Para Ordnance Slides

We are very excited about our recent purchase from Para Ordnance. We purchased over 150 variations of slides! These include standard models, discontinued models, overruns and custom variations. This is the perfect opportunity to get a replacement or conversion slide for your Para or 1911, or build that special custom gun built on a 1911 frame. You can also change pistol length or caliber, as well as upgrade your sights. Thanks 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.

NOTE ON PARA SLIDES :  9mm, 40 S&W, & .38 Super slides are interchangeable. They all use the same breech face.


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 it 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 available.
