Kimber has a tiny one with no sights, just a groove down the top of the slide. But the above para is smaller because there's no hammer sticking out the back since its DAO.
Also, 45GAP makes for a smaller gun than 45ACP

The model LS9(it's only 9mm though)

OMG the LS9 front strap looks uncomfortable!

Why? Too thin?

Say your money and leave the Pars line alone
Warthogs the worst.
I'm on my third Para. I was foolish to sell my first two. Absolutely PERFECT reliability. The only failure I've ever had in a Para is with a Chip McCormick Shooting Star magazine I have and it wouldn't feed well even the first round out of the mag. Problem....the magazine latch cut is too high...bought the mag used with several others. Nothing but nothing wrong with Para pistols. Never shot one smaller than an LTC but I'm sorely tempted by Slim Hog and intend to add one to my collection.

The LS9 frontstrap is flat with no protrusion to fill the arch of the fingers and the edges are sharp corners, does not appear to be chamfered at all.

Armscor imports 1911's and I have one. Can't say about the weight but the barrel is 3.5" and it is light.
Armscor imports RIA, High Standard and one or 2 more.
Will this pistol last 10K rounds? Don't know but the first 400-500 with only 1 failure to feed (FTF) which was my fault says I have a reliable pistol. Accuracy is all that I can manage with my 65 year old eyes and at 20 yards and about 5 inches, I am happy.
I'll leave the 1 moa for you young sprouts:D:D
