at his rebel yell when the gun gets hot
He'd have a few more titles if his comp. Para's ran that reliably.
I heard Para had questionable QA, but a comp gun failed on him? Any links to an article or a video of this?
hot gunnnn... that's a hot gun..... wooooo!
Come on! Come on! I need a mag! Come on guys!
pretty sure that was 1,000 round in the video not 10,000
at the mag they gave him with only 2 rounds in it
Oh ya, 1k not 10k. 10k in 10 minutes would be crazy.
That was awesome.
God that guy is annoying.
i want some of whatever he's on
They should have used MagLULA's to load the mags. Idiots.
is it just me or does Todd Jarrett look like Phil Helmuth?
The gun locked back, someone didn't finish loading the mag before they handed it to him.
How come nobody really talks about Para on here yet they've apparently got a good enough product that Todd uses it....
I was wondering the same. I've very rarely seen discussion of Para 1911s.
probably not shenaniguns approved.
I like para's, I've owned a 14.45 in the past that gave me some troubles, then again anything you homesmith will.
I'm not fond of their PXT or the fact that there are facets of the gun that are proprietary, and expensive proprietary parts at that.
I know someone that has one with a VERY expensive trigger job that's smooth as silk. They have good high cap 1911's that are offered in non tradtional calibers. I'd prefer the older, pre-pxt in a .40 if I had to get one.
I like more traditional 1911's, and the fact that I have a boat load of spare parts already for them.
im glad someone else got that
at least their personalities are different.
phil FTMFW, though
Thats the big one for me. They took probably the most standardized pistol format in the world and started swapping in proprietary parts/fittings that are an "upgrade" in theory but often times more problematic in implementation... and then you are left with no viable alternative because it is a Para only part.
If you get a good one out of the factory, you'll have a good gun for a long time. But I've also read lots of horror stories about guns making several trips the factory and still never really being "right".
