Show us your Favorite Para.

I've noticed that most of the other brands have a picture post. However, I could not find one for Para-Ordnance. So I say lets start one. I'll go first.
Here is my P16-40 limited. I bought it used so it came with the S&A magwell. I changed out the plastic mag release with a steel one and smoothed out the trigger a bit.
So far I put approximately 1200 rounds through it with zero problems.
Come on show your favorite Para.

What type of front sight do you have on your pistol. is it an EGW? I want to repalce the sight on my P16-40 and can't decide which one to get (EGW or Dawson). If it is an EGW how do you like it? easy to install?
TIA

Sight

It is an EGW.. I love it. Not saying anything bad about the Dawson's, they were just backordered for about a month, and of course, I couldn't wait.. I had my local GS do it. He didn't charge me and I figured he would buy me a new one if he broke it. I started it thoug and went on pretty easy..

Gold

I bought new steel hammer, mag button,etc, and had them electroplated with gold. Took months to get them all done but worth the wait.

Good Morning

I shot that group from 15 yards off a bench with a rest. Gun will do that all day long if I do my part. 200 gr Saeco LSW, 5.3 gr Win 231, WLP primers, Brass mixed.

Para makes a great pistol.

Those are mighty fine grips; can I ask who made them? Do others of you have Paras with unique grips that you can show and advise on who makes the grips.
