About the first of January, I bought a Para "Slim Hawg". Shot nice out of the box, but had a very stiff magazine catch (took a pretty good slap on the bottom of the mag to get it to seat), scattered the empty brass to hell and back, and broke the extractor hook at about the 100th round.
Shipped it to Tennessee, and had it back 2 weeks later. Took it back out for the first time yesterday. Shot about 150 rounds of CCI Clazer Brass and some Remington-UMC, and saw that the mag catch has been greatly improved. No FTE's or FTF's at all. And the brass pretty well all landed in a small pile of CCI in one place with the Remington brass just a couple feet away.
Nice job, Para!
