Review for my Para Black Ops 1911, 45, 8 1. Since I already have Para Expert 45, 8 1, I thought I upgrade and order the Para Black Ops 45.

I think this has noting to do with Buds Shop, but I think Para is lowering its quality control for some reason. I have ordered Para Expert 1911 in the past from Para and the quality and the customer service was excellent.

The Para Black Ops had two issues that I didn%uFFFD%uFFFDt like. First the 8 round magazines were not original Para magazines, but an after market magazines called Check Mates. The finish wasn%uFFFD%uFFFDt quite up to standard, and it was very stiff inserting it and ejecting it. I%uFFFD%uFFFDve switch over to my Para Experts Para magazine and it was very smooth inserting and ejecting with my Para Black Ops.

Second, the Trijicon night sights were very dull, no green dots at all. So when sighting for target it%uFFFD%uFFFDs bit hard to focus since there is no way to distinguish the front to rear sight. I will replace the front sight with fiber optics soon. My other Para Expert has a green fiber optic front so it%uFFFD%uFFFDs very easy to focus the target and shoot at any time of the day with out your eyes working too hard.

Over all Para Black Ops is a great gun. I only had two issues, after market magazines, and dead green dot Trijicon sights (front and back).

I fireda around 250 rounds. It had about 10 fliers during the break in. As an amateur shooter at best I put 5 rounds with in a quarter, took the entire right side of the head off of a zombie target and shredded my other practice target. I was very pleased with it considering that was all during the break in. It had 3 FTL's I don't consider that bad at all.

This was a flawless transaction through buds and the preferred FFL. The gun was perfect right out of the box. I have owned a few 1911's before but this is by far the nicest. Thanks.

Got this as a Christmas gift to myself. I fired 480 rounds of Remington ball ammo through it in 2 days and had zero issues! It is super tight and very very smooth pistol. The grips are quite aggressive and if you are not a fan of something like serrated sandpaper you will either need gloves or new grips. I like them, especially since my hands can get clammy. The gun is accurate and repeatable. The trigger has a slight wiggle to it, but it doesn't bother me like I have seen others complain about it. I am not a professional by any means so I can see someone being extremely picky would want to change that as well. This is purely a target gun for me and it is a favorite right out of the box and I was very impressed with the instruction manual and how easy it was to field strip the firearm and the magazines with the instructions. Keep in mind the manual is generalized for the multiple lines of 1911's Para sells. I would recommend this gun to anyone who likes target shooting and wants something that is high quality and ready to shoot out of the box.

I also will be buying future firearms from Buds, they were the cheapest I could find (and I searched a lot). Plus their list of recommended FFL dealers and quick shipping is seamless. I wasn't expecting to get this gun until after Christmas and it showed up Christmas Eve well before it was estimated to arrive. I will be putting another 400-500 rounds through this in the coming days as I try to improve my skill level and I can't wait for it.
