    May I solicit your suggestions on the following items for my Para P14LTD:

    1. trigger
    2. steel mag catch
    3. beavertail (no memory groove)

    Can you recommend brand and indicate suggested retail price? There seems to be too many 1911 parts out there, local and imported, and sales people at gunshops just dont know much about what they are selling.

    Eyecutter,

    Yes naka beavertail. But the memory groove, or the hump that they say was put there to ensure positive activation of grip safety, is unconfortable during extended firing sessions. Meron ba beavertail na wala memory groove?

    Wala ako tiwala sa grip safety, ewan ko, abnormal ata yung kamay ko eh.

    yep, i find the bump uncomfortable also. Since frame kit yung Para ko, I chose to put an ed brown high grip model w/o the memory groove. I also had it pinned like kay fafa allegra. Madali naman tanggalin yung pin.

    pa grind off mo na lang sa gunsmith. kayang-kaya i-blend yun.

    1. Trigger - I installed Kings Lightweight trigger (black, w/ 3 holes). Probably around 2T.

    2. Steel Magcatch - Ed Brown SS magcatch for Para, around 2.5T. I saw one at PB mas mura 2T.

    3. Beavertail - Wilson combat high ride beavertail. Around 3.5T sa Final Option MCS.With hump, easy to grind off (make flat).

    Isa pa Pards, palitan mo rin yung barrel bushing. Para's barrel bushing is crap. EGW barrel bushing (angled thick flanged, .580in ),almost drop in na (konting filing & liha lang) pero very tight yung fit, match fit sa barrel & slide.Around $30 online sa EGW, pag-order mo kuha ka na rin nang 1911 sear sa kanila, super hard (the hardest so far, around 56Rc ).;)

    ang urban daw di member ng AFAD so they can price their iterms much as they want. so usually mas mababa kesa sa mga AFAD member stores.

    Sir grinder at kikil(file) lang ang katapat nyan. Then sand it down with 600 to 800 grit sand paper. If its made from stainless steel rub it with a metal polish for the smooth appearance.;)

    Ano ba'ng pinag-uusapan nyo rito? Para'ng mey na-aamoy ako'ng metal shavings. ;f;f

    1. Trigger - consider the inter-changeable inserts ng SV. No personal experience yet on this part but the concept makes for a perfect trigger. Or the STI gunsmith trigger tulad nung SPS ni Judge.

    2. Mag catch - Ed brown. Consider also the type na tap and drilled na. Baka later on you might decide to get a button. Or better yet, buy the one that already has a button.

    3. Beavertail - what everybody said about the hack..este, removal of the bump. At this point I'm guessing you'd want it pinned, right?

    ;)

    Hi Bogs:

    What is your comment on Para's power extractor of the 2004 models? Do you think its worth the additional 8-10K cost when compared with the 2003 version? Thanks in advance for your inputs.

    The regular extractor on my old Para works great but it did loose its tension after quite a number of rounds (sorry i don't keep count:)). The only drawback from the Power Extractor that i can see is that you'd have a problem finding a replacement if it ever breaks. Hindi katulad ng regular extractor na madaling makahanap ng kapalit.

    I agree Paul. It seems Para's decision to upgrade to the power extractor has a significant "business" slant to it. I bet it can be hard to find and expensive too. :( Thanks!

    Dre, kung gusto mo power extractor, I suggest you get the aftec. If not, Ed Brown or Wilson is more than sufficient assuming your 1911 timing doesn't let the bullet over-run the claw. Kung gusto mo talaga mura for something to experiment with, Armscor. Akin until now buhay pa rin. ;);f
