The new BLACK OPS pistols feature PARA's new all black Ionbond finish. This tough new finish is non-reflective and extremely durable. Even the match grade barrel sports the new finish. Former U.S. Army Sergeant and World Champion action shooter, Travis Tomasie has shot thousands of rounds through one of the PARA Match grade barrels with the new Ionbond finish. After the Tomasie torture test the barrel showed almost no signs of usage on its non-reflective surface.
The new BLACK OPS are built in the tradition of the famous PARA Limited Series of pistols that Tomasie is currently campaigning in USPSA/IPSC competition. For the tactical operator these pistols are built on new frames with integral light rails. In addition to providing the flexibility of adding a variety of lights, lasers and light-laser combinations the new BLACK OPS pistols also feature the ultimate in gripping control. No expense has been spared to give them the best control of the .45 ACP pistols under all conditions. The new BLACK OPS pistols all have G10 grips with an aggressive machined pattern to provide the ultimate gripping surface.
Three new BLACK OPS models have been introduced in PARA's 2012 line. The 14-45 BLACK OPS gives operators a high capacity .45 ACP pistol with fixed combat type night sights.
