Para long slide




Is it possible to mate a long slide/barrel on a para ordnance hi-cap frame e.g. P14?

Long Slide and Barrel !!!!!

Yes one can do that, and it looks rather nice...
I have a couple of projects that are going to be done
like that..
One 45 tribrid 6" and one 38 supercomp tribrid 6"
I do not have any pics of such but they are out there..

Do you have something in mind like the one on the left. It's a 9mm longslide built on a P-16 frame. There's a lot that can be done as far as customs guns using Para as the base gun.

Here they are side by side same length, I can use the same holster adjustment for both guns. I don't know, not having to adjust a holster may be a sign of getting lazy but I'll never admitt to that.

Here's the last pictures as I'm sure I've bored you all enough. I'm in the process now of building a longslide tribrid barrel Para for a customer it will use a Doctor sight. When it's done I'll post a couple of pictures of it here on the Forum.
If you have any questions that I can assist you with about longslide Para's feel free to contact me. I will be off line for about a week so it will be at least that long before I can reply.

Wow Rick

tha looks just like my p16 except that I have the adjustable sights...
I enjoy the dawson magwell... and there basepads...
one thing to think about ...
if you ever want to try a a S&A you can always go back
to the dawson, as he makes one to retro fit the S&A cut...

somthing to think about...
here is a some pictures of my Two...

I'm back, after a 3000 mile round trip through Kansas, Colorado, Utah, and Arizonia, having some fun with the prarie dogs and fly fishing. I apologize for the slow response to the questions ask and I want to thank everyone for the kind words about the guns.

SuperComp9
I will post some pictures of the longslide tribrid when its completed. However it may be a while as the gun will need to be refinished and that's still being decided.

Rick from Kali
I do think Dawson makes a nice mag well but I prefer to use the S&A. The reason I like the S&A magwell is, it's compatible with all the magazine basepads including the stock Para base pads without doing any modification to the basepads. It does take more work to fit the S&A magwell but I believe it's time well spent.

5 years ago, I sent my P-13 to the custom shop at Springfield Armory to have a 6" Caspian slide and match barrel attached.

I dealt with Dave Williams on the phone and they did a great job on it. My only regret was I didn't have the money then to send a new P-14 to them to get converted. I was too poor to buy a new gun and I already owned the P-13.
