[3 of 5 Stars!]Fired less than 50 rounds and dropped the pistol appros 18" onto a carpeted floor in my bedroom. The drop wasn't far and it didn't seem to land hard but it was enough to cause the LDA trigger linkage to lock the postol up. Had to contact Para about a return for repair. Seems this item is rather fragile. As much as I like the LDA trigger I'm thinking that there may be a downside when it comes to durability. One more problem like this and I'll have to change my mind on the LDA.
Para said to return for repair. I don't know if there will be any charge but in my opinion there shouldn't be. Any hand gun should be able to stand a minor bump like this. If not, then it isn't suitable for the purpose it's intended for, or the mfg. should provide a warning, fragile handle with extreme care.
This may be a fluke so I'm not going off the deep end yet, but it should be noted that there may be a durability problem with the LDA trigger.

[3 of 5 Stars!]Just received my Para Carry SS today. Right out of the box it doesn't compare to my older model Para Companion C7.45. My Para companion doesn't have the sharp edges on the slide that this Para Carry does. Also the trigger is much smoother on the Para Compaion and the Companion seems to break with less force than this Para Carry. The Para Carry has a little different slide return guide system that I don't like the looks of as well as the one in the Para Companion. The thumb safety on the Carry model larger and feels much easier to manipulate than the one on the Companion.
Over all my impression of the Carry as Compared to the Companion is that it isn't as nicely made, lacking in some of the finer detail. I haven't fired the Carry yet so I will have to reserve an opinion in that regard. I thought it would be useful to give an opinion based on appearance and gener feel before actually fireing it.Show More Reviews...
