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

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?
I don't know much about Para's but, that definitely looks aftermarket.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
I agree with JD... sure looks like an aftermarket barrel & bushing...

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.

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...
