I was thinking about a Para GI Expert for an entry level 1911. I had looked at them awhile back, but put it on the back burner. I know all about the 'made in Canada' argument. I do know they had moved to Pineville,NC and later sold to another company. Freedom maybe? I do like their 'power extractor'. I've also heard about the mushy polymer trigger and the finish on the pistol flaking off if it gets bashed around. Is there any truth to all of this? Opinions please. Thanks. Stay safe.
