Para USA to discontinue handguns
I have gotten word and conformation that Para will no longer make pistols after the first quarter of 2015. Para was acquired by Freedom Group not long ago. If you currently own a Para they will honor the warranty. Their plan is to focus on one 1911 brand, and that will be the Remington 1911, so the Para line will be absorbed and badged as Remington. The new Remington 1911’s will be available in various sizes from 3 and ½” barreled compacts to full size double stacked frames. The new Remington 1911’s will be announced as they begin to approach manufacturing readiness. Until then, they will not be making any announcements about the change.
