    Lightbulb Lookin' For Feedback on the Para TAC-4 45ACP

    I'm thinkin' about this acquisition very seriously as a carry piece. Anybody have any experience on a daily basis with the ParaOrd TAC-4 as a carry weapon?

    My experience with anything Para is negative. They use a LOT of molded and metal injection molded parts. I have had slides crack, slide stops break and barrel bushings fail. They use more molded parts than ANY of the major 1911 factory guns. I would recommend anything Springfield over a Para anyday. If you are looking for a DA .45 then take a look at the CZ. If you want a SA double stack, then take a look at the Springfield XD. If you want a 1911 style double stack or high cap, then the only thing Para that I would recommend is the P-14. All of the major parts can be replaced. You can also get the Para P-14 gunsmith kit that allows you to put the P-14 hi cap frame on the 1911 top end of your choice. I just finished one of these using a Colt top end and it is a nice piece. Just my opinion.

    What about the Sig SAS?
    I don't have any experience with the Tac-4, but I really like my Black Watch Companion. I didn't like the bobbed beavertail on the carry option companion. It just felt like my hand would flow over the thing and didn't feel secure enough for my taste.
    I like the LDA trigger and the gun has been more accurate than I thought it would be.

    I had a TAC Four. Too big in the grip for me to carry concealed. Mine grouped well, centered but about 6 inches low at 50 ft. with 230 gr ammo. I liked the LDA trigger and having a manual safety as well.
    I had 5 mags I bought at time of purchase, 2 had springs that were so strong I couldn't get 13 rounds in, the other 3 would load 13 OK but then the slide wouldn't lock back on empty. The springs were all of different lengths but there didn't seem to be any relation between too strong, too weak and spring length. I put Wolff springs in and had no problems from that point on, total reliability in the next 500 rounds. As I wanted something I could carry and couldn't justify keeping it so I sold it.
