Our Assessment: The Colt 1911 is the best Semi-Auto pistol ever made (in my opinion) and Para Ordnance has become one of the best (if not the best) 1911 currently being made. This gun is reliable (as any Para Ordnance), powerful (as any .45 ACP) and just good looking. From Para's web site: "The Lt. Colonel has a 4.25-inch barrel on a full-size frame. This combination makes it the most popular 1911 .45 ACP compact pistol in the world. PARA adds its exclusive Power Extractor Technology and a match-grade integral ramped stainless barrel to make it the best 1911 in its class. It now comes standard with the best 3-dot sight system on any 1911."
