Custom Para Ord P16-40 Signature & AccessoriesAnother Pic
Pistol was built by master pistolsmith Erol Lawson in South Florida. The pistol is truely a custom and feels like it from the second you pick it up. Racking the slide once is not enough - this pistol cycles so smoothly that you find yourself gently racking the slide back & forth just to feel the outstanding craftsmanship that a master pistolsmith can produce with quality components. And it shoots even better.
The Signature model from Para Ordnance (now called 'Limited') already comes with all of the bells & whistles from the factory. Each part was then custom fit for perfection - that's what he does best - while replacing those parts that did not meet his standards with the Custom STI parts.

Custom STI parts list:
I have the hand written invoice by Erol documenting work performed & custom STI
There are a total of 10 magazines, 7 have been tuned to the pistol; 3 of those have alloy Dawson Precision base pads @ $35 a piece allowing a 20 round capacity each, three are standard 15 rounds factory mags with factory base pads, and one is a 10 round factory mag. Of the remaining 3, all are stainless STI for Para magazines, two have standard base pads and the last is just the stainless magazine tube without follower, spring, or base pad.
Paid $650 for it new and put in another $750 between custom work & custom STI parts, so I've got $1400 in it + magazines + Safariland holster, magazine holders w/ upgraded knurled tension screws, & belts. Pistol has a total of 1200 rounds fired.
I want *****Everything Has Been Sold*****
$850 + shipping
for the pistol w/ two tuned hicap magazines, box, & paperwork. And that's a $550 loss on the custom work & parts. Additional magazines are available for $35 each w/ the pistol - will do a significant discount for quantity of mags. And the Safariland 012 holster & 3 matching Safariland mag holders & inner/outer belts are also available as a single lot for $140 + shipping.
The slide has some light thin marks on it made by the clamps/vices used to hold the slide while undergoing custom work. Its my fault - I instructed Erol not to worry about the finish while working on it, but to spend that extra time on the internal mechanics of the pistol. And boy did he - I had planned on getting it refinished in hard chrome but never got around to it. The pistol has been well taken care of, as evidenced by its condition, but did want to mention the small light marks on the slide. I'll offer a 3 day no fire inspection to alleviate any fears.
Selling to fund a Rem 700LSS Mtn Rifle, so I'd like to get some $ with trades, but I'm always interested in McMillan Non-Benchrest stocks inletted for a Rem 700 S/A or L/A rifle, Jewell HVR triggers for Rem 700's, quality M4 stocks, complete or stripped AR lowers & A3 uppers, Leupold VX III or Mk4 scopes, Zeiss Conquest scopes, Rem 700 rifles, Surefire lights, or Para C6.45LDA pistol.
