New to this site and Para's in detail.
I have been shooting 1911's since the late
70's but this is my first Para.
I'm thinking about the 45 super, did a search
on this fourm a found some good info, but I would like to know your thoughts reguarding
this subject.
My new Para was built in 95' then put up, test fired only, yes I know the owner and builder. Built on a P14.45 frame, Nowlin barrel, Les Baer slide, all the b&w's that come on a custom job. Came with (5) new in wraper 15 rounder's and one with the gun, plus a full set of Erine Hill leather IPSC
era. Anyone want the leather e-mail me I'll
let it go cheap.
Does anyone have knowlege of long term 45 super test results? Other then adding a 28-32# spring kit and using the proper brass
and diligent reloading procedures what else
am I missing. Thanks for all your info in advance.

Keep the faith.

If it was my hand holding the gun, I would prefer a forged frame over the Para investment cast frame.

Put an extra power firing pin spring in, too. A Comminoli guide rod or a shock buffer may be a good idea, too.

I wouldn't reload the brass very many times with hot loads. Once is enough for me, then I relegate the brass to general use. I had a 45 case blow out once and it took a week to get all the brass fragments out of my nose.
