I am very happy with the Baer 9mm. It has been very reliable for me. To date I have had zero failures with the Baer mags. I did have three (3) fail to feeds with the Wilson ETM's. My pistol does not like them at all. The ETM springs are very stiff and I keep them loaded in hopes of relaxing the springs a bit, but so far it hasn't worked for me.So you Baer 9mm owners are overall happy with the performance and reliability of your guns?
I have to admit I am hesitant about a 9mm 1911 due to stories about reliability issues, but I do like the idea.
Why did you order a PII with a fixed combat sight? Isn't there a different model available in 9mm that comes standard with the combat sight?
Just curious, it will aid me in choosing my own 9mm Baer. Thanks for posting!
I don't have any problem with the gold bead at an indoor range. It reflects even dim light well. As for the adjustable rear sight - I've never adjusted it. It came well zeroed and I quickly figured out my holds at 10, 15, and 20 yards (where I do most of my shooting).I'm thinking that the adjustable rear with a tritium front will work best for me. I shoot indoors a lot, and I've heard that the gold beads are difficult to pick up in low light - much like fiber optic (which I do not like at all).
I don't currently own any 1911's with adjustable sights. All my Ed Brown and Nighthawk 1911's wear 10-8 rear sights, and my custom Colts have Heine Slant Pro. I've never really felt a need for adjustables, but on a range gun, I might as well give them a try.
