Question Les Baer Premier II vs SIG 226 X5 Tactical

Want a nice range gun.

Different directions to go...

Les Baer Premier II

http://www.lesbaer.com/duty.html

(or other Les Baer)

SIG 226 X5 Tactical

http://www.sigarms.com/Products/Show...&productid=144

My current gun is a HK P2000SK 9mm I use for carry.

It would be nice to own a nice 1911.

The 226 X5 Tactical is in 9mm which is what I have and I had a P229 and like the quality of SIG if ya get a good example.

The LB PII and 226 X5 Tac are the same price, just under $1400.

I have smallish hands- so the 1911 would be a better grip, but the 226 isn't bad.

Hmmmm....

What say you folks?

Les Baer

Yes the Baer for sure. I have 1 AR from them and a custom carry full size. You can't go wrong as lonmg as you break it in before using it to defend yourself.

Is the Baer used? $1400 sounds pretty cheap since they usually go for about 1700-1800USD.

My new Concept II (5") arrived yesterday. It was $1340 plus shipping. Great gun and price.

Les must be giving dealers a break these days. In the past you almost always paid list for them. Wonder if he is trying to lighten the U-Haul out of Illinois...

List for the C II is $1570.00. Pretty good price you got there. I am sure you will love it. I have an X-Treme Tacitcal and I love it.
