    Para Limited Edition 1911

    Has anyone had any experience dealing with Para-Ordinance's customer service? I am considering the Limited Edition 1911 (@ Bud's) and know ZERO about the company. Any issues (in general) with the guns themselves? Any dealings with customer service? Thanks!

    I had to deal with Para's customer service due to a cracked slide. They took care of the problem, but it took forever. Here is a link to the thread. http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...ked-slide.html

    Can't really say where I stand with Para now. I am attracted to a few of there models but think I'd rather spend the money on a Springfield.

    Thanks! I read the events from last year....don't quite know why it took so long to pull a slide from inventory & send it. Nonetheless, It's between the Para, Springfield and a full-sized Taurus. Whatever I buy might relegate my 5" RIA to back-up status. I'm glad your issue was finally resolved. Any issues since?

    No issues since the cracked slide. I will admit that the incident left me with a bad taste and ever since, the Slim Hawg is not carried and sees limited range time.

    I don't blame you! Once your confidence is shaken, it's hard to overcome. I'm still thinking about which 1911 to buy (assuming I sell my Witness) - Taurus 1911 or Para Ltd. Your input (and experience) is greatly appreciated!

    If you decide to go with a Para, opt for a stainless version as their other finishes have been know to have some issues. Para may have taken care of this but I have no recent experience.

    The Taurus looks like a nice 1911, but personally, I would go with a Springfield!

    sniper58, you have a pm.

    I have a full size 1911 Para PXT and love it. Shoots well/accurately and, in six months, I have had no FTF's, FTE's and no FRB's. I highly recommend the Para.
