I own a para it's a great shooter, can't lie almost never carry it (too big mines full sized) any gun over about 6.5 starts to dig into me somehwere or another...
they have a proprietory extractor so not all 1911 parts are interchangable..never had a misfire or fail to feed with any ammo if it was smaller would carry with confidence, but i have to many other slightly smaller options..woould recommend a para to anyone looking for a high quality made in america gun..
The stainless finish is the way to go. The paracoat (or whatever the heck they call it) finish is garbage. My para made it about 1 day before I started seeing holster wear.
I have an LDA CCO (officer frame, 4.25" barrel) and its been good, although i've only put about 400 rounds through it. Its reliable so far, and pretty accurate. I really like the Para, but wouldnt pay $1300 for that. Have you priced them to see what they go for in the real world? MSRP can be optimistic sometimes :yup:
