Can someone clarify for me the situation of the p14-45?
Any holster for a 1911 will fit the para right?
Grips are not interchangeable because of thickness?
Laser grips don't work on the double stack?
What about internal parts? Are they the same?
1) So far, yes. The top end is the same as the "standard" 1911.
2) Not particularly true. Whether or not other grips fit will depend on the screw spacing. As thick as the P14-45 is already, it is probably not wise to make it thicker.
3) True, so far, but only because the manufacturers have not had enough from Para owners to make it profitable to make a grip laser for the double stack Paras.
4) Are they the same as what? The top end is pretty much the same as the "standard" 1911, as far as barrel bushings, springs, links, etc.
