http://www.americanrifleman.org/article....=20&sub=21 I have always been interested in Para's but read SOOO many they are great and they are terrible articles and reviews. Reading this makes want to take another look. What you think?

I don't know much about them, but I see a rail on there.

Ruh-roh.

I wouldnt want one with a rail, however I like the smooth rail more than the ugly looking ones on say the Sig.

The 1911 market is pretty crowded, I wish them luck.

I took a quick look at their website and they have an interesting 1911 variant they call their LDA (Light Double Action) series. It looks to be a shortened 1911 (3.5" barrel) with a double action only trigger w/ just the beaver tail safety. It would be a nice option for folks who don't like to carry cocked and locked. However w/ a 1K+ MSRP I probably won't get to rock one of these. Bummer.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

I was really interested in their pro Comp 16.40 last year but eventually got tired of the delays. Perhaps it is something I would consider again if they ever release it to the market but my ADD brain has started looking at other stuff.

Since Para moved to the USA and hired Travis Tomasie their quality appears to have vastly improved. I've been toying with trading in my XDM for a Pro Custom 14.45

I have two LDA pistols from Para. The first is a Commander length 1911 in .45 ACP (single stack) - the "Tac-S". The second is a "Carry 9" micro-1911 in 9mm, also single stack.

The LDA trigger is VERY different than a typical DAO trigger. There is little to no resistance as you initially pull the trigger. There is just enough of a 'catch' to notice, then it breaks like a regular SA trigger.

I have a buddy who has a Para 1911, he loves it. One in stainless is on my short list....
