    Para Ordnance GI Expert - Good or Not ??

    I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with this weapon ? Pros and cons, . How does it stack up against it's competition / The ads make it sound great, but I don't know anyone who has one. I've been circling the idea or one for a couple of weeks now.

    Look into a Springer 1911. I have a Mil-spec, and I wouldn't think twice about another type or company. Sure there are "dressed-up models, but I'm a minimalist at heart. My Military background also brought me to this type/model. Shoots awesome, and it's reliable.. From what it seems the price points are very similar.. Bottom line though get a pistol that you like though.. Good luck!

    Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..

    Para has a HUGE add for the gun on the back cover of last months Shotgun News. It looks as though its a good buy. I'd like to hear some more about it. Every Para I have come in contact with has been a good gun.
    God Bless America!!

    It's a new gun for 2009. Nobody has one yet. It seems like a good gun at a good price, but I don't like to buy anything too new.

    Paratrooper likes PARA

    Heard GREAT things about Para(which moved their operation from Canada to NC,USA)..so I think the Expert should be a fine pistol. A "refined" basic Gov't Model is all anybody needs in the 1911 platform(good trigger,sights,and the ability to cahmber HP's). Give it a "look see". Good luck.
