PARA Offers Classic P14-45 in Stainless

Pineville, NC - The P14-45 is the pistol that rewrote the book on .45 ACP high capacity fire-power. You can always use more ammo...and the best place to have it is in the pistol in your hand. 1911 aficionados loved the stopping power of the .45 ACP cartridge and the great ergonomics of John Browning's Government Model pistol but the yearned for the impressive magazine capacity of the Wonder Nines.

PARA's introduction of the P14-45 solved that problem. Model 1911 pistol owners no longer had to compromise, and could enjoy an increase in magazine capacity-from 7 rounds to 14 rounds. But PARA did not stop with creating a high capacity 1911 frame. It improved the design at the same time.

The frame was redesigned with built-in plunger tubes and grip bushings, leaving no possibility of the loose or lost parts that plagued the old Model 1911 design. Frame wall thickness around the slide stop hole was made 20% greater for extra strength under stress. Always the quest at PARA has been to give its customers the best, so they incorporated a ramped barrel with supported chamber into the new pistol.

Last year PARA brought back its famous high capacity 1911 pistol. The return of this classic pistol at a great price was such a hit that PARA owners asked if they could get the P14-45 in Stainless. We listened and the P14-45 is now available in all weather stainless steel.
