    I do not like the "series-80" setup, but overall, I am pleased with the Super Hawg I have.

    Customer service is pretty good.

    IMO, quality is on par for pricing.

    The old Para Ordnance company had a poor reputation and produced a lot of guns with that were sub-par.

    Recently, the company was bought out by the same corporation that owns Remington and a lot of other gun manufacturers and the name was changed to Para USA. Their quality has improved over the previous ownership.

    Personally, I think the Expert series guns are unimpressive. But the new Elite models and Black Ops are definitely worth considering.

    I think the Para G.I. Expert is a pretty impressive gun for the money. Mine is a accurate and reliable shooter and a good platform to upgrade and personalize to my liking. I have a lot of guns so the Para is gonna have to wait its turn. :)

    I'd also recommend the Para G.I. Expert. My buddy has one and he likes it just fine. I'd probably change the sights out on it though, he had an issue with his coming off while shooting.

    Tell the buddy to contact Para. Sights should not come off when shooting.
