PARA PX745EK SSP 45 5IN 8R BLK
[PX745EK]
$807.00
by Jan B Date Added: Wednesday 07 March, 2012
The order experience from Bud's was basicly painless although the ACH payment process seemed to add a lot to the time between shipment and delivery. The pistol itself is great. I did notice that at first it did not want to allow me to release the slide with an empty mag. I partially loaded a mag and cycled a couple of rounds through to make sure it worked. After that it would release the slide with an empty mag but it was very stiff.

I took it to the range yesterday and shot my first 250 rounds. Para recommends shooting 250 rounds, then thoroughly clean and lube then repeat for a break in. I have never done this before but followed their recommendations. For my first session, I shot 100 rounds of Tula 230 fmj, 100 Federal Champion 230 fmj, and 50 rounds of Georgia Arms 230 fmj. All 250 rounds cycled and fired flawlessly. I shot targets at 15 yards and at 25 yards. I was impressed with the results. NO I am not a professional shooter. I am not even real good with a handgun. BUT, with this pistol, I was pretty dang good for the first time out. I need to add that this is the first time I have ever shot a 1911 and I like it. I did tend to shoot a little low but that could have just been me. Or, the ammo. Shooting other pistols, I have observed that the point of impact is sometimes different with different brands of ammo. Overall I am a happy camper. The slide release with an empty mag problem showed significant improvement after the 250 rounds. I am looking forward to the next 250.
