I when to a expo last week and had the chance to shoot several 1911's from different manufactures and the three I like best where all Para's. This week I stopped by the range a laid down some money on a new Para LTC.

It was so tight...the magazine had to be forced into the gun.

That is one custom ****ing gun.

I've had several springfields and been happy with all. The latest is a Mil-Spec.
They have a custom shop, too. I got a wild hair and sent the gun in to polish and blue the flat surfaces. Looked great!

Then I got tired of hammer bite and sent the gun to the custom shop to have their Loaded Package installed (about $700). Looks and works great!

That's not uncommon for a new mag in a new gun. I had to short my Kimber's magazines 1 round for the first couple hundred rounds just to get them to go into the pistol. Once the mag springs and mag release were broken in, there weren't any problems any more.

No this was not the springs.

This was the width of the mag ITSELF.

That's just asinine. Your life may depend on quick magazine changes and a pistol that is purposely built that tight hinders that ability. I wouldn't pay $2k for a pistol that may get me killed.
