Thx I appreciate the insight, I think overall the XDM 5.25 will end up being my go to gun for range, home defense and occasional carry(open carry of course). Then I'll save til I can afford the 1911 of my dreams.

if you go 1911 the best ones are single stack.

On the shopping list, why no Glock 21 or 30?

Anyone wanting a seriously good pistol in a double stack configuration in .45ACP has to get some range time in with a Glock.

I am on my 2nd G21 in 20 plus years, and the G21 was why I sold a pistol I dearly loved, a Star PD, because of its capacity limitations.

I've owned a few Glocks, not my cup of tea. My girlfriend carries a G19 she loves it, I lean to the XD line and of course the 1911.

Haven't shot one, BUT the Para Black Ops 14.45 looks pretty bad-ass. I've held a few Para double stacks and they feel good to me. I'm a Glock 21 guy for the past 15 years and love it cuz I've put A LOT of rounds through it, but to each his own. BTW...have you seen the long awaited intro of the Glock G41 - long-slide .45 acp? I too have a XD long slide .45, but don't really like it.

Anyway, is $100-$200 really gonna stand in your way from getting the Black Ops? Come on. I just saw one new on Gunbroker for under a grand. If you're willing to spend close to a grand, keep looking and get the one you really want, rather than settling on something else to save $100.

I just picked up a new Para-USA 1911 Expert (all steel & made here in the USA, Charlotte, NC to be exact), cost me $650 +tax at my LGS. This thing shoots very well, take a look at it.

Just because its a 1911 pattern doesn't mean its problem free. There is a big reason colt and springfield have never bothered doubling up a 1911. The platform just doesn't lend itself to that style.

Do what ya want just giving my opinion and experience
Sorry Jon,But Springfield does make a double stack 1911 A1,and it's a great weapon. I've had mine for a long time,and have had a bunch of work done to it,but it was a fine shooting pistol before I did anything to it.
Para Ordnance makes several different frame sizes in a double stack mag configuration,and I also own a Para Tac Four 1911.It's also a fine weapon,and very reliable.
The only magazines that I've ever had problems with are the aftermarket brands. Both the Springfield and Para use Para Ordnance factory magazines,and they function perfectly in both of mine.

That's your opinion,and everyone has their own. I like both Single and Double stack 1911's.

I have a Para P-10 in SS and its one of my absolute favorites and one I carry most often.
I have no problem with the double stack in fact I think it makes the perceived recoil considerably less.
