In a presser from Tactical Wire about Para-USA’s move to the United States, there is one blurb that caught my eye pretty quickly:
The first phase of production will start in 2008 with the assembly of the new Expert™ Series of firearms.
One of the first pistols to be assembled in Para’s Charlotte location will be the new “GI Expert” 1911 pistol. The Para “GI Expert” is an entry level 1911 pistol that will allow new marksmen to own a pistol that will give them what they need to become an Expert shot with the big bore .45.
For a guy that’s getting ready to build his first 1911, this is an intriguing concept for me. I’m eagerly awaiting this pistol to see what it looks like.
