Les Baer Premier II Super-Tac 45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

While we essentially evaluated this handgun for self-defense, be assured it would be ideal for all target shooting where finest accuracy is required. Both the Baer and Volkmann would serve the NRA bull’s-eye shooter better than the Wilson CQB because of their adjustable sights. We liked it a lot, but felt the extra cost of deburring, adding night sights, and its special finish were somewhat unjustified. We’d buy either the standard Premier II or the Baer Thunder Ranch Special at $1990.

Like the Volkmann, the Baer had trouble feeding one of the Cor-Bon 230-grain JHP loads. That won’t be a problem if you test your ammo. If you have to shoot nothing but Cor-Bon, you can get the gun set up to feed it perfectly, either by Baer or another suitable gunsmith.
The arrow points to the ambidextrous safety lever biting into our trigger-finger’s knuckle. After a while, this became very annoying. It can be avoided by taking a file to it.
