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 flush-fitting high-cap magazines, a huge step over the initial design. This pistol is the P10.45, it has a nice stainless finish, quick pointing three dot sights, accurate barrel, and a nice trigger. There has hardly any wear and the pistol has a lot of life left in it.
