  1. Good buy Review by not paul O for the third time
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    Accurate for being so small, Steel frame is heavy but controlled recoil is a plus. CL5 laser/light combo fits well with no overhang. 11 rounds. Of 45 is alot but it conceals mid back well and with a good belt carry is comfortable. Alot of bad reviews stemming from their switch to American soil and a drop in quality which has been corrected for the most part. The magazines had some problems and are being redesigned, probably just better springs. The Extracted got alot of flack but worked well without adjustment if it didn't break off, egw now makes a replacement that fits all these PXT guns. It is the smallest 45. 1911 available so limp wristing can be a problem, just hold on tight. (Posted on 12/28/13)

    I've broken two PXT extractors on a 6 month old pistol.

    Factory magazines FTE frequently; after market Mec Gars seem to work.

    Parts are made of cheap MIM that break.

    Some of these pistols are great, some are absolute crap. You roll the dice, you take your chances. (Posted on 9/20/11)

    Pros: Accurate, High capacity, Easy to maintain, Easy to shoot well, Nice Recoil, Fits very nicely in my hand, Easy to Use, Hi Cap Mags

  3. I've had cap guns last longer Review by Paul

    I bought a Warthog Stainless and after firing less than 400 rounds it broke on me. I bought it, 15 August 2011, had it only 14 days. The customer service rep I spoke to was, Tim Fusetti, after three calls trying to get this resolved he came off with an attitude of indignation. He said, "I'm going to get you a call tag so I can get you off the phone because you're diverting me from customers who need my help." In affect he let me know, in no uncertain terms, my problem with a gun that just lasted just 14 days wasn't important to him and my time as a customer wasn't important to him either. I spent at least 2 hours on the phone with Para USA today, at least 1 hour to an hour and a half was on hold, and he was spending too much time on my issues with my $925 Stainless Warthog. Para USA didn't want to provide the call tag because they wanted me to foot the bill for the shipping. After all this Mr. Fusetti misspelled the city I live in requiring me to call him a fourth time, only had to stay on hold 15 minutes this time. I aplogized to him that he had to do his job but reminded him if his company could make a firearm that lasted longer than 2 weeks I wouldn't be having to talk to him in the first place, and if I was too much of an imposition on him I would be happy to speak to his supervisor. He tried to tell me the misspelling of my city didn't matter but the e-mail I received from FedEx clearly stated, & I read it to him, if there are ANY errors in the addresses contact the company, Para USA.

    I didn't even mention, my gun, according to Mr. Fusetti, was manufactured May of this year. Their web site states the front site is red fiber optic and is suppose to be on all 2011 Warthogs. This was a major selling point to me. When I contacted him, 15 Aug 2011, the date I picked up my new, special order gun, his recommendation, go to the web site and buy one. No offer to install it when I spoke to him on the 15th of this month. I must confess he did offer to have one installed for free when I spoke to him this morning, but let me emphasize, he insisted, I cover shipping for something Para USA advertise as being a feature on the Warthog.

    I requested and still request an new pistol. I doubt with the type of customer service I've received, so far, this will become a reality.
    In summary: It shipped FedEx, 2 day, paid for by Para USA, 29 August 2011. I forgot to mention the magazine floor plate keeps slipping off of the magazine with the grip extension causing the spring to pop out and the whole assembly to come apart. I forgot to mention this to Mr. Fusetti today, but added it in a hand written note included with the firearm.

    If Mr. Fusetti is representative of their overall commitment to service and quality I doubt I'll be satisfied with the resolution. I just have to wait and see. Thank goodness for Rugers. I've owned them all my life & I can't honestly remember ever having a problem with one. I love my P345 & will likely carry it to the range tomorrow. I've pumped thousands of rounds through it and not a bit of problems. I've never had any problems with my Weatherby Mark V in 30-06 caliber. Man that Weatherby is beautiful and functional; what a work of art.
    I'll be hunting pronghorn antelope with Weatherby in October & had planned on carrying my new Warthog, guess my plans have changed. I think my Ruger will be making the trip. Joel Hutchcroft, editor of "Shooting Times", will be on the hunt with me also, I'll inform him of the Warthog issues.

    Thanks for reading, I hope this helps you in deciding on whether to buy a Warthog. (Posted on 9/1/11)

  4. Expenisve & lasted 14 days Review by Paul Orand

    Para USA states on their web site, "a front fiber optic site", so the day I purchased mine, 15 Aug 2011, I called and ask about it not having the site as advertised, Tim their customer service rep, advised me to buy one off their web site. They didn't offer to install it or anything. Today I called about it again. I spoke to Tim again and this time he said to ship the slide and they would install one at no cost. Later in the conversation, I also informed him the slide stop plug had broken at the range today. He kind of made light of it but said they would replace it. I told him I wanted a new gun. I bought it brand new 14 days ago. I've only shot a little over 300 rounds through it, and it breaks! I expect a new gun.

    I've owned Rugers all my life, I'm wearing one now, it's had thousands of rounds pumped through it and I've never had a problem with it, not to mention the fact it cost half what the Warthog Stainless cost. When I think about it I've never had any problems with any of my Rugers.
    I'd think twice before making any Para USA purchases. If the slide stop was forged and not cast I don't think this would have ever happened. (Posted on 8/29/11)

  5. excellent for the price Review by Fred Brauer

    This little para for me is a great buy. I have the lite hawg which is the same as the warthawg only with a rail. I bought it used. Wanted something that would not pain me so much if god forbid the police ever had to confiscate it. It is an EDC and that says alot about it's reliability. SA 1911 oacp style weapon. Only with a 10 rnd dbbl stk magazine.Whats not to like 11 rnds of 45.!!

    So The pros of this pistol are of course 11 rnd of 45.Also it is fairly easy to conceal.The grip is somewhat of a fatty.compared to a singlestack but it's not bad.With correct clothing it disappears... It is accurate for defensive use. I put xs 24/7 big dot sights on it and it shoots really well for me. For a 3 in 1911 it is reliable. Very reliable. Otherwise I would not carry it. Your mileage may vary of course so please test drive any handgun to insure your confidence in it. When the zombies attack you want to make sure it goes bang.

    Cons- Well para was never known for their finish. Mine is no exception. It looks like dung.Peeling off everywhere on the slide.I may have it bead blasted and redo it myself. Someday. Lots of MIM parts..

    All in all for a used pistol( I paid 425 for it)It's a good value. (Posted on 10/18/10)

    Pros: Accurate
