    Default Para Ordnance

    I dont want to offend anyone but I have heard that para doesnt make the best quality gun. Can I get some othe opinions maybe some para owners to tell me how their guns perform. Thanks

    I've got a GI Expert 1911, and I like it a lot. About 800-1000 rounds through it, with no failure to feeds, and while it does tend to shoot low I think that's more operator error than anything else.

    I have a .45 and its dead on the money and I'm not the best shooter. I love mine had it 4yrs and have put over 2000 rounds (probably over 3 but I lost count so I'm being conservative) through it no problem. Now to be honest it has developed a feeding problem just recently but after talking to people on here I believe it can be fixed quite easily with a new spring.

    They seem hit or miss.

    I have 2 that run 100%, 1 that vexes me, and I that jammed so often I traded it in.

    I found both triggers to be terrible to me so the triggers are on a scale to me.. The Glock was a crisper suck and the XD was a more mushy suck. They are in the same family, SR9 (heavy suck), Glock (crisp heavy suck), XD( lighter mushy suck), M&P(heavy mushy suck).

    It seems the early US made ones were problematic.

    I had a Canadian made P14 that ran without a hitch for over 20K rounds and USPSA matches.


    But then I have seen some of the US made ones come through the shop needing a tweak.

    It now seems the bugs are pretty much cleared up.

    I think they are good guns for the money and am considering getting back into the .45acp for matches and am thinking about the Sterling P14 Limited.

    I have a TAC s and a LTC, i have been waiting for a number of years now to have a , FTF, FTE, parts breakage, whatever, the guns just wont fail, i give up, guess i'm out of luck.

    Very accurate guns by the way , worthy of that "Match" stamped on their barrels.

    Thw worst gun I ever owned was a Para P12. Two trips back to the factory and countless spring changes could not get it to run reliably.
    Ill never buy another.

    Ok, but was it US made or Canadian?
    When was this?


    As I said, there were stinkers when they moved production to the US.
