    The LDA is NOT a "true" 1911- is has a completely different firing system. I have never owned one and I have heard (but not experienced) that there are long term durability issues with the LDAs due to all the additional small parts. Make no mistake, the LDA firing system has more small parts and a completely different mechanical action than a John Browning design 1911 pistol.

    A true M1911 is a single action only trigger. I say "nay."

    Para makes or use to make their 18-9 as a true 1911 mechanically. Many look at a 1911 type pistol and if it is not 45acp it is not a 1911.
    To me as long as it operates by the original 1911 design then it is a true 1911. Caliber matters not.
    The Para LDA is a double action pistol. That makes it a 1911 like pistol in many ways, but a true 1911 is single action. There may be other changes that prevent it from being a true 1911 but the action change is all it takes in my book to take it off the true 1911 list.

    It does still look like one barring the trigger, but it is not one.

    I agree.
    Colt's made their Government Model in at least four different calibers: .45 ACP, 9mm, .38 Super, and .22 LR rimfire.
    (The rimfire version used a barrel with a very different chamber, but the rest of the pistol was the same as a standard Government Model.)

    The Nays have made their points well!!

    I get it.

    I like the LD's keeping most of the manual of arms of the 1911 system , and the non cocked and lock carry ( though that aint really a problem for me... just that options are good)! Thanks for all of the replies...Khegg
