Close but no, it's the Ultimate Tactical Carry. It's basically a Thunder Ranch without the TRS markings and sells for a $100 less. I like the solid trigger and lack of ambi safety. I think the FCS can be omitted on all their guns. It's supposed to be delivered Mon. but the gun shop that's doing the transfer is closed Mon and Tues. So I get to wait till Weds.

Sorry didn't even see your post. (posted at the same time) As I said above that's what it is.

Picked up the Les Baer UTC a little while ago. I'm really really impressed with it! I was worried about the tightness people talk about. It's only when it's in full lock up it's really tight. It feels like your pulling the slide back with hammer up even though it's cocked back. It rides extremely smooth on the rails. It's supposed to be a 4lb trigger, it feels closer to 3.5lb. My S.A. Loaded breaks at just under 4lbs and this one feels lighter. (I gave my trigger pull scale to Pete @ theARMORYchannel, so I got to get another one) The safety is a bit stiff, I figure it will loosen with use. I'm not to sure about the slim grips. I'm going to shoot it first before I see about changing them out though.

Shot thin grips on a trs, liked them, but honestly i liked slim and full and had no real preference. Either would make me happy.

i put ultra thin grips on my Kimber and i love the way it feels...probably not the most pratical for heavey duty shooting but for normal day at the range kind of stuff it rocks.

The grips are the same as the TRS, just don't have the logo.

I'm just not used to them. They are basically almost smooth. If they were a little coarser, I'd probably like them a little better. Even though the 30 lpi gives a good hold. I'm worried when my start sweating.

I'm going to really try to take it out this weekend.

That's how i'd prefer it, never liked outside logos. The checkering on the front ad back strap is good enough to get a great grip, the trs was the best 1911 i've shot. The trigger was about 4 pounds, just so smooth it feels lighter, but easy to control.

I think that's reason Baer introduced the UTC, not everybody cares to have TRS on their guns. The trigger on mine may actually be 4lbs, just a little bit cleaner or smoother than my Loaded.

What I like most about the UTC and TRS vs some of the other Baer's. They have the solid trigger vs the common 3-hole and no ambi safety.
