Para LDA owners chime in.
 
I'm looking at a TX745S LDA. I was just wondering if you own one do you like it, any problems with it, is it difficult to fully take apart and put back together and are any of the LDA parts still available? Thanks for any info.

I had a P-18 LDA that saw a good bit of match use years back. There were no issues with the pistol. Magazine availability at the time was the biggest issue for the 9mm, not the case for the .45s, though. The LDAs are not difficult at all to take apart, but do be aware that replacement parts are not easy to come by. I don't believe Remington is supporting those models. If you get it, and use it regularly, all I can suggest is don't detail strip it too often to minimize the risk of losing/damaging any of the small parts.

Thanks for your input.

Sarco used to have "armorer's kits" of LDA parts; they might be able to piece another one together out of bits laying around. Numrich has a few parts.

I always thought the LDA system was a fine idea and I'm sad to see it didn't catch on.

I will join for parts info. I have a Para Carry that has never been carried.

At least on this guy the LDA is not a true double action but more a stage fire like a Glock. Pull the trigger and go click with an empty pistol. Pull the trigger again and nothing. One has to pull the slide all the way back to cock it again. Even if one puts their thumb nail in the top of the hammer it will not cock or lock back. Also the LDA system eats space out of the right frame rail which is why this little .45ACP pistol has to have a steel frame.

This is the only Para I have left in my shooty collection and keep it just for the LDA trigger and the fact it was made in Canada.

Wow that thing must kick like a mule.

Be aware, that if you take an LDA totally apart, it takes 3 hands, a small boy and a monkey to get it back together! I've done it once and will never do it again.

This is what I was wondering about.
