Just wondering if the para GI expert 1911 was a great gun all around. I am concerned that for 549 dollars you get what you pay for. Most other 1911s are double this cost and are still considered mid grade. Thoughts please.
My Para G.I. Expert is a very accurate gun. Other than 3 or 4 failure to go completely into battery in the first 100 or so rounds it has been flawless. I chalked that up to break in. I think the sights are much better than standard G.I. sights you get on other models and I haven't had any problem knocking out the bullseye on my targets. My brother bought a Ruger about the same time I bought my Para and my Para is as accurate and reliable as the Ruger. I paid $499+tax for the Para and would do it again in a heartbeat. Plus its made in the USA if that matters to anyone, it does to me.
My buddy has one and he seems to like it well enough. It's a no frills 1911. The only thing I don't like about his gun is the two piece guide rod. Also, his rear sight came off while he was shooting it so he had to replace them.
