View Full Version : Question about the SA Loaded Longslide

10-13-2010, 8:46 AM
Are there any major deal breaking faults with the SA Loaded Long-slide 1911? I just got a chance to try one of these out and I am now trying to decide between it and a Para Ordinance P1445 limited for my next gun, both are about the same price so I am just wondering if there is anything particular to the Springfield I should know.

It depends on what you plan on doing with it?

Range gun, I live in LA county so CCW is out, and for HD I use a 12ga.

My Springfield long-slide had a minor problem with extracting, but was easily fixed by adjusting the tension. Other than that, it has been fine.

My Para is a whole other story; it would be hard to talk me into buying another one (very pricey magazines, ongoing FTF and FTE challenges).

Don't buy that particular Para.

After some more research on the Para Ordinance I think Ill be going with the SA Longslide, general consensus is the extraction scheme in the Para's is really bad, giving them a reputation for failures. Besides, in my opinion the Longslide is a better looking gun.
