Lightweight, easy to conceal and carry smooth shooter plain and simple. My first 1911 and purchase from buds, definitely not my last! Best prices anywhere,Keep up the good.

Received in good order, but not as quickly because I used EFT, which should have expedited the transaction. I cleaned and oiled it per the instructions, and before I could get it to the range (in fact, after disassembly/assembly via the excellent manual), the hammer locked in the back position. Couple phone calls to Para, sent it back and they repaired the "sear installed backwards." Never took it apart that far. Finally got it to the range, fired about 200 rounds through it with my son with several malfunctions (mainly incomplete ejection). Took it back to the range again, fired about 300 more rounds, same issues, but probably due to my son's weak-wristing. Disassembled, cleaned, and here we go again: Hammer locked back. Back on the emails to Para, sent it back again, and this time, the grip safety was malfunctioning. Got it back again, test fired like before, and I have yet to disassemble to clean and test again. I love the size, shape, price and quality, but seriously?

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.

Just my two cents!

Delivery was prompt, as always with Bud's. Pistol looked good upon examining it at the store. Stripped, cleaned and lubed it, and headed for the range. First three mags went fine, then I had a failure to feed on the second to last round in each mag. Put one hundred rounds of factory ball, and three mags of hollow pnts, threw it, and had that same odd malf, with each one. Only had one mag with me, a Wilson that's never been a problem before. Accuracy was pretty good, but the trigger has to be 5 1/2 to 6 lbs. Also, the only aftermarket sights that fit this thing are the XS express type sights.I'll hit the range again soon, put another couple hundred rounds threw it and hope for an improvement. Will update if things go better.

bought this gun in march and was saving my review for when i actually took it to the range. some para reviews had me concerned about the quality of the guns and reliability. the manual calls for 250 rounds before initial cleaning. shot 200 rounds today and had only 1 failure to feed, which i think was merely due to the gun being very dry. this is a great sub-$1000 1911 and i highly recommend it. after cleaning it tonight it looks fantastic and the slide is broken in really nicely. i also put silver alumagrips on the gun which make it look amazing.
