i put some vz tiger stripe operator grips on:

i've put about 600 rounds through it so far with no problems aside from a ftf one round early on during the break in, and has not been repeated. (this gun comes so tight when brand new, you have to really grip it to pull back the slide--the manual recommends a 500 round break in).

it shoots quite accurately, allowing you to easily make a ragged hole at 15 yards. the very smooth and light trigger pull aids in this too. it feels about 4lbs.

the slide to frame fit quality is instantly noticeable when you first pull back the slide. it's smooth as glass, and has no play whatsoever.

the polishing of the frame ramp and barrel throat are also quite nice, and the barrel is crowned at 11 degrees.

you certainly wouldn't expect these features on a $550 1911.

here's 50 rounds at 15 yards, two hand hold:

never been a Para fan How ever they have done it right . This would be a great 1911 carry pistol simple with good sites and trigger. That really all you need and of course reliability. I hope other 1911 company's return to the KISS pistol idea.

Thanks for posting this, FMJ. I'm desperately trying to talk my wife into one of these, vice a Colt, Kimber, etc. Gonna need all the help I can get to pull that off.

I was actually deciding between this one and my last purchase which happened to be a Glock 27. I'm still hoping to get one soon though!

You should have put mother of pearl grips on it instead.

I though about that. They would've gone nicely with my hat with the feather in it.
