Re your comment, the Browning Hi-Power is a nice [pistol, I’ve had one since 1967.That said, the triggers are terrible, and the magazine safety, easily removed, was not worth the effort. Don’t know why anyone would specify one.
I have a pair of Rock Island 22TCM high-cap pistols, one Commander size and one full-size. The larger one I bought in tactical configuration – it has a full-length dust cover rail and Novak rear sight. I converted both guns to Tru-Glo sights. The magazines are not interchangeable due to one having a magwell, but the mags are made by Mec-Gar and I understand that for the Commander size gun they are the same as one of the Para mags (P-08?), but with modified feed lips for the TCM cartridge. Both guns shoot 9mm like they were made for them… Read more »
I am a die stac 111 fan since the first Para Ord. Gunsmith kit frame was feted in the last 80’s, ad currently owns a no
longer available Springfield Armory double stack 1911 and two RIA double stack 1911’s.
But, with this new Remington offering I will wait awhile to see if it turns out to be another turd from Remington.
You all remember the R51, don’t you ?
Where did you study grammar? What point are you trying to make? And, did you proof read before hitting send? So I assume your point is you will wait before purchasing one of the double stack Remington.
I own a Para 15/45 and have had warranty issues that Para handled painlessly. Will Remington honor the Para warranty or am I sxxx out of luck?
As a happy long-time owner of a Para 14.45, I’m glad to see that pistol re-incarnated as a Remington
Maybe the Warthog will be next!
I made a mistake in earlier post. The original Para USA Black ops has now been rebranded as the Remington R1 Tactical (not as a the R1 Black Ops as I previously wrote).
This is a good one. One of the biggest reasons that many people refuse to carry 1911’s today is because the typical antique style 1911 holds just 7 or 8 rounds in the magazine. Modern pistols almost always have double stack mags and hold twice the ammo of an antique style 1911. In the 1980’s ParaUSA began building double stack 1911’s that literally doubled the magazine capacity of the 1911 to that of any other modern pistol on the market today. Around 2015 Remington bought ParaUSA and moved them to their new production facility. It has taken a few years,… Read more »
@mac, Typo forgiven! Is this the exact same double action design as the 14.45? Can Remington screw up an otherwise perfect design?
I see that Remington has taken a perfect combat handgun, and turned it into a .45 target pistol. Maybe a guy could replace the target sights. What else have the genius, MBA, corporate profiteers at Remmington done to it? Re-engineered it end-to-end for maximum profit margin? And what is this “…building on two centuries of American ingenuity…”, author Duncan Johnson? The Para Ordinance was a Canadian design.
Maybe not well known, but Canada is actually American too, as is Mexico. America refers to the continet, now the words United States, may be harder to say, and /or rhyme with, but that is our countries real name. ( don’t want to offend our Canadian neighbors)!
There is only one “America” that is the United States of America. Legendary in song and story. America the Beautiful did not include Mexico or Canada.
Canada and Mexico are part of the Americas, as is S. America and Latin America. The Americas are a global region synonymous with the New World.
It may surprise a number of people but the fact is that Canada is also American. As also Mexico. While it is harder to say and even more difficult to rhyme with our country is legally known as “The United States”. I only point this out so that we do not upset our neighbors to the North. America refers to the Continent, which hosts a few other countries, and members of each of those have the right to claim to be American, just as us lucky few that live in the U.S.A. do. (I just do not want to see… Read more »
Sorry Paul, just because you want to change the meaning to suit yourself and some hidden agenda, does not mean that the world will change for you. Merry Christmas.
DOUBLE ACTION or DOUBLE STACK. Are you mixing metafores?
I don’t know anything about the ” new ” R 1 remington 15.45, but para had a double action, double stack model for awhile. Called the LDA or light double action 14.45. Don’t see many around any more.
@OV, The Pickens Ranch is for sale?! Have you got a phone number?
Well, at that price he can keep it awhile longer. LoL Merry Christmas.
How much wider is the grip to accommodate the double stack mag?
I would expect that the new pistol’s grip would be 1.5 times, give or take a little, wider than that of single stack pistols of same caliber.
I agree it’s a good one however, there is nothing wrong with an 8 round magazine 1911 in a standard format. Up until recently MARSOC has been using them and for the past 30+ years successfully. When the carbine goes down or a smaller weapon is required the 7-8 rounds mags in 45 Auto work just fine in real world combat: in trained hands. The folks who don’t train as much in small arms proficiency get bigger magazines to compensate for a lack of training. In any case the standard 1911 is the ultimate carry combat pistol due to it’s… Read more »
“When the carbine goes down” is the operative phrase here. Most regular citizens use the pistol as their only defensive firearm, not as an adjunct to a carbine or an Abrams. Most ordinary citizens also don’t carry any spare magazines, so seven, eight, or nine rounds is all they have. Those rounds get used up real quick when three or more miscreants are attacking you. If you want to keep your heavy, obsolescent, low-capacity pistol, be my guest, it’s America and you can do what you want. I can think of quite a few reasons to go double-stack, even though… Read more »
@Gentlemen, I used to carry a big pistol and extra mags around while doing my ranch chores. They were constantly in the way and got really filthy in just a short time.So, I went to a small revolver. It was really in the way, and got really filthy. I went to a North American Arms .22 in a plastic sandwich bag. It wore a hole in the bag and got really filthy.
So, what one carries is kind of a sliding scale of experience and prognostication.
I honestly couldn’t imagine Remington being capable of making any type of “design improvements” on anything Para originally made. Particularly any of their original double-stack designs.
I’ve proudly owned several Para’s in different configurations/calibers etc., for several years and the only thing I’ve found lacking was their finish treatments, particularly on their flat black finished pistols. Whatever it was they used at the time of manufacture turned out to be completely ineffective.
If Remington utilizes the same cover treatment they do on their new 1911’s, I just might have to further investigate.
@thenewbreed – “Design improvements” is engineering “double speak” for ways corporate engineers figure out how fabricate a product a less cost but not pass the savings on to you. LOL
