Para USA GI Expert 1911 LTC


The Para USA 1911 GI Expert LTC is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in .45 ACP. This LTC is a smaller, lighter version of the GI Expert. What makes it different is that it has an alloy slide and a skeletonized hammer, which reduces its weight by more than half a pound. It also has custom touches like a competition trigger, match grade barrel, and a fiber optic front sight, which is brightly colored and easy to see.

Like the original 1911, the GI Expert LTC uses a simple and effective recoil-driven action where the expanding gas produced from burning gunpowder is used to drive the slide back in turn eject the spent casing and load a fresh round on the return. It has a grip safety, which deactivates when a shooter wraps their hand around it, a manual safety, and a metal frame, which helps reduce recoil.

A common feature for the GI Expert models is a single-action trigger, which sets off the action with a short pull.

Para USA recommends the Expert LTC for self-defense or concealed carry and recreational shooting.
