    Been wanting a short barrel 1911 for a while. I am a big fan of crimson trace grips.

    Found a new Para Elite officer with crimson trace for $599 at sportsman warehouse today. I jumped on it with really doing any reviews, which is unusual for me.

    Anyone own one? Is this a good buy?

    Any one know of any quality questions since Remington bought them? I'm thinking about the problems with Marlin and their R51 9mm pistol!

    The specs on it are nice. $599 for a new 1911 with all this (of course the function is the most important)

    -2-Dot Dovetail Rear, Green -Fiber Optic Front

    I thinks it is a great price.

    I bought a para pro custom a few weeks back and have been happy so far. But have only put 600 rnds through it so far doing some different loads.
    I like it.

    Thanks. I asked the guy behind the counter why it was so cheap. They had those same model CT grips for sale for $299. He said it was the last one they had and he thought maybe they just wanted to sell it to get it out to make room for something else.

    Any can't wait to take it out

    A lot of people would say Para has had quality questions since long before Remington got involved, unfortunately.

    Hopefully OP's gun runs great and life is good :D That price is about $200 below market on that gun, so no question it was a good deal.
