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.

    So, really, Remington has put its boot on the neck of another previously-respected brand and is going to kill it by applying their current level of build-quality, engineering, and development.

    Remember when Century Arms was the pinnacle of drunken-monkey-gunsmithing/gunbuilding? Seems like all those monkeys wear Big Green now.

      Hear hear! At least at the MSRPs shown, I’d get a Dan Wesson or heck, a gently used Les Baer. Not a double stack, but an actual quality gun not made by crayon munchers after they’ve fired all the original workers.

    Why was this so important as to warrant being posted three times?

      This happens with a lot of TFB articles. One original post (with picture) and two dupe posts that show up later with no image.

  • Brett baker

    Maybe this time they won’t blow it. Maybe.

  • Sam Damiano

    I’d rather get a 745 than a double stack. From the price you could get two guns instead a double stack, too.

  • Middleoftheright

    WIll they bring back the LDA trigger too?
