Nice 1911 50caliber...
Ok so I stop by my local gun shop to ask about a para ordnance expert see if they can get me one and how much.the sales guy gives me an attitude and tells me that he won't deal with para because they have a lot of problems..then he tells me if I want to buy a real gun buy the kimber sts...I tell him that i'm considering the kimber but the limited 1 year warranty is holding me back and that para has a lifetime warranty...he tells me if I want to buy a warranty by the para, if I want to buy a real gun that's gonna last a lifetime buy the kimber.now I don't know if he is telling me the truth or just trying to make a quick sale because the kimber is in stock. ...any suggestion? ???

simple. find another gun store to do business with. i don't care if i'm buying a gun, a truck or a power drill. when the salesman is pushing something too hard, i walk. and yes, this guy is pushing too hard. the Para is as much a real gun as the Kimber and the salesman is poorly informed or needs to dump his Kimber. when i buy something it's for my benefit, and not for the benefit of who's selling it.

I don't care for the Para Expert line. If you were comparing a Para Expert to the Kimber, then I would agree that the Kimber is the better gun. Now the Para Elite models are much better. I would still go for the Kimber, but Para Elite also has a target model and it's a full stainless gun too but they have IonBond on the frame. I had one and did a review on there about this time last year.

If you can manage another $100, the STI Trojan is a good choice. Built completely in Georgetown, Texas.....doesn't get much more American than that.

Dawson Precision has them in stock at the moment for @$1100. Yeah, I know that you wanted to stay under $1000, but it is an awesome pistol.

No, I'm not affiliated with STI or Dawson. But I do own 3 STI 1911's now as well as a Sig Stainless Steel Carry 1911.

the STI pistols are great and very well made pistols without a doubt. a bit under appreciated since they don't advertise like other brands. but every one i have seen to date has impressed me quite a bit.

The STIs have a reputation for having a thin finish that shows wear quickly.

I dont have alot of exp with 1911 style guns, but i do have a Kimber Pro Raptor (not full size) that i bought about a year and a half ago. 400 rnds thru her, nice gun, no problems. But my bff RG has the SR1911, love shooting that gun, if i had it to do over, i would buy the SR. The Kimber is too heavy to be a good CC gun for me when it's loaded, and not a great target/range gun either, so it's really just a "safe queen" at this point.
