I have an early P-14 that I got many, many moons ago. It is my main carry gun. When I go out for serious practice, I usually cap around 500 rounds in a session. I have well over 30,000 rounds (conservitive) through this pistol. You can shake it and it has no rattles and still shoots well under 2" @25 yards. It has also been the most reliable 1911 I have ever owned.
The only things I have done to mine are, match bushing, full length recoil spring guide, extended safety, high grip extended beavertail with memory pad and large mag well.
I have also built many competition guns based on Para's wide body frames until STI started making their wide body frames. If you go with the Para, you won't be disapointed.
