Glad I read the reviews before I bought this gun. It has lived up to them. I had jamming and failure to feed during the first 100 rounds, that started to taper off by 300, and now after following the 500 round break-in mentioned in the book, 0 problems. Para customer service has recently improved, and they simply mailed me a new slide latch lever when I called them about the black finish having chipped on mine. I'm absolutely pleased with this gun, and would buy it again in a minute.

What a value, really a great gun at a great price. I received this in very quickly, no issues with FFL transfer, great service. I have fed close to 500 rounds through this and had minimal issues. I do need to mention that I did have soem feed issues early on (first 100 rounds or so). Picked up some Chip McCormick mags and ...voila, no more feed issues. It may have been break in time, but did have soem isses after about 350 rounds with the standard Para mags using JHP. Otherwise great product.

Great customer service from Buds as usual. The firearm is the best 1911 for the money and is a great base for building up. The factory mags are not very good and should be replaced with a set of Wilson Combat Mags.

Try and find an American made, no frills, 1911 clone for this price! Good luck. Excellent gun. Comes in sturdy plastic case, 2 nickel plated magazines, lock, a small tube of lubricant and a tool. All for $469 - wow. This was my first 45 and it takes some getting used to. Although it kicks far less than my .357, it still is a lot of gun to manhandle. My buddy has a Colt 45 and was equally impressed with my Para. Even though I only ran less than 50 rounds through it the first outing, I was impressed by the craftmanship of this 1911 from Para. Bud's was very good about keeping me informed about each step in the process and my FFL couldn't have been more competent, friendly and helpful. All in all, I'm really pleased with the process. Ordered on Tuesday, picked up the following Monday. I'll be coming back to Bud's in the future.

I can’t say enough about Bud's and the quality of merchandise that these guys send out, it is awesome!.... I purchased a Para Ordnance GI Expert .45 and it was shipped to me in TX in two days.... They constantly sent me update emails letting me know where and what the statues of my package was…. I highly recommend this gun as well as Bud’s, I have only popped off a few hundred rounds with this gun but it works like a machine with no problems…. I am a very satisfied customer and I will be returning.
