Video—ARTV: Les Baer Monolith Stinger Heavyweight Pistol Review

posted on August 15, 2018
If you are an admirer of custom firearms or have browsed 1911 forums online, you've probably come across the name Les Baer. Les Baer's Monolith Stinger Heavyweight pistol is a combination of two of the company's signature-style guns—the Monolith and the Stinger. This pistol contains an all stainless-steel frame that features a full-length dust cover aiding with recoil for the .45 ACP cartridge. It also has a foreshortened slide and shortened grip frame. Additional features include Rolo Night Sights, rear-slide grip serrations for assistance with the tight slide, Cocobolo stocks, and a high beavertail grip safety. And since it is a custom gun, the pistol can come in different calibers other than .45 ACP as well as different finishes including Blue or Les Baer's Dupont S finish. 







Check out this 
“Rifleman Review” video from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV, in which Joe Kurtenbach takes the gun downrange.
