Para longslide hunter 10mm
« on: June 06, 2013, 01:59:04 PM »
Got an email today from Tim Fusetti at Para-USA,  the longslide will be in stores in "late August or early September". It does have a ramped barrel. Msrp $1249.00 for those that may want to know.

I haven't gotten into the 1911 style guns at all, closest is the S&W & the Bren Ten.

Certainly looks very nice. I actually didn't realize there was any other kind of auto pistol barrel other than ramped. Examples of non-ramped auto pistol barrels?

Always very pleased to see another 10mm choice, although I must say that in a 1911-type gun I'd stick with the EAA Hunter--although they really missed the boat with the goofy square trigger guard. Internally, the trigger however looks about as 1911 as it gets and of course you get your 15 rds. Not that I can imagine too many pistol hunters would see 15 rd capacity as anything but a heavier gun to carry.

Used to be no one could build a pistol without a hook on the trigger guard, now no one can build one without a tac' rail on the frame. :)

Thanks for getting that posted Shadow, they gave no further info that is not on the website. At least we have another one. I do not care for the front site although it is functional. I still hope the quality control has improved since the move to NC, they have had issues. I did see that they are looking for a quality control manager on the net. I am still curious about this gun though. I have never owned a Para so .......

The square trigger guard was for hunting. Put those thick gloves on and still room  ;D

Delta Elite would be one, as are most 45 acp 1911's. 

However this is just terminology.  In point of fact all 1911 barrels do have a feed ramp.  What is meant by a ramped barrel is actually a ramp-less frame.

Always happy to see a new addition to the 10mm family.

Maybe we should put the Department of Agriculture in charge of immigration.

Good looking piece.  For me though, I see it as a sweet hunter or target shooter, but for self defense have no interest in limiting myself to 10 rounds or less (less in this case) per magazine in a full-sized platform.  Even my G29 commonly has a fully loaded G20 magazine in it.  Always pros and cons depending on intended use.  Just one mans opinion. :D
Gun Control?  Oh yes, the theory that becoming a victim is somehow morally superior to defending yourself & your family.  Makes perfect sense.

Redline, you and I think alike.  I do carry my G29 with the 10 rounder, but have a 15 rounder with me.

And of course my Para is 16+1 with a 17 round second mag with me.  And that is my carry gun 90% of the time.

Another sub-10 round capacity 1911. When are these manufacturers going to figure out that you can in fact design a 1911 to hold 15 rounds of 10mm??  ???

That right there has kept me away from the Delta Elite and other 1911's...I have been so close to getting an EAA and just couldn't pull the trigger on that deal!  :-\

I think they would do the 10mm fans a favor in doing so.

I also think they might have a hard time manufacturing enough to meet demand (a good thing).

Most excellent tutorial/photos, sqlbullet...thanks. Not something I've thought about much, clearly.

Yeah Wade, stop collecting those Smith's and git you the EAA, I don't think you'll be sorry. :)

However, there is a sweet Model 1086 over at gunbroker I don't think you have yet.

Remember home state STI and the Perfect 10.  14+1 or 17+1 depending on the mag. you chose.
