New to me LDA




Just picked up an LDA Limited. The gun was sent to Cylinder & Slide for there reliability package. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet because I'm out of town, will post a range report as soon as I get to shoot it.

A couple of poor quality cell phone pictures.

Did you shoot it before you sent it?

My LDA's (a 14.45 and a Tac Four) are both stock and work fine.

The previous owner had the work done.

Nice when somebody else spends the money and you don't have to.

This is my CCO/LDA .45acp it's out of production today. Mine was and still is a really good shooting handgun with a great trigger. It needed nothing to improve it in out of the box IMHO.

What you probably have is one of Para's military commemmorative pistols.

As I understand it, members of a military unit could order a minimum number of pistols and get their unit designation and anything else engraved on the slide.

As for the mag, try locking the slide back and insert the mag. Then release the slide to chamber the first round. Otherwise, it's likely to ease up a bit after some use.
