We are very excited about our recent purchase from Para
Ordnance. We bought over 125 variations of slides. These include standard
models, discontinued models, overruns, and custom variations. This is a
perfect opportunity to get a replacement slide for your Para gun or add a
conversion kit to your Para or other gun, or build that special gun on a 1911
frame. You may also change pistol length or calibers. We have many options that
will also let you upgrade your sights. Do to the fantastic deal we got we can
offer these at outstanding bargain pricing. These are not rejects or returns;
it is remaining inventory from the change over from Para Ordnance to Para USA,
virtually all slides are new unused from old stock, however some slides are take-offs but still in excellent plus condition.
Build your own 3”, 3 ½” or 4” hi cap “snubby”. I think this
is the only 3” slide on the
market. We offer a completely finished new slide and one of
our wide body frame
castings in steel or aluminum for as little as $150.00, way
less than the regular price on
the slide alone.
GUIDANCE FOR YOUR PARA SLIDE PURCHASE
All our Para slides are cut for the series 80 type firing
pin interlock. Complete slides are built with series 80 parts and a Para/Clark ramped
barrel that will fit in 1911 frames that are modified for ramped match
barrels. You can build these up to work in standard U.S. G.I. 1911 type
(series 70) pistols if you wish, However doing so disables the safety
features of the series 80
Stripped single action slides will work on any standard
series 70 or 80, 1911 frame (series 70 is the standard 1911) when built with
the appropriate parts.
The Para LDA is a double action slide that will work only on
Para LDA frames. You can however cut the disconnector scallop in and use the
slide on any standard series 70 or 80 1911 frame.
The 6” and 5” slides use standard 1911 recoil spring plugs
and barrel bushing. The 4.25 inch
slides use Commander type recoil parts. The 3” & 3.5”
slides use a unique recoil mechanism that
is available commercially.
There are 2 variations of extractors used on these Para
slides. The first is the standard type which uses any standard .45 extractor.
The second is a PXT type. On this style the forward part of the extractor
support rib is slightly larger in diameter. We have read that people have used
G.I. extractors as they are the same diameter in the back. PXT extractors or
adapter bushings are available from other sources. We will also soon have these
