Good 1911 but trigger was very stiff. Bluing a little thin on slide lock and safety. Like the fiber optic front site. Eats any ammo! Sweet shooting gun after slicking the trigger up.

Awesome gun right out of the box. No issues at all and very accurate!. The trigger is great for a stock trigger. Buds is also great. Shipped quick and has the best price of anywhere.

With a little apprehension and well aware of Para's recent problems I purchased this 1911 because I wanted a mil spec stainless that looked good and had a flared beavertail. It fit the bill on those requirements. Put 50 rounds through the gun earlier today without a single problem. However the recoil is much more than I expected and more than any of my other 1911s to the point of affecting target reacquisition. Am going to get a stronger recoil spring along with a recoil suppressing bushing in hopes that will help. As for now I'm somewhat disappointed.

This is the best and cleanest/ tightest 1911 from Para so far. What great craftmanship and attention to detail for the price point. This gun drills nails all day long and has a great trigger to boot at about 4lbs pull. The grips are my only disappointment, but they are very serviceable. I am going to buy another Para with the 14+1 capacity next. I just can't get over the price at buds vs anybody else. Do yourself a solid and buy yourself a Para Ordnance Expert or the Elite Expert. They all come with match grade barrels and fiber optic front sights. Great gun, great fun!

This is my first 1911and now my favorite gun. I'm fair shooter at best but this thing makes me shoot like a pro. Fiber sight is great and this gun cycles every type of ammo I have put in it. Over 500 rounds and 0 jams or FTEs. Nice trigger, quality built, tight machining, great price with $100 rebate and a lifetime warranty what more do you need??
