    I wouldn't trade an HK for a Para anything, that's just me though.

    people complain a lot about taurus, I believe para-ord is worse than taurus.

    I have a P14-45 that I like very much, so IMO, I would do the trade.

    I wouldn't. I think you'll regret it.

    From what I've seen, Para's quality is spotty whereas HK quality is spot on. :)

    No way in hell.

    While totally different, HK is about three times the quality level of Para.


    ...and, BTW, the Para 14 is no 1911.

    Well I think that's a good choice.

    I've fired a Para with the LDA trigger before and would not trade an HK for it. It belonged to the owner of my local indoor range...

    He had previously had the hammer break off the gun during live fire and had just gotten it back from repair. :shocked:

    All I want to know now is how you got a tan HK45c??? :supergrin:

    This would be a hard choice for me. I love my Para but I have never shot an HK that didn't amaze me.

    I bought the HK45C in Tan when they had a gunshow come through Idaho, I paid like 200 over retail for the gun. I could never find the tan one anywhere and saw it there without any intentions of buying a gun and ended up blowing 1200 on it. I usually wouldnt do that but I had the HK45 and loved it just hated the size so yeah... I haven't shot the gun at all, its like the prized toy you dont want to unpackage!!!

    It's a god thing you passed. You'll be better off selling the H&K and get a better quality 1911, especially since you'll get more for it since the USP is stainless,

    I have never seen a factory tan HK45c before. You may have something very special there. :)
