Para Ordnance SX1640SR 1640 Limited .40S&W 10rd

First of all Buds has been excellent in all my transactions so far. Buy with extreme confidence from Buds!!! I bought this pistol for USPSA competition because so many others were using the same pistol. My experiance with this pistol has been nothing short of dreadful. At first this thing ran like clockwork. However that soon changed. The second match things went south when the rounds wouldn't feed. They would hang up on the feed ramp. Everyone quickly diagnosed magazine problems. I've sent the pistol and mags back to Para (Thanks Buds for lighting a fire under thier butts). They even test fired all of my mags, 10 in all. At $1000 for the gun and $35 per mag, I'm into this pistol a fair amount. I know it's not a custom handfit pistol but it should run as good or better than my $450 XD with $20 mags. After the second round at Para, 5 of my 10 mags still don't work. In one of them the follower was hung up at the bottom of the mag and I was able to just shake the rounds out! When it was working, this is one of the best pistols I've used. But if it isn't reliable, what's the point? I've been told (by fellow USPSA shooters) I can have a Para gunsmith guru tune each mag for $35 each. No thanks. Buds has been great to work with trying to come up with a solution. Don't hesitate to buy from Buds, get the warrenty, but do not buy this gun.
