Bought my new Para P1445 1911 a couple of weeks ago. Bought it online from Bud's. To date, the only thing I've done to it is replace the factory grips with Pachmayr grips. I've got big hands and the Pachmayr's make a gun fit nicely in my hand. I've had it on the range a couple of times. Put about 300rds through the pipe. Not even a hiccup. Gun shoots reeeally nice!! I do plan to install a mag well on this unit. A bit scared because it has to be Smithed and have 1/8 of an inch shaved off in order to accommodate the mag well.
