I have a P13.45 that had some jamming issues. Sent it back to Para and they polished the ramp and serviced the magazines but it would still jam (FTF) at least once every couple of magazines. Had hired a guy from Smith & Wesson when they were having some financial difficulties and he suggested changing out the return spring for something a little stronger. It's been pretty reliable since then but not perfect so it's just a range gun now. Have had offers on it but keep it because it shoots nice and I would feel guilty if it started having issues again after selling, even if disclosed before the sale.


Real dogs drool!

The p-10 is far from full size the recoil isn't bad my point was to stay on target in rapid fire takes some doing. Dumping the entire 11 rounds is easy hitting the target not so much !

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

True, 21' is my standard shooting distance w the XDs and I can easily place all 6 shots in a 5" circle w just my left hand at half a second cadence. Extend that to 25 yards w a fullsize pistol I'm sure I'd need a minimum of 10" circle, that's still kills w big ole .45 hollow points

I have a Para Ordnance P14-45 that I purchased back in the early 90s built in Canada. The pistol's very reliable,accurate,and a good shooter.

I took my CCW test with the Para w/16 round mags!....After emptying two mags out on the rapid fire test which was supposed to be 50 rounds,they told me I could stop shooting and I passed!....Brass was flyin'! LOL

It is a bit of a handful in rapid fire however you just have to hang on tight!
I have a Para P-10 that likes most ammo but Remington UMC 230 gr ball jams it every time.
