I read an article in "Guns&Weapons For Law Enforcment" Sept 2000 that made me curious. It stated that the "Swift Response" pistol customized by Les Baer was like a "temperamental Hollywood starlet and required lots of attention and became high maintenance and reliability headaches". Steve Nastoff was brought in to save the marriage between Les Baer and FBI. They said that "upper end parts were replaced with sturdier versions and other changes were accomplished to get the pistols running properly". It states that "stronger Wolf springs replaced the original Para Ordanance springs but it doesn't say what parts in the upper end needed replaced with sturdier parts and why. Does anyone know which parts need replaced or have any knowledge on this supject matter? I have 2 Les Baer .45s and have never needed any sturdier parts after several thousands of rounds but the article left me wondering. Sorry about the "test" subject i didn't want to type this twice.
