My newest addition
 
My new para 1911 gi expert . I love that for a lower end 1911 it's made in the US , Skeletonized trigger and hammer , Dovetail sights so if I get bored of the 3 dots I can put some trijicons or tru glo on it . Really good feeling piece. I also like it has the flat spring housing instead of the palm swelled. I'm quite impressed with it for the money.

The GI expert is the best 1911 for the money. Only Downside is the 1911A1 non-integral feed ramps.

Not familiar with non integral feed ramp. whats the problem? Cant it be fixed?

On newer 1911, the feed ramp is part of the barrel. On this gun, part of it is milled into the magwell.

Should feed fmj 100%. Flying ashtrays ....ie bucket mouthed HP and JHP maybe not.

yea I just saw that learning how to field strip it :( I probly would not have gotten it had I known. So this is no good for carry then . Cause ball ammo will run right through somebody into the innocent bystander behind them . GAHHHHH im sellin this piece ah range gun ****

Don't sell it, experiment with it.

If it'll run your desired brand of people killers, carry away.

Some folks say 100+ rounds .... F that. If it'll run 25 rds of your favorite carry brand, its good.

Shoot it with all kinds of ammo and carry it.

Don't forget not to leave idiot marks on the frame.

PS. Very nice.

The whole problem is I'm going to need wilson 47d mag to make it HALF way reliable before I can even test it to see if it will run my ammo of choice and I ONLY shoot that ammo Underwood so Im going to have to sink 67 or so bucks into the para BEFORE I even find out if it will shoot JHP :/ and I don't know if I'm comfortable with that and if it doesn't Ill have a whole box of ammo I cant use in any other gun .

Plus I hear that pitbull is quite a neat little gun and I get a 15-22 for plinking. tough call
