I recently purchased a para expert carry. I believe this model to be new for 2013. Its a 3inch model with a full size grip. This is the first para ive purchased but not the first 1911 ive owned. I am by no means a 1911 enthusiast but was looking for an off duty compact .45 and decided to treat myself to something other than a polymer framed auto. I chose the para over a remington and kimber. Now I understand that many 1911's require a "break in" period. I guess im a little concerned about any gun which doesnt fire reliably out of the box. I believe im past the break in period as the ftf's have been reduced to almost none.Has anyone had experience with this paticular model and if so what type of jhp's have you found to feed relaibly in this model. I apologize for redundancy if this has been addressed already but its my understanding that the 3 inch 1911's are a bit of a differnt animal than their full size counterparts.
