Ok,....first general impressions.

Frame is very close to a standard 1911 with standard grips.
Slide to frame fit is very good, rear of slide to frame & extractor is good.
Long trigger installed, will be changing to a short. Balance is good for a 6" slide.
Trigger pull is good, would say 4# or slightly less. Very crisp, little to no creep.
Ambi safety, could do without that, very crisp & positive.
Grip & msh area has nice checkering, feels good.

Kimber bp10

I sold this for a nice profit before I got to shoot this one.

Para ordinance p-12

This pistol turned me off to double stacked 1911's. Out of the roughly 1k rounds I put through it, I'd say about a third were ftf or fte.

Need some details on the first on Bucky!
Is it a custom build on a Caspian frame/slide?

The Kimber is a rather rare one!
PO,......stands for "pissed owner"

Para Ordnance seems to be very sketchy in regards to QC
Some run just fine, some are complete pigs! I had a P14
Limited that ran 100%. It did have some finish flaking, PO
refinished it & I parted ways with it.

Yes. it's a Custom Build on a Caspian slide and frame. It was built for USPSA limited division, and is .40 caliber with a Schuemann Bull barrel.

I had 20 round magazines for it, that I had to custom make from the 19 round factory mags. Ironically, the 19 round mags were too long to be legal, and I shortened them, but added a Grahms +1 pad (from an STI), and was surprised that not only were the mags legal, but held one more round.

I ultimately sold it to fund an EGW build STI. :supergrin::supergrin:

That thing is sweet. I was never a huge fan of the doublestack, but ive been getting the itch lately. I wish they sold that one in .45

People malign Para-ordnance, but I've had a few of them, and my sampling has been good. For what they are, they shot 100%, and my only complaint was that they felt blocky. One of the great attributes of the 1911 design is its slimness; that's defeated by the double stack 1911 pattern handguns.

I don't have any of the Para-ordnance pistols now; I've sold them all, and probably won't get more, though I was happy with the ones I owned. I've heard about too many others who have had problems, and there are many other 1911's I'd pick first. None of them are double-stacks.

If you are in the Cleveland area you can shoot mine. Don't see why you would want to Cleveland though. :animlol:
