Para SX1445S 14-45 Ltd SA 45 ACP 5" 14+1 Blk Syn Grip Blk/SS
by William K Date Added: Sunday 15 January, 2012
Gun has issues:

Problem 1. Failure to feed. About one out of twenty rounds will get stuck when feeding. Round goes about 1/2 the way into the barrel and stops. Need to pull the slide back a little and push it forward.

Problem 2. Trigger has excessive creep in it. Not crisp at all.

Problem 3. Ambi Safety will come loose on the right side of the gun and safety will fail to operate.

Problem 4. Slide/frame fit is ok but certainly not great. This gun will rattle a little.

Problem 5. Mag release is very difficult to operate when magazine is full our partially full. Pain when doing tactical reloads.

Problem 6. Would be nice if gun had an extended slide and mag release.

If you plan on using the gun for tactical, carry or home defense situations plan on a trigger job, replacing the rear sight with a fixed sight that won't cut up your hand when doing malfunctions and tactical work, an extended mag release and an extended slide release, and some work on the feeding problems. I am going to have to send my copy to the gunsmith for problems 1, 2, 3 and 5. To date I have only put about 1,000 rounds of new federal premium ammunition through it.

Minor issue: The fiber optic insert in the front sight started to fall out and required small amount of crazy glue.
Accuracy is good.
Feels very good in my hands.
Like the double stack mag.
Fairly inexpensive compared to semi custom guns like Les Baer but no comparison in quality.
If I had to do it again I would save up for a Les Baer or a Nighthawk.
