    Para Ordnance P 14 Limited

    Many years ago, I found a P14 Limited and really liked the pistol, but then I found something else I had to have (I think my 945) came up and I did not have enough $$, so the Para was traded. Looked for another off and on, but never found one when the budget was right until last month at an auction. No box or extra mags, but the pistol appears to have seen little use and is a Canadian version. For a change, I bought the gun On Tuesday and managed to get to the range the next day. Functioning was perfect and accuracy was good. Sights did not even need to be moved. That night I placed an order for some new grip panels. These are Brazilian cherry and really dress up the pistol to me. When the zombies attack or the Russians and Chinese finish hacking all of our systems and tank the economy to the point the (gimme dats) start to roam the neighborhood, this one will be on my hip. Something very comforting about 15 rounds of .45 ACP close at hand. Need to get some extra mags and see if I have a holster that will work.

    Nice pistol. Inquiring minds want to know, what makes it a Canadian version?

    The company was originally in Canada. Then moved to NC and now owned by the Freedom Group/ Remington. Apparently some quality issues during some of the changeovers. I have a P16 Signature in .40 (same basic gun as the Limited) and an Elite Officers model in .45. All are great pistols.

    Back in the 1990s, I ordered Canadian versions of the P-14 Limited and the P-12 Limited after reading glowing reviews in magazines. Extra high-capacity magazines were $100.00. They were both jam-o-matics and the thumb safety wiped off constantly during carry. Customer service was non-existent. I sold both of them.

    I, too, have a P-14-45 and find it to be very accurate, reliable, comfortable pistol. I have read disparaging remarks about Para Pistols, but this has not been my experience. Congratulations on your purchase rounding out a nice collection!!!

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.
