    Para Expert 1911 in stainless. $499. I realize it's a "budget" or "entry" 1911, but that price seemed to be a screaming deal. Normally $650? Seems like a good enough start, forged frame and slide. Just curious. It peaked my interest for sure.

    If I didn't already own my dream 1911(Sig Scorpion Carry), I'd have waited in line for one for sure. I used to have a black Para Expert and it ran like a Champ! They come out of the box with great triggers and by all accounts are very accurate. I know mine sure was!

    I bought and carried a P12 for several years. It left me with a positive enough opinion that I'd try another one if I was looking in that price range. $500 is cheep!

    Great gun. Accurate and reliable. However the finish is weak. I would think one would want to have it refinished with a more durable product. Unless you do not care about the worn look. Either way it is a great value.
