There a couple active in Production at the local IPSC matches. I believe they are both double stack guns. The .45 has had the action worked and is said to be unbelieveably smooth and light. To my knowledge he has had no problems. The other gun is a 9mm, he has it at EGW (I think) for an action job.

I guess that for competition (even in "Production") a wide body works better. Bigger opening for mag changes, and in .40 and .45 you wouldn't get a 10 round mag that is legal in a single stack.

I bought a Glock to try Production and I just can't get the hang of the "staple-gun" trigger. I just picked up a Beretta to give it a go. I had really poor customer service with a P-16 and have sworn that Para would never sell me another gun. Fortunately for them they don't need my business, it appears they are selling everything they can make.

Except for competing in another division or fulfilling a Department's requirements, a DAO semi auto seems to me to be the wrong answer. With proper training and practice it is no safer than a single action pistol.

While I'd agree that a free replacement on a magazine that's years old is nice , it takes very little to throw another mag in a package and ship it out. Standing behind an $800 (plus) pistol is, in my mind, the minimum to be considered merely Good Customer Service. And they failed.

Congratulations on receiving the same level of service that Wilson would provide on a $25 magazine.
