    I purchased a Para GI Expert in the middle of August and it was shooting 4" low at 30ft. I called Para and they of course gave me an RMA so off it went. They had the pistol for over 6 weeks so I called on Tuesday 10/4/11 to check on the status. The pistol was done, they fitted new slide and barrel. I was stoked! The guy I talked with said it should ship out soon! Well it took them a week AND another phone call to get the gun shipped! :mad: Finally got the pistol yesterday and shot it today in our club match. They fixed the issue no problem, it shoots straight, feeds and extracts just fine. I put about 150 rds through the gun with no issues and shot most of stages clean. I'm very pleased with the gun and the repair work, just a little miffed that they took so long to get it back to me. When I sent it in they said it would take 4-5 weeks to fix so I expected to wait, but thought they would ship it out as soon as it was complete. Good workmanship, but the service could be improved a bit.

    Yes, they did fix it and did a great job, it's a very accurate pistol. I'm not complaining about the workmanship, just a little more communication would have enhanced the service experience. I paid $20.00 to ship through my FFL. Nice thing was they sent a target AND the gun was dirty so I know they at least ran some rounds through it, 5 mags according to the documentation. All-in-all I pleased with the work and the way the pistol functions.
