This is my first 1911and now my favorite gun. I'm fair shooter at best but this thing makes me shoot like a pro. Fiber sight is great and this gun cycles every type of ammo I have put in it. Over 500 rounds and 0 jams or FTEs. Nice trigger, quality built, tight machining, great price with $100 rebate and a lifetime warranty what more do you need??

For one reason or another I didn't end up going to the range with my new Para Ordnance Expert for an entire year. But when I finally did get there,boy was I in for a treat! Like many others, I own a very wide assortment of firearms and have extensive experience with military arms and such. This one now ranks at the very top! Everything seems to be as good as good can get. It feels wonderful in the hands the tolerances are tight and symmetric, the fiber optic sites are great,the slide and action is smooth and BEST of all the trigger is well balanced and crisp, right around 4 pounds. This Para Ordinance is under -stated and probably under represented on many forums. In the past I have been a Smith & Wesson guy. But my eyes are truly open now to the Para's. Don't hesitate to pick this one up, especially when the price drops around $600 or so. This one gets five stars all the way...Happy shooting!

I purchased this gun because I wanted a good 1911 for a good price. This is my first 1911, but I have other pistols (EAA Witness Match, Canik 55, etc). I saw a lot of reviews about this gun so I figured I would go for it. I got the gun very fast from Bud's and customer service was awesome. To be honest, Bud's had the best price for the gun, so I went with Bud's. I got the gun and took it to the range the same day (after a quick lube and wipe down). My first impression (before firing it) was that the gun was very basic. It does not have a full length guide rod, though the fit and finish were VERY tight. So I took it to the range to see how it would shoot... and OH MY GOSH! This thing is so accurate! The small green fiber optic front sight is a dream. I put the target (paper target) at 45 ft and clustered within 5 inches (yes, in the middle). I am not a great marksman by any means, but shooting this gun was like threading a needle... even though its a .45 ACP! This is my new favorite toy. The way it feeds the next bullet in the chamber is as if the barrel had a special magnet that just sucked in the next round after I cock the slide. I had no FTF or FTE after about 100 rounds. I used Winchester .45 ammo, but I'm sure it would be the same for most any other brand. I would highly recommend this gun and Bud's to anyone looking for a sweet 1911 that won't break the bank.

Having been military and civilian police for a combined total of 23 years, I have only been acquainted with the combined double action/single action handguns. Being my first 1911, I must say WOW! I may never go back! Function is flawless, single-action trigger is amazing, and I'm now a convert to the 1911! After ordering the rosewood grips from the Para Pro Shop, this looks better to me, by far, than the Ruger 1911. I was skeptical of the sights at first, the Hi Viz front with no do dot rear sights, but the black stood out well in contrast with the stainless frame, and front sight was easy to acquire and line up for rapid follow-up shots, with amazing accuracy; so much so that I may not need to replace them! Not only this, but Para is offering the $100 refund for a purchase of this handgun, and their customer service has been second-to-none. I will be doing all my future business through Para: they are all American made, best available purchase price, high quality, and great customer service. Order and you won't be disappointed!
