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 14 round flush-fitting magazines, a huge step over the initial design. This is their P14.45 with a government-length slide and barrel. This one looks to have seen little use and looks great. This would make a great gun for competition and would also make a fine duty, home defense, or target shooting pistol. Please see our photos and good luck!
