View Full Version : Shooting the Para CCW
10th July 2004, 19:44
I had an opportunity to shoot two brand new Para Ordnance pistols this week. A compact C6, and a CCW.
We used a variety of ammunition, including Korean Mil Surp, Winchester Commercial, Remington Golden Sabre, HydraShock, and CorBon
The little C6 ate everything, and experienced zero problems, but the CCW pistol had multiple failures to fire. The Korean Surplus was not a surprise, it was designed for the M3 Greasegun, but the problems continued with the other brands.
That one is going back to Para for a check, but the smaller C6 is a keeper.

I am considering the C6 along with the LDA P12. How was the accuracy of the C6? What about the recoil? Any other comments on the C6? Have you tried an LDA P12? If so, any comments?

The C6 was accurate. We shot it at 7, 21, and 50 yards. At 7 yards, the groups would be covered by a quarter.
We also shot a P12 and P13. Both of these pistols were without fault. I like the traditional fire control much better than the LDA, which while quite good, is a solution to a non existing problem.

Thanks for the info Sam. I am undecided as to which one to purchase. I like the extra rounds of the P12; however, I love the concealment of the C6. I plan to use it as a concealed carry weapon. Is there much diffrence in size? I have seen the dimensions and they are only 1/2 an inch in diffrence (atleast on paper). In Miami, there are very few gun shops that actually have the weapons in stock to compare the sizes.

I have not seen a C6 yet in a Miami gunshop, but then there is not much in the way of decent shops here.
The little C6 carries well. Being a single stack, the stocks are much thinner. If you can get used to a 1911 with a double action only trigger ( and flat hammer, no spur) then try one. Personally, I think I would go for a Springfield or a Colt compact.

Thanks for the info. I saw a C6 at Lou's but it was a 2003 model (the wood grips).
