Grips and sights for a Para
I've decided that instead of buying a new gun in the near future, I want to make some improvements to the ones I already own. It's mostly aesthetic stuff and accesories like holsters, extra magazines, etc.

I'm going to start with my Para P14-45. It needs some nice wood or G-10 grips, any suggestions about where to get them? Standard 1911 grips don't fit. :mad:

The other change I want to make is the rear sight, I'm looking for an adjustable sight that's not very bulky. What brands should I be looking at?

Novak makes excellent adjustable rear sights that don't have any sharp edges or stick way up.

Thanks, I'll take a look at those! Any ideas about grips?

Have you tried World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools - BROWNELLS ?

Francisco does the Para have a Bomar cut?

Tripp Research is in the final stages of development of a new rear sight.

Thanks for the Hogue link, Cane. I'm feeling a bit silly for not checking that one first.

My pistol has a regular dovetail cut, not a Bomar cut so that sight won't work. :(

I've used Dawson Precision for sights on more than one occasion - they carry a wide variety. As for grips, I've found Para double-stack grips on Ebay more than once...

I've ordered two sets of Hogue grips, one of the ugly but comfy rubber ones and some nice cocobolo ones (non checkered).

I'm going to hit a few shops today and check out the sights they've got available.

They dont ship to Argentina, or they don't ship out of US/Canada ? Did you talk to them ?
I'm down here in Chile, and I was about to order some item from them...:confused:
