Our Assessment: Para-Ordnance has been cranking out double-stacked 1911’s like this since 1990 and with a wide reception from the competitive shooting circles, it has become commonplace to see 1911’s capable of carrying 13 round flush-fitting magazines, a huge step over the initial design. This one features a 4.25” barrel, three-dot sights, and stainless finish. This would make a fine home defense or carry pistol and with four included mags, just grab your favorite .45 ACP and hit the range! Please see our photos and good luck!
