Default Para 1911

This might seem kind of vague, but can some
one give me some intel on para ordinance 1911s track record as far as reliability, customer service ect. I got offered one in a trade and am not sure if I should go for it, the trade would be for a Ruger SR22 SC rifle.

My personal experience.
No problems so far with customer service. The one Para I have has been reliable (so far).

It's the bottom 2 tone pistol, I don't know much about 1911s. What is it worth?

I would check the on-line auctions sites like gunbroker.

They could give you a better idea on the approximate value.

But the biggest question is "Is it worth the trade for you to get it?"

A good deal is when both walk away with a smile.

Assuming both pistols are in good shape I'd make that trade. I like the Para 45s.

Sorry, I just saw SR22. I'd still make the trade though.

I've had a para p18-9 ordered for about 2 months. Not real sure where it is at, but if you end up with it let me know how you like it.
