I hope not :bawling: I'd have to re-think about how many posts I should do on monthly basis then, so that I can stick around. :biglaugh:I think I get a bill from the site owners ....
Strange problems Did you have to adjust the grip screw "O" rings to get it working?I learned most of this the hard way. I inherited a Commander about 9 years ago, and finally got around to shooting it some years later. (Long story.) Anyway, it had some strange problems, and I had to learn how to keep it going. Hanging around here and John's board was a very big help.
Ahh, those darn Dremel tools... Don't tell anyone, but I have one. However, spoons are still my preferred way to stir coffee with.The big thing to learn is that Dremels are for stirring coffee :biglaugh: .
djoem:I sent my gun back to para they changed the inner recoil spring tested with 7 rounds and sent it back. I shot another 200 rounds and had 2 FTF it cost me 50.00 to send the gun and i requseted to get paid for the shipping they told how did i get my gun back so i said you sent it he said so we are even then. how do you like that. I spent 2 hours on the phone with corporate. these are the things they told me
I'm an old (and essentially retired) rent-a-cop. The badge doesn't make you a firearms expert. I met a kid from a nearby PD who had really never handled a 1911. His Chief liked Glocks, and that was that.... (If you buy a 1911, though, you tend to become a bit more educated. )1- my problem is shooter fatigue no one can shoot 100 round at a time with a small barrel with out limp wristing , i had 3 leos shot it with me.
I really don't understand that.... 800-1200 rounds is right on the money for the recoil spring in this gun. However, they now sell the spring assembly as a complete package - both springs, guide rod, and the little bushing, at Brownells, for about $30. I don't think you can even get the outer spring, although Brownells may still have some. 'Tis kinda silly not to just do 'em both, but if the gun's brand new, there may have been a reason, and the outer spring can take a little more. I assume this is a brand new gun, in which case, I wouldn't worry about that....2- i need to replace recoil spring every 800 to 1200 rounds now they replaced the inner recoil spring so i told him why didnt they replace the whole recoil spring while it there the outer is not there responibility
Nonsense.... On Para's part.... A new gun needs at least 100 rounds, these days, to get the bugs out.... Para's seem to be really tight lately (at least my CCO was), and you just have to work 'em in. I don't think I'd have let that gun out of my shop (if I had one) without running at least a couple magazine-loads through each magazine supplied.3- when i sent my gun in the first time i requested that they run a at least 100 rounds they put 7 rounds so i told him how can you tell me its ok with only 7 rounds so para told me send them money for the ammo and they will put 100 rounds
I'm afraid to ask how they got that off.... The tech guy should have offered to put one in the mail....4-Then i get the gun back and the para emblem on the grip is gone
Under the circumstances, you probably don't have much choice, however I'm too cheap .... IAC, you're still at the outer edges of the break-in range, IMHO. (I'm kinda patient. Sorry....)I told him the customer service sucks and i wouldnt trust my life with this
i told him i would rather lose money and sell it then carry this he said dont sell it send it back and we can test it again. i told him to replace the gun he said no not fair to para so i am gonna dump it on gun broker with my dealer and buy a glock or sig and have no worrys
