Any thoughts on Para Ordnance .45 ACP or .40 S&W? Both of the guns have match triggers, FO sights, 5 14rd. magazines, custom engraving and carrying case. I can get one for about $750, just not sure if it's worth it.

Para is good. Doesnt get hat much play untill you get into the IPSC area becuase of the fact they are one of the few 1911 companies that support the "wide body" double stack 1911.

As you described the high capacity Para in my opinion it is not true to the 1911 single stack platform and noticably wider in the grip which can be a problem for some. If it fits your hand and your needs and is NEW then $750 is not out of line. I think there 45 hold 12 and the 40 holds 16. I could be wrong though. Been while since I messed with a para. One thing I did like about the para was there LDA trigger. Smart idea.

You will find that the finish and lock up are not on the same level as the Loaded and up Springfields, Kimbers, or Sig.

Right now other than used Kimber's best bang for the Buck is the Sig GSR

Good stuff Ponch. You ever run accross those muzzle breaks for Beretta's like you have on your 92fs? I haven't seen any around.

Which 92 Brian?

Only one Beretta I have has a Factory 92 break on it, the others have factory target barrels in either 6" or 7". Did I post a pic?

Thanks for the info. If I had the extra cash it wouldn't be a questionable purchase because this would be the gun that I'd hold on to. Para did this deal for all the units deployed overseas and engraved their unit crests on the guns.

No, I saw them when I was at your place that time we changed the springs in my FS. I think it was a factory break on one of your stainless beretta's

I know what break your talking about. That break is about 15 years old and the last time I saw one it went for $300, and the guy got $300!
