This is an amazing hand gun and is a pleasure to shoot. As expected out of the box it had issues, the magazine was very tight and both the gun and magazine had factory grease. First time to the range I fired 150 rounds and I had failure to feed, stove pipe, and failure to eject almost every mag. Second time after a heavy cleaning and lubrication I fired 350 rounds and only had 3 few failures to feed.
As advertised, this gun is built with very tight tolerances to be accurate. You will need to put 500 rounds minimum as stated in the manual for the black ops to work 100%. One trick that I think helped out a lot, was I loaded and unloaded the magazines every day for one week. This relieved the tension on the spring enough to where I was able to load the 14th round without a lot of effort. Even more expensive 1911â€™s need to be broken in.
As far as shooting and ergonomics go, because of the weight of the gun there is very little felt recoil. The G10 grips are thinner than a standard 1911 grips so even with a double stack magazine, the grip isnâ€™t that much wider and feels like a standard 1911. The trigger after a few hundreds rounds is nice and crisp.

I really enjoy my new Para Recon. I am using it as a duty weapon replacing a Sig p220. I was a little disappointed when I first shot it as it had a jamming problem with ball ammunition, but was impressed with its accuracy right out of the box. I was expecting this problem with the reviews I had read and was ready for this problem. I took it to a gunsmith and had the ramp polished and no further malfunctions. I have put about 500 rounds through it now and it works like a champ. I was also impressed by Hinterland Outfitters for the great price and fast shipping. I received my weapon within 5 days after providing the FFL dealer and that included a Saturday and Sunday. Thanks again for the great service.

Pistol has everything it advertises. Have taken it to the range twice with multiple FTF issues with 2 different magazines (Para, Mec-Gar) using cheap WWB/Blazer FMJs. Have 2 other single stack 1911s that have never had a problem. Hoping more break-in time will solve my problems. Noticed magazine hangs down a bit????

Para has done an excellent job with this pistol. It has the heft necessary to maintain recoil reduction and has the 14+1 capability that the company is famous for. The match grade barrel and attention to detail make this the perfect pistol for the connoisseur. I found the accuracy to be impeccable. 30 yd shots within 1.5", repeatedly, out of the box. I was and am amazed with the pistols flawless function and excellent ergonomics. Hinterland once again has performed amazingly well too! No problems, excellent prices, perfect customer service and follow through. I could not ask for more. Awesome company to do business with. Para U.S.A. and Hinterland are both here to stay. Excellent product, excellent service. I recommend this pistol highly. I also recommend Hinterland - they are the first choice for my firearms purchases. Superb!

This handgun not only looks good, but it feels good and shoots good too!
The 14 round capacity only makes the grip 1/8" wider.
It comes with everything you need right out of the box.
Night sights and they even throw in an extra 14 round mag.
I shot 100 rounds with no problems. It is very accurate.
I love my new Para Recon and you will too!
