When two big names join forces, you can expect great things. Les Baer Custom is well-known for their high-performance 1911s, and when Clint Smith, director of Thunder Ranch, wanted something special to celebrate their 25th anniversary—he felt it was only natural to work with Les Baer Custom with a special limited edition pistol.
