Looks nice. One thing I added to my 14/45 is the Smith and Alexander Partial Magwell. It forms the mag base to make it look like a flush bottom. It would look good on the all black look of your gun. just minor Gun Smithing needed to fit the new Main Spring Housing on. Also removed the plastic one that comes on the Para's.

Have fun breaking it in. BTW, use rounded bullet ammo, not HP's that have flattend nose, I have had feed issues and that may be the rason. Try both and see becuase I'm curious to see your results after breaking it in with 500 rounds. mix it up on ammo types but don't get to many of the HP's with the flatter sides and nose. See my pic's for ideas, I'll be looking for your feedback!

BaddAss looking piece there. Kind of curious about the adjustable rear sights on a tactical weapon. Was that a special order or is that standard equipment?

The Black ops has three different versions., this is just one of them. the others are their double stack version and the other is identical to mine with night sights.. To be honest this version (limited) just seemed right when I held it in my hand and went this direction. Cant explain it.. it just talked to me!...

Love Mine!

Congrats on your new Black Ops! I got the 14 round Black Ops with night sights. My new favorite handgun! Fits my hand perfectly and is a SWEET shooter. Ran some 230 gr ball ammo, 185 gr Hornady JHP reloads, and some 230 gr LRN through it. Ran like a top, no issues at all! Hope you enjoy yours too! Have fun!

HAH! I know what you mean. That happenened to me the first time I had a 14.45 in my mitts. There is just something about them that screams, OWN ME! So I now have two, a Limited and an LDA..and they both drill with no function problems at all, specially with the LSWC I load. Don't forget the range report that's mandatory for us here....Lol!

**Range Report**
Fired my new Para Black Ops 1911 yesterday morning.. lets just say it is.. Awesome.. super accurate and a pleasure to shoot.. I put 125 rounds trough it with no problems.. 230 grain ball ammo (Winchester white box) fed perfectly... I am super impressed with this gun and with the magazines para supplied... I had no MF or FTF at all.. It wasn't all hearts and flowers the only issue if this is even an issue with the gun is the trigger reset, had to get used to it.. it may just need some fine tuning., we shall see. I was able to hit targets at well over 75-80 ft away, the grips held up great and fit my hand like a glove... I'm very happy with the results, I would have fired more rounds but my Para Black Ops was sharing time with my regular EDC Kimber Super Carry Pro...

Thanks for the range report, it sounds like it is going to be a very good shooting gun.

Great News! Congrats. I feel if a person is not happy with a gun, it will never shoot well. Confidence is a large factor.....Enjoy!

Awesome pics! I love the look of the muzzle blast on the IonBond near the front serrations....and the fact that it cleans up so easy!

Well since your showing more than a Para, hers my picnic table shot. Black Op's and limited 14-45.

Also notice the Smith & Alexander Partial Magwell with Mainspring Housing.

@ mrktre02 Where did you find the gun? I am looking for a Black Ops LTD right now... particularly a version with the slide markings like what you have shown. I have now seen 3 different slide markings... perhaps there is a serial correlation?

I thought you were talking to me.

That's not a Para Black Op's, it a 14-45 Limited. I meant my AR is my only Black Op's. It will have to do till I can get one of those LDA's. I won't be getting another 14-45, I'm going for the 3" LDA carry or a Warthog when they come out.

I picked it up in Colorado Springs, CO at Sportsman Warehouse, they had both the limited which i picked up and the night sight version.. When I went to pay for it they walked into the back and pulled another Limited out of the box with no slide markings, once I noticed it was quickly fixed.. we tried to figure out if there was any other difference and all we could come up with was that there was no other differences but the skull logo... The salesman wasn't tracking if it was a special run of BlackOps.. All I know is that it looked cool and she was going home with me.. Its been running like a champ.. I'm impressed with Para...

Yeh, I sent Tom a note trying to figure out where to find your version. It sounds like there is no rhyme or reason to the slide markings. How interesting. What price did they hit you with? Just curious.

Thanks. Jeremy
