    Well after a painfull 16 weeks my Para Ordnance finally came in.Irushed off to the range to see what it would do.Not to bad right out of the box didn't even clean it.SIghts need to be adjusted but I have time now.Post is the second target I shot 20 yards no adjustments.

    It always sounds like it takes forever to get a pistol back when you send it in. I had a friend at work who has a 3 1/2 Colt 1911, he sent it in and it took him forever to get it back. Had an extractor problem. But now it works flawlessly. But I understand. Sometimes they just need adjustment and such.

    Glad you got your new 1911. It even seems like it's been forever to me....

    Where are the pictures Kieran? Are you sure you got a new Para? Seems awfully fishy that there are no pictures. Are you certain you got a new 1911?

    Nice looking gun. Don't look like the sights need adjusted to me. You're hitting paper. Shoot it a few more times and that group will tighten right up. Did the Para function good for you?

    You sure its the sights I always shoot right on a new gun I think a matter of two things for me. Anticipation of the gun and trying to see if i hit where aiming. Once I'm ok with the gun I do ok.
