Les Baer Ultimate Master .45

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Though the features leading to the ultimate master's high price tag were very well-executed, several were cosmetic and did not materially affect the gun's performance. If a customer wanted the most refined street/match 1911 Possible, and was willing to pay for it, we would say to go for the Ultimate Master.

The Ultimate Master (at right) was the only gun with a checkered mainspring housing. The other guns (the Monolith Heavyweight is shown at left) had serrated housings.
Best accuracy from the Ultimate Master was this tiny one-hole group measuring 0.5 inch center-to-center with Federal 165-grain Hydra Shoks.
The Ultimate Master (left) was the only gun fitted with a magazine funnel. The other guns had standard mag wells.
