Para Good, bad or in between?

Does Para make a decent 1911? I noticed they dropped some of their prices and have only heard a very limited amount of VERY mixed things about them. Anyone have experience with them? Please share. Thank you.

I have a gi expert, and like it. Shoots low, but that's likely me or the ammo. No FTF or jams at all.

I know Classic Pistol in Southampton refuses to stock them because they think they're junk, but other than that I never looked into them. Which 1911 model are you specifically looking at?

I have a commander-length Tac-S. I liked it so much I also picked up a Carry 9 (micro-1911) too. Both have their LDA trigger system. Never have had a hiccup with either.

I just bought one of these and it far exceeded my expectations. The finish and trigger alone were very impressive.

Para Ordinance offers a lifetime warranty to the original owner.

Rock Island offers a lifetime warranty for the life of the gun.

great forums on ONLY the 1911 platform.

I am biased though, as I bought a Rock Island Armory Tactical 45 as my first 1911...
