Para USA PXT Single-Action Limited

Description

The Para USA PXT Single-Action 1911 Limited is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. Para USA manufactures replicas of the famous military pistol the 1911, one of the most widely manufactured and used pistol designs in the world. The higher-end 1911 Limited pistols feature some premium components and finishes.

The 1911 Limited models have a high-gloss stainless finish with matte black accents on the top of the slide, slide serrations and the front of the frame, creating a two-tone finish. Other features include a competition trigger that is adjustable for overtravel, a fiber optic front sight that’s brightly colored and easy to see, and an adjustable competition rear sight. It also has an ambidextrous safety.

Like the original 1911, the Limited 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.

Para USA considers the 1911 Limited an all-purpose pistol.
