I've been looking at .45's lately, there's not much to choose from in my country. I was going to get a Para Ordnance, but I just found out that a local gun shop is importing Sigs, which hadn't been available here for a while (with a few exceptions). And the price is great compared to my other options ($1200, Paras are $1650, a Glock costs around $1000 just for reference). Although I'm not in love with the accesory rail thingy, I like everything else about this gun. Would you guys recommend it as my first 1911?
