I had a P14 Para several years ago to raise a little cash for something or other. I've been looking for another ever since. Remington bought Para and the brand disappeared a coup,e of years ago. Remington, however has brought out some double stack models of their own now. I've been looking for one for a while and found one tonight.

The 15 round magazine is nice.

I wonder if the magazines are better, the springs were an issue.

I sold my P13 to my best friend because it was a bit large for my hand. The weight would not make a good carry gun for me unless I run a shoulder rig.

But since I sold it to my bud, I still get to shoot it.

I owned both a P13 and a P14 several years ago. The P14 had 3 or 4 thousand rounds through it and I did not have any mag related issues. It ran perfectly.

The P13 had probably a thousand rounds through it with no hiccups......but I could have just been lucky.

I ordered a couple of extra mags to go along with the 2 supplied with the gun. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that these work as good as my old ones did.

Ummmmm........green box with a big "R":



I wonder.......what's in the box?





Ooooooooohh, gun porn:





Look how big the mag well is!



There you have it! So far everything seems to work as it should except, the mags won't drop out when the mag release is pushed. That is an easy fix. The consumer should not have to take care of issues like this, but maybe, there is some Jeep dna in there somewhere! LOL!

Oh my, be still my thumping heart! That is gorgeous. :bowdown:

Right you are about not having to tweak your new gun. A few years ago I bought a new Ruger LC9s for a carry gun but I lost faith in it when the magazine would sporadically fall out. Sent it back to Ruger and they replaced the entire frame but I would never trust it from that point on.

Ruger has excellent customer service and will fix anything and pay for shipping. I sent them a brand new revolver that the cylinder wouldn't stop on the first chamber when closed. Got it back within a week functioning perfectly. Hope Remington is just as accommodating. Go to their website and call their customer service and see what they say.


Can I have your used brass:grin2:
