Para GI Expert photos

Reader tehmino emailed me photos of his new Para-Ordnance GI Expert pistol. The GI Expert is a new entry level 1911 from Para USA. Click to expand the photos. UPDATE: tehmino has modded his pistol, which I should have realized (It was a late night), I have added a couple of photos of a non-modded below (Thanks Todd and Caleb, for the correction).

From GunBroker with a “buy now” of $529.

Photos of newly released gun “in the wild” are also better than those marketing photos. If you are the proud owner of a gun launched in the past 6 months, please email me some high-res photos for the blog.

Many thanks to tehmino for the photos.

    I do believe any holster that will fit the full size 1911 will also fit any of the double stack models. They are the same gun except for the double stacked

    The latest Para GI Expert models are coming nitrided (think Glock's tenifer) from the factory. That's very innovative for a 1911.
