I have a lightly used 40 S&W double stack Remington 1911 R1 that I have a few questions about.
Is this the same pistol as the Para Ordinance pistol, if so, what model ?
If I remove the large mag well from the Remington pistol, can I use Para after market mags (10 or 15 rd) in the Remington ?
What after market mags are the best ?

Thanks for any help

Yes, it's a Para. Specifically the P16-40 Limited. Any Para Mags should work with it if the magwell is removed. Depending on the dimensions of the magwell, they might work anyway.

^^ what Mike said. Should have no issues with any former Para aftermarket product fitting. However, might have some challenges finding them. Para kind of lost its edge over a decade ago, and by now most inventory has been consumed. Maybe if Remington gets the poop in one sock, a new demand can emerge.
