Picked Up a Para

Well after about 25 years I am back in the 1911 game. I found a gently used Para Elite Pro in stainless with several mags and 250 rounds of Lawman ammo. I hope it shoots as good as it looks.

Very nice. I never paid much attention to Para's until I was looking for a double stack 45acp.
Love mine.

In the past I have had a Kimber and a Colt Gold Cup. That was many years ago. Since then, it has mainly been Glocks, Sigs, and revolvers. I missed the 1911 somewhat but found this set up for $620 for the gun which has Trijicon sights, mags-4 are Chip Mcormick, and 250 rounds of ammo. I know that some Paras have a bad reputation but I could not resist to give it a try.

Great price also.
I have a Pro Custom and didn't realize regular mags for the pro custom were costly. Had to buy Dawson base plates to get spares to fit. Glad to see you got extra mags and very good ones at that.
