Para Ordnance is BORN Again!… With a Remington Roll Mark on the Slide…


Many of us 1911 fanatics affectionately remember Para Ordnance for their high-quality, affordable pistol offerings. They satisfied a weak segment within the 1911 culture by making double-stack 1911s in multiple calibers that were not only aesthetic and cool-looking, but they flat out worked!

Not too long ago, Freedom Group bought and absorbed Para Ordnance effectively marking the end of the 1911 manufacturer… Until now… Sort of.

It was always believed and rumored that Remington would re-introduce the Para Ordnance line through their branding. It only made sense since the Remington line of 1911s bluntly lacks creativity and curb appeal. Well, now that time has come. Like a smoldering phoenix pistol rising from the ashes, we have Para Ordnance firearms once again (with a Remington rollmark).

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    More of us remember them as junk. Now made by even a lower quality manufacturer

    • Lead Kisses

      I second that.

      I never cared for the brand itself, but I did once a modified Para double stack magazine to fit in my old rare double stack Llama. So if nothing else, i guess the magazines are okay? :p

    FreeDUMB Group strikes again. Bad 1911 copies made by Canadians for Canadians is now being rebadged by one of the worse gun makers on the market.
