Not sure what's the story, but googling Any variation of Para, para ordnance they all lead back to Para for life. My Para 1445 has paraordance written on the side, and now called black ops. You still can buy them, order them. I don't know about the Remington deal. I do know they have an active sponsorship for matches. Quality? 3k rounds, abused to hell 1445, I think it's reliable. The only version that I know of mechanical issues was the hawg 9. (9mm double stack comander size) Which sucks because that's exactly the setup I want, not getting one though.Thanks for the update, Mike. It's all kind of confusing, what with the terms Para Ordnance, Para-USA and just plain PARA still floating around. There is still a website active for " Para" giving the Huntsville address.Not clear to me why Remington bought them. I thought it was maybe to use their plant to produce 1911's but Para was in North Carolina and everything now seems to be in Huntsville. Just doing some research. A friend has a NIB Commander version I can get for about $500. It seems nice at first glance but have heard in the past about some Para quality control issues.
It goes back to that site because there is no more Para Ord. It's an old page that's no longer maintained (it will probably drop out when the site rental is over).Not sure what's the story, but googling Any variation of Para, para ordnance they all lead back to Para for life...You still can buy them, order them.
