I have a fullsize 1911 and absolutely love it, I know that the para will be wider due to the double stack magazine, but I feel that it is worth it. Another question I have is that I've heard that people have problems with 3" 1911's, I've read that on different forums and a friend has a Kimber Ultra Eclipse with the same issue of the gun not feeding rounds. Does anybody know if this happens with a lot of 3" 1911's? I wouldn't want to carry a weapon that may not feed a round when I need one. Thanks in advance.
