Western Arms - Para Ordnance P14.45 GBB
A little history on the real Para Ordnance pistol.
The Para-Ordnance P14-45 (14.45) is an improved derivative of the successful United States Armed Forces' M1911 pistol. Created by Para-Ordnance (now Para USA) in the 1980s, it was the first ever M1911 derivative to feature a high-capacity double-stack magazine.
In the late 1980s, Toronto-based Para-Ordnance started selling "high capacity conversion kits" for M1911A1 pistols, consisting of an updated frame with a thicker grip to accommodate a double-stack magazine that was supplied with the kit, which doubled M1911's 7-round magazine capacity to 14; and a new trigger assembly with suitable dimensional changes to fit into the widened grip frame. With the success of the kits, Para-Ordnance began manufacturing complete M1911 pistols of its own in 1990.
The Western Arms Para Ordnance P14.45 is a faithfull replica of the real steel pistol, being fully licensed it has all the correct trademarks and makers information you would find on the real pistol, not a single hint that this is an Airsoft Gun.
The frame on this P14 is metal and gives a nice heft to an already solid weapon, as key features have been carried over from the iconic 1911, shooters who have used a 1911 before will feel at home with a P14.45.
Due to the rarity of Western Arms and spare parts the pistols are tested before despatch and sold as a collectors item only.
Please note these pistols must be used with HCF134A gas only
