I was able to move a couple of guns I don't really use anymore and get enough cash for a new Para or Kimber. I've been doing my research and part of that would include asking in here for opinions. I have not narrowed down the model yet, but it will be a commander or compact size -single stack, single action (no LDA). Is there any reason to go with one over the other? I think both make SHARP looking pistols, that's for sure. The Kimber of course must have an internal extractor.

I'm leaning towards Kimber right now as their accuracy is scary.

I appreciate the answers guys....any reasons though as to why Kimber?

make sure the Kimber has the internal extractor...search a few post here and you'll find out why..
Para has a Power Extractor, from what i've seen, it's a two piece design and you have to get a replacement from their factory.

Best bang for the buck.
I have 3 right now, no problems out of any of them.

I think the Kimber gives you more for the money. They have a level of quality that the I have not seen in a Para.

I have to say that I have a Para and I love it. Mine is the P10. I love having the ultra small pistol, 10 rounds of .45 and still the 1911. Good shooter.

My only complaint with Para is that they have not made what I feel would be the perfect pistol yet. The P14.45 Limited SA with a rail for a weapon light.

FWIW I have not touched a pistol with their LDA trigger on it yet...

Para...look for my range report later today regarding my Para P12.

The Kimbers that I have seen and fondled, both internal and external extractors, have not impressed me that much.

I'm looking to get a Rock Island 1911. I want to know how good is it and is it good for building on?
