If you can find a used Norinco they are very good ones as well. For something like the Daly check out the Rock River Arms line. They are quite similar, and close to the same. The Para is not a bad one at all. As well all of the many upon many Taurus PT 1911 I have seen at the range no one had anything bad to say about them. They seem to be among the best guns Taurus makes.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
