Man I'm telling ya. I see the things in shops and they fly off the shelves. Yet I hardly ever see one selling used. Maybe these junk Para's are just poofing in a cloud of dust and there's nothing left? Every now and then I hear someone saying they are no good but they never come up with why they are no good. The last one I heard that didn't like was more about price than quality. Are they the best? Hell if I know, There's all kinds of 1911's out there and a lot of really good ones. I think that comes down to personal preference when you are dealing with well made pistols. But they are very good and I'd love to own a couple more.

But, I guess a hater is going to hate and with no logical argument as to just how they are no good I would consider the opinion useless.

I've had a ton of 1911 type pistols over the years. Two I have kept are Para Ord pistols. I'm still a Springer man at hart but but I have mad love for a Para. Now I have to take my LTC out back and make some noise. I got Para fever and only a box or two of soon to be spent ammo will cure me.

I bet people are saying their bad so they don't buy them. More for them. Lol. I've not ever owned one but the price is attractive.

There is a reason you don't hear much. They are crap compared to other manufacturers. Lousy CS.

I am sure you will like the opportunity to enlighten us on your experience with para and other manufacturers. And what differences there are with the para and other manufactures that make them crap ?

After taking a look at the advertisement of the Black Ops, I noticed it has a rail.
Which holsters and mag carriers are you looking at?

I have buddy that makes Kydex holsters so that's not a issue for me but I wonder if the Serpa holsters for then PT1911 would fit it?

I had a para 1911 stock service pistol. Had 1 failure to feed during break in and ran great after that. I'd like to have a black ops myself. Good choice so go for it. I've priced the power extractors from para and they're about 60 dollars but I've read where they don't break like the normal extractors do.
