The Handgun That

wave of Firepower
Prior to 1988, you had a tough choice: you could
opt for the power of a traditional 1911, with the
limitation of a 7-round magazine; or you could
choose a high-capacity Wonder Nine with a
far less potent cartridge. Nobody in the firearms
industry came up with a solution until PARA
rewrote the book on the 1911 firepower with the
introduction of its double-stack .45 ACP frame.

The frame was redesigned with built-in plunger


tubes and grip bushings, leaving no possibility of
the loose or lost parts that plagued the old Model
1911 design. Frame wall thickness around the
slide stop hole was made 20% greater for extra
strength under stress.

PARAs pistol design incorporated more features


than John M. Browning had ever envisioned. The
double-column, tapered PARA magazine offered
inherently superior and more reliable feeding
characteristics and, coupled with a beveled
magazine well, ensured faster, surer and more
instinctive reloading. The ejection port was flared
for consistently reliable operation, and the safety
features included a positive slide lock safety, a
P1445 grip safety, and an internal firing pin block. The
