Default New Para Elite Target On The Way!

Just got a call from a distributor that the first batch of the new Para USA Elite models have been received. The Elite models were introduced at the 2013 SHOT Show earlier this year and from the photos I've seen and the initial reviews from the press at the show, I knew I needed to give them a chance. The Elite Target that I ordered is an all stainless gun with a black IonBond frame and natural slide for a reverse two-tone scheme. Comes with a match barrel, adjustable target rear site and fiber optic front sight. The logos have been shrank and are done nice and classy as opposed to billboards on the sides of the slide. Since Para was bought out by Freedom Group last year (Freedom Group also owns Remington, DPMS, Bushmaster, Barnes Bullets, and a lot of other gun companies) I was waiting on their quality to take a turn for the better. I was never a fan of the old Para Ordnance company. These Elite models look a WHOLE lot different from the older Para guns.

Since there is little to no information on these guns, I'll try to do an unboxing review here. I should have the gun in a couple days.

Didn't know these had hit the market yet, hope it works out for you. I'm waiting to hear some reviews of the 10mm Hunter model soon.

This is the first batch that is hitting the market. This distributor said they only got in 27 of them.

I have my sales rep keeping an eye on the 10mm Hunter as well. I hope to be able to get one of those when they hit the market too.
