    My LGS has a stainless Para Ordnance 13-45 on consignment. It comes with 5 mags (3 x 13-rds and 2x15). The price seems a little high at $750, but there’s probably some room to negotiate. I’m more interested in feedback on the platform. I have some concerns about support ability because they’re...

    Bloodied my dad's Para Commander this morning, took out this red squirrel with it. These destructive little bastards are deceptively adorable. They'll nest everywhere you don't want them, chew holes into your house, chew wiring, and sh!t everywhere they go, like cute, fluffy tailed rats. We...

    Someone wants to trade their Para 14-45 for my Sig M17 plus 1 box of ammo and $200 on my end. A good deal? Are Para 14-45 still cool in 2021?

    Hey guys, my dad gave me a couple of his mid 90's custom 1911's I was hoping someone could chime in as far as value. Please excuse the dirty guns, I put a few hundred rounds through each. Both are .45. First is a Les Baer that was sent in to Marc Krebs of Krebs custom for a complete overhaul...

    Any idea if these are any good? Used to have a BlackOps 14-45 and it was amazing. This one looks budget-ish but didn’t know if they were worth toying with.

    Some of you have probably already send this but I thought it was good background reading on the evolution of the 1911/2011. https://www.thefreelibrary.com/SINGLE+ACTION+HI-CAPS%3A+A+century+to+perfection%3F-a0515975309

    I put a used Para GI Expert on layaway at a local shop earlier this week. I bought it as another project gun. It appears to me it is the older GI Expert as it doesn't have an extended beaver tail grip safety, and the front sight isn't fiber optic. It has quite a bit of holster wear, and it...

    I bought this used on a whim. I prefer the Colt Officers ACP that I built. I can only say this was 100% reliable over the course of fire at one IDPA match...which was only 70 rounds or so. It hit to POA + 2" at 10 yards, windage was right on. I never carried it other than the duration of...

    I love / hate my 12-rd Hawg. I can't find any main springs of any weight for it. The MSH is about 1/4" shorter than an Officer size gun & the sear spring is very short as well. EGW made me a SGR kit for it (I hate two piece units) and I also wanted to lighten the main spring. People have been...

    So my 78 year old father bought one of the Para Commanders that CDNN had on sale, it's the first 1911 he's had in almost 40 years! He was robbed back in the late '70s and they stole all of his guns, including his 1911s. He bought other guns over the years but never got around to buying another...
