The M1911 has been, and always will be, one of the world’s most celebrated firearms–so it’s really no surprise that countless individuals have tinkered with the iconic design since it first rolled off of the production line over a century ago. That said, it was a little over 20 years ago that the young Canadian Para-Ordnance company dared to release a double-stack 1911, significantly increasing the historic design’s capacity. The revolutionary move helped put Para on the map, and became something of a signature for its 1911s.

A few years ago the company set up a U.S. subsidiary in North Carolina-Para USA-and in early 2012 it became part of the Freedom Group. The firearm chosen as Gun of the Week, however, strays from both Para’s past and present. It’s a single-stack 1911 produced prior to the company’s purchase: the Para LTC Tactical.
