Ok guys - you know I ain't an afficionado with 1911's but need to ask this. Is my Para P12.45 a series 80 or 70? I suspect an 80 but want to know for sure.

CP14.45 has kindly suggested something which improve my gun's reliabilty - namely a Wilson Bullet Proof extractor - but there are options for both series 70 and 80. Once I know will go get one from Brownells to see if it'll help - I rather think it might.

Oh my - now you're askin'

I meant to post the pic - if that helps any - otherwise I'll have to look closer. Probably need a pic from other side too.

Bud - does this pair of views help any? Or do I need to strip down more?

Chris,

Just a little FYI, Series 80 parts will work in a Series 70, but not the other way around (for the most part, a couple will).

It can come in handy Chris if you own both the Series 80s and Series 70s type pistols. If I have 80s parts on hand, such as firing pins, extractors etc., I can repair either type 1911, but if I only have Series 70 parts, I can't repair the 80s.

Good to know OD - OK one more question (heck - it's good to have all the knowledge here to draw on) ......... so, what is my Sistema 1927 classed as?? From it's SN it's a 1959 birthdate.

Chris,

Your Sistema would be a Series 70 type, so you could use either series parts in it.

(technically it's a pre-war, pre-70 type, but that's mostly collector jargon to confuse us
) :wink:
