FANTASTIC , that says most of it ...lets address this one at a time shall we ... Box, comes in a kickin green box big like something a saw would come in , goo d latches ... Gun , nice deep black matte finish the new royal finish...sights are nice , and even better was a coupon for 99 dollar tritiums from para if i send them the slide , RIGHT ON PARA , scored one for me ... Went to the range to get familular with my new ccw piece and spent some QT putting 250 rounds of remingotn /umc ammo at plates etc... gun handles very well very very tight slide which i like . no wobble . trigger was smooth as silk . the lightweight (28oz i think) made the gun a little more awake than my old kimber governemnt model. that was to be expected. all in all I am very very happy i got hte para , no significant issues with the 250 rounds all went bang and the para power extractor did it's job , only one semi complain , wish the front strap was checkered or stippled , something for grip but APW in florida will take care of that for me ....

What was the total bill on the Para?? The coupon for night sights is hard to beat.

... Hey!

... Another Para-Ordnance fan. I absolutely love 'em - Yes, main have all been "tuned out-of-box" but nonetheless, they are the best 1911 "full-capacity" pistols you can carry!

You like the paras over the STI's? As hicap 1911's go I would take a STI over a para anyday.
Not that I dislike paras.

... I do like STI's, but I just prefer raw utility (steel) frames for "daily duty"
