Anyone have any experience with the Les Bear AR15's? I know he makes one heck of a 1911, however never heard much about his AR's. What platform does he use, colt, rem..?

I am thinking of picking up a Les Baer Patrolman from a friend.


Thanks for any info.

FWIW, I've looked at some of their rifles, and the fit and finish is second to none, all the parts are top notch (I know barrels are in house, rest of parts I dunno)

I dunno if I would get one though unless its at an exceptional price point, I feel they are overpriced, if I were spending that money I would be talking to Larue or Noveske.

Yeah, the fit and finish does appear top notch. The rifle has less than 1k through it and the owner wants 1500.

Would I tighter fitting AR like this be more fussy to ammo cleanings?

While I'm sure this is a fine carbine, there are less costly choices for a patrol rifle that provide better specs.

IIRC, some Baer's are .223 only.

I would not buy an ar from a company that recommends putting the castle nut on backwards and builds their ar this way, that just shows me they have no idea of what they are doing.

I have one and it's one of the best rifles I own very accurate. I like there new 308 semi rifle.
