    Para Hi-Cap 1911 magazines

    I have several different types of Para Hi-Cap 1911s in .45 ACP - a 14.45 LDA, a Hi-Cap LDA, and a Super Hawg Hi-Cap. Aside from the Super Hawg having a longer slide and barrel, and the other two pistols having an LDA trigger, they all look to be regular 1911 pistols that take a double-stack magazine. I have several blued magazines with Made in Canada" on the front (two different bumpers), and several stainless magazines with "Made in Canada" and 08 on the front - the one stainless mag with the extra spacer on the bottom is a 10-round magazine - picture below. I believe that they are all Para high capacity double-stack .45 ACP magazines and they should all work fine with all three pistols, right?

    Correct.

    The blued "Made in Canada" mags are pre-ban (made before the effective date of the old, federal AWB). The stainless "Made in Canada" mags are post-ban, and I would guess that the "08" indicates the year of manufacture.

    The second from the left in your photo has the optional LEO extra capacity base installed.
