Para Ordnance Warthog .45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

One of the most uncomfortable guns we've tested, the Warthog ground into our shooting hands painfully. Operating like a 1911, this gun could be carried cocked and locked. We had problems with hot ammo, which caused the slide stop to lock the gun openfrom recoil force.

There was no way we could get all our fingers onto the grip. The little finger hung in the breeze. Note how high the gun sits in the hand, a feature that caused lots of muzzle flip. It was not easy to get the magazine out of any of these three test guns, but this one was the worst. Sights were good, though the gun shot low, and the beavertail was unnoticeable.
It was extremely easy to get the Warthog into these parts, by pulling the slide-stop pin. Workmanship was very good.
