A good friend had this dropped off at my house today. He said he is getting a lot of stove pipes. He said look at it and if I don't see what is wrong take it to the gunsmith. I am under the impression that the pistol is new to him. That is all the info I have, huh. I tore it down and it was dirty and dry. I cleaned it and lubed it with Silver Bullet Gun Oil, a tad on the heavy side, and will give it a try with some factory 230gr. ball later this week. I see nothing wrong and it shows very little wear indicating to me it hasn't been shot very much. It is listed as a 10 round but it has two of those extended mags that must hold close to 15 rounds. The mags don't show much wear either. They sure are a handful even in my large hands. Have any of you any experience with these Paras. Do they normally need a break in period? No other mags for me to try and I don't know what he was using for ammo but knowing him I doubt it was reloads. He shoots enough powerful handguns that I doubt he was limp wristing or any thing like that. Will see what a box of good stuff does.
