Steel Frame double-stack 1911


Para Ordnance History

Founded by childhood friends Thanos Polyzos and Ted Szabo, Para Ordnance is based in Ontario, Canada. Since 1985 this company has manufactured a wide range of firearms, including their very first products, submachine gun paintball guns. One of best-known products is the high magazine capacity M1911-style pistol. With a true double stacking magazine, this 1911 is popular with law enforcement, competitive, concealed carry and self-defense shooters.

Even more groundbreaking was the development of the 1911-style double action only semi automatic pistol. The relatively small and lightweight pistols addressed the liability issues surrounding single actions and contributed to the radical shift of law enforcement agencies from away from revolvers towards semi automatic pistols during the 1980s and 90s.
