    Anyone got any thoughts? I recently purchased one.

    Know of any upgrades that would be good? Do they make good ccw? I have run about 400 rds through it w no glitches.

    If a firearm of mine is working good with no glitches, then I would not change it.

    Replacing parts normally requires some fitting. Why waste the time and money?

    Good idea, and I will take it. I am a bit of a tinkerer at times, but that advice just makes good sense. Thanks.

    Ive had mine for a few months. I have a few hundred trouble free rounds downrange as well. Ive thought about upgrades but its a damn good shooter and everything works fine so I will leave it alone for the moment. Great american made 1911 for the cash.

    Very nice piece. Was back at the gun store today eying Remington 1911 w threaded barell.

    Bought belt conceal holster for para. Trying to get used to carrying it. Feels ok in holster, but dosent conceal as well as I had hoped, maybe I just haven't found the right placement.

    Large guy, multiple back injuries, so carry all way in back not an option.any ideas besides baggies clothes?

    Determined this is my carry piece.

    If something works do not try to fix it.

    I have had my Para for couple of months and love it. I think that the only thing that I would change is to add a pair of night sights.

    What type of holster did you get? IWB or OWB? I am a large framed man as well, so as for larger clothes that is a must for carrying. Change the style of shirts you are using as well from solid to something that will break up the pattern.

    As for my holster, I use a Milt Sparks VM-II or my Galco Combat Master holster. I stand 6'1" and weight 270 now, I to injuried my back a couple of time and have had several surgeries on both of my shoulders, what helped me was stretching, physical therapy/weight/core training and losing weight. That latter part realy helped on my knees as well plus I did not have to purchase anymore baggie clothes.

    It is going to be a trial and err on finding what will work for you. Good luck.
