So I was in the market for a 3 inch 1911 for quite some time. Come Christmas time, I got a Para Ord. Slim-Hawg (Black) from my parents (they love me). I have shot less than 250 rounds through it during 2 different abbreviated range sessions. The day after my 2nd range session I was doing my cleaning and inspection when I noticed both of the grips had begun to crack vertically.
Well today I finally got on the phone with Para. According to the Customer Service Rep they will be ground shipped via UPS tomorrow. Let's start the clock now.......
I should have read a little more about Para here before I put that gun on the list of guns I wanted. My wife gave the list to my parents and that's how I ended up with it.
