It's defiantly a Tango lower as it states it was made in Italy.

Yeah, its ugly and yeah im pretty sure. I took it to a ranger arms specialist friend of mine and he said the same thing. Its a pieced together gun made from 2 different guns. He is the one who said the top is para ordinance. No clue why he said that but thats what he knows and does so i believe him. It shoots really really nice and i guess thats all that really matters but im pretty sure i got a little ripped off on it. Oh well. It will work as my carry pistol until i can get a gp100 which is what i really want. Gotta love Arizona doing away with the ccw here. :P

Para Ordnance is a 1911 style pistol. They have the slide rails in the INSIDE. CZ-75's and their various clones have the slide rails on the outside. One cannot make a Para slide fit a CZ slide. If you were to machine rails on the outside of the slide,your would cut through completely.

I guess he is full of it then. I cannot argue in the face of logic. I took it out and hit a soda bottle lid first shot at 100 paces with open sites. Pretty accurate seeing that I'm not usually that great of a shot. Its ugly, probably not worth more than 300, but it does its job and that's all that matters.

As I recall, I believe Springfield Armory imported a CZ-75 clone from Brazil something like 20 yrs. ago before they were readily available from CZ. The photos suggest it was a Tanfolio frame and a Springfield slide with a single action trigger set up for IPSC competition. Scope mount mounted on the right side of the recoil spring cover now removed. People were loading them to make major at 175 with 9mm. Hot! I believe part of the attraction was the double column magazine before the Para ordnance and other wide body 1911s came along. They did well for a couple of years, then faded from the scene, replaced by wide body 1911s.
