Para PXT Carry DA 3" 6 round Stainless
[CWX645S]
$904.00
by Elliott W Date Added: Friday 12 September, 2008
Let me preface this by saying I never thought I would even be looking at Para for my next handgun purchase.

I was looking for a nice CCW 1911 to replace my Glock 30 as my preferred CCW.

My requirements in order were the following:

Extreme concealment as I neighbor a not so CCW friendly state which I frequently travel to
Reliability
Accuracy
Overall Look and Feel
Price

My first thought was the Kimber Ultra Carry II. While this might be a great gun the one thing that kept holding me back was the "locked and cocked" style of the 1911 in general. As I said I have been using a glock which I felt safe carrying around. I know plenty of people who carry 1911s around like this without issue but I could not get over the exposed hammer.

I was not even aware of the "LDA" handgun concept until I started reading some 1911 forums. Once I saw this model I was sold. The LDA snag-less hammer design combined with the very small and concealable frame won me over.

I received the pistol and my first impression was WOW. I know glocks are great guns but man does this thing look and feel a lot sexier.

After the first range test I can say this model is VERY accurate and reliable. 300 rds with 1 cleaning in between and not one misfire/jam.

I am so impressed with the quality and accuracy of this model I plan on getting a full size 1911 from Para in the near future.

As far as the model's conceal ability goes. With a Galco Concealable Belt Holster you cannot even tell its there. Its about the same weight as my 10 round glock but much slimmer and shorter.
