Thank you Catbird and Derek. I'm trying to find out anything I can about these pistols, good, bad, or ugly.
My knowledge of 1911's is very limited. As stated in the thread I started below I have been looking for a 1911 style pistol for under $450.00.
Last night a family member offered to trade me a Para Ordinance wide body frame with a Remington slide for some items I have. I would have right at $400.00 in this deal so I'm thinking it is a good deal for me.
There seems to be a lot of solid info on this forum given in a friendly manner so I always come here when I'm needing info.
I'm hoping my family members take the several BIG hints I've dropped and I get Mr. Camp's 1911 book for my birthday in May.
