    Looking at taking one home in the next week or so, I believe it is the SSP... good price on it, should I grab it or wait another month and go for a kimber?

    heres mine,great gun.It has been 100% reliable.Kimbers are good guns so you have a hard choice.I like the Paras for the ramped barrels and power extractors.

    I'd jump on it. From what I've heard about Kimbers, the newer ones have had some problems, but YMMV.

    Out of the 50k guns they sell a year, they don't have any more problems (probably less) that any other good production manufacture. But based on the number of guns they sell, likely one of the highest production numbers, that small percentage end up on internet forums complaining. Have of the complaints I see are related to new shooter, new to 1911 and not paying attention to what Kimber says to do and use during break in. They're manufactured tighter that most others. But they aren't perfect.

    What I'm curious about is just exactly how cheap is the Para? Or how expensive do you think a comparable Kimber is? I can't see there being much difference.

    I have a Kimber Team Match II .45 acp that runs flawless. I don't have but about 200 rounds through it but I have not any problems. I use it as my conealed gun. My competition guns are STI .40s.

    Get the Para, I have several and never had any issues. Every company has their problems but I have yet to experience it with Para. Plus they shoot sweet.
