    i didnt see it on their web page anymore......anyone have one that works well?


    i got a new one in a trade 2 years ago and traded it before i shot it....the finish seemed to be way sub par and the trigger measured 9 pounds...i didnt feel like a project at that time......now i see one for sale localy for cheep. now im in the mood to do some work i think.........i know some say you can polish a turd but all you have is a shiny turd.......anyone here have a good story about the para..that might make me go for it...

    thanks
