Last November my wife got me a 7.45 LDA as an early Christmas preasent. I had wanted one ever since I saw the first magazine articles about it in Handguns and Guns and Ammo, as I like the Government Model design but out of necessity have become used to (and now actually prefer) a DAO trigger over the past eight years. The gun was extremely accurate out of the box, shooting one hole groups at 15 yards. The only problem I had was that to center my shots on the target, I had to drift the rear sight so far over to the right that the sight actually extended past the side of the slide. The gun shot right to point of aim but the rear sight was so far over as to be distracting to my eye. I then got the bright idea to have Bo-Mar sights installed. I won't go into the details of the installation, as any dispute arising from it were thoroughly and professionally resolved by the gunsmith, but in the end the slide, while perfectly acceptable for target work, was unusable for my purposes (I wanted the gun for plainclothes/off duty carry). I contacted Para and explained the situation to them. They immediately issued a return authorization number to me and advised me to return the entire gun to have a new slide fitted. I sent the gun, along with a letter of explanation, out UPS next day air (even though their service facility is in the same state about 100 miles north of my residence). To my surprise I received a call from Larry from Para customer service the morning the gun arrived at. We spoke at length about the problem, and he advised the gun would be repaired (slide replaced). Larry also followed up with two additional phone calls to advise me that while the gun was there, upgraded parts had beeen installed, and a missing part had been replaced (loss of the part was not Para's fault). They even offered to install a Limited model slide on the gun so I could have adjustable sights! All this work was performed and the gun shipped back to me at substantially less than I would have paid had I ordered the slide myself, even though none of the problems were caused by Para! Larry at customer service was extremely helpful in this matter, and kept in touch with me throughout the process. In a world where most companies seem to care little about their customers, I must commend Para-Ordnance for their first rate service. They have another loyal customer! As an end note, the gun shoots superbly, is extremely accurate, and is utterly reliable (when used with good magazines). I have read complaints about the finish on Para pistols not holding up, but my gun does not exhibit this problem. Keep up the good work Para-Ordnance!
