Para GIC45RK 1911 GI Expert LTC 45 ACP 4.25" 8+1 Grip Covert [GIC45RK]
by William C
Date Added: Thursday 18 October, 2012
I've put about 600 rounds of standard 230 FMJ through this handgun and I've been very unhappy with it for the following reasons.
1.) The mags that came with it caused repeated jams including failure to load the first round. I was sent a replacement by PARA but had the same problem. I know it's their mags as the gun cycles fine with both Wilson and ACT-Mags.
2.) After about 400 rounds the gun started showing excessive wear in both the frame and slide areas. The slide is not forged properly and has started to peen around the slide stop slot both forward and aft of the cut.
3.) The frame is showing excessive wear both in the slide stop drilling and the ejector drilling. Both are already lose and sloppy. The ejector can be wiggled in just about every direction.
4.) The finish is a total let down with both the slide stop and the thunb safety showing metal through the paint already and the slide finish is starting to wear away as well.
I have a Springfield Gov Model, a Taurus PT1911 and a Colt Gold Cup that have all had many more rounds through them (The Springfield in the thousands) and none display the wear that this PARA does.
I bought this gun as a carry piece, but it is now a safe queen as I do not trust it for anything more then plinking. I suggest you spend the extra money for a Colt or a Springfield and avoid the let down. I'm looking at a Colt XSE next and I'm probably going to off load the PARA as soon as I can find someone willing to take it off my hands without me having to take enother bath.
I hope this review is helpful and respectful enough for everyone.
