View Full Version : Para Ordnance Warthog...Now Available, But, Any Good?

This Micro Sized .45 is now available for sale in the PRK. The question is:

How is the functional dependability of this finely crafted implement???

I had the Warthog's predecessor, a stainless P10, back in '98-99.

It was pretty accurate but I was having lots of stovepipe failures - and failure rate did not decrease with break-in time.

Folks that had sent their P10s in for repairs and 'updates' still had problems, albeit reduced, when repaired guns returned.

I sold mine to a 1911 guy that really wanted it and felt he could get it running.

Too bad, as it felt good in my hand, recoil wasn't bad, and it was quite accurate, esp given the small size...

Who knows, in 'Warthog' trim it may have been redesigned a bit.

Do note that shorty 1911s (either w/3.5" or 3" bbls) have always been known to be a tad less reliable than their orig fullsize brethren.

I handled one at City Arms a couple of weeks ago. Seems interesting. Very small, light weight, nice trigger. Good fit and finish. I don't see the point, but if you're into micro-sized 45s, this one's for you.
They still had the same one on the counter yesterday.
