Why Para


Why Para? Start with the fact we’re innovators. We introduced the LDA trigger system, and the high capacity frame and magazine – each a milestone in 1911 design.

We’re also the dominant force in competition, with 100-plus world titles and counting. And we remain the choice of Travis Tomasie and some of the greatest shooters on the planet.

We attribute our superiority to one, simple source – our craftsmanship. Every pistol is made by hand, on a bench, by men as passionate about building firearms as they are about shooting them. Sure, we have no shortage of state-of-the-art equipment. But a machine can’t feel. It can’t hold a pistol in its hands and know exactly what’s working and what isn’t. Our guys can. And they do everyday.

Why Para? Hold one in you hands and you’ll know. Shoot it, and it’s case closed.

This is PARA. For life.
