    Ever Seen One of These?

    Curious to know if anyone has seen a Para Ordnance like this one? It is a common gun but I have never seen one with a muzzle break incorporated with the barrel. Did Para put these out? If so, does anyone now the timeframe?

    If I had to guess (and I am) I'd say that's aftermarket. The bushing doesn't look factory.

    I don't know much about Para's but, that definitely looks aftermarket.

    ...to allow for a ported barrel?

    Yep, I'm in agreement with the others here. Looks aftermarket to me.

    Looks like a para warthog but I thought the warthog had a bull barrel design with no bushing... strange...
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    It looks like most of the pistols we have in Canada. Here you can not own a pistol with less then 106mm barrel unless you are "grandfathered". So many rebarrel and, now you have a legal pistol.

    That appears to be a P12-45 which predates the Warthawg in name, back then the Warthawg was the P10-45.

    Para had the P10, P12, P13 and P14-45 in the .45ACP line up, there were different model names for the .40 and 9mm guns. The P10-40 / 16-40 / P18-9 being some of the other popular guns. IIRC there was also a 15-40 and 14-40 but they were few in number.

    The older Paras were not Parakoted and were blued or stainless, had vertical cocking serrations instead of the new style grooves etc.

    Para's product line seems to change rapidly, I don't see the Nite-Tac or railed Hawg listed on their website any more and they don't offer half the models in other calibers than .45 that they used to.

    It that's a P12, the extended bbl would put it right around 4" and assp2022 pointed out, in Canada there is a bbl length requirement, it very well could be a Canadian's gun that ended up state side...

    Update, I took this gun in to where I bought it and had some new sights installed. When on of the sales guys there saw it he smiled and said “so you’re the guy that bought it”. He was looking at buying it but then saw that it was gone. I talked with him a bit and he said that he thinks this came from Para’s custom shop. Told me he had a brochure from a while back and said he saw pictures of this configuration in there. It still has me wondering tho. One thing that makes me suspect is that the barrel is not stamped with the typical .45 ACP stamp. I would think that would be there if it came from Para. You know I just hate my detail oriented self at times. Why do I care?
