently 36,400.

Careful, you do not want to wear that puppy out!

Then you might have to buy a new gun.

You guys that can keep track of extended round count like that amaze me. I will go a few thousand, and then just let it go. After that I just check for parts wear or performance deterioration.

I can see where some people want to know, but it is just not that important to me. Maybe if I shot as much as some of you guys I would consider it more. But I doubt if any of the guns that I have bought over the years have more than ten or fifteen thousand rounds through them. Used guns I really can not say. But I will not buy a used gun that shows a lot of wear, in general.

Thanks guys! With the competition season put on hold because of the virus, I will probably be shooting this a lot more in training just for fun. I am excited!

The net is the CED Brass Chute. It saves a ton of time picking up brass on the range. Only downside is it doesn’t do great in the wind, even if you sandbag the frame, the net will blow out of whatever bucket you are using underneath it. But probably unavoidable for as portable as it is. And if you’re doing any kind of drill with movement, obviously the net doesn’t move with you lol.

Still looks good for that many rounds and appears to function just as well. I have had two Les Bears for several years and they both run without any problems. I consider that as a testimony to LB’s attention to detail and build quality over the years.

The finish worn from extended use speaks greater volumes than distressed finishes. Its a keeper.

Sweet looking UTC.

I really like those.



What make of magwell is that on your gun ?

I'm sure it was a must-have addition due to the type of training and competition you use the gun for. It's amazing the difference a magwell can make with reload ease.


I really like the 20lpi checkering on the UTC's mainspring housing.

I wasn't sure if you retained that same 20lpi when you went with the magwell.


I'd also like a magwell, but I want to retain the 20lpi checkering on the UTC mainspring housing.

Thanks, that's what I thought. I placed an order with LB and requested that coloring. Hopefully that's what I get.
