PARA PDA GRIPS are Not Standard Compact 1911

I recently read online many folks stating the the PARA USA PDA 6+1 LDA¬† 9mm and 45 auto used standard compact 1911 grips. That information is not correct. The PDA is a 6+1 round . This means the grip frame is too short, about 1/4″. The screw holes are not in the correct location and the grips are much thinner than a typicall 1911.

Further complicating matters the 9mm and 45 PDA are not the same either.

The only source I have found manufacturing grips that will fit either model Para PDA is Raasco Grips.

I friend with an FFL in Florida helped me purchase my new Para PDA. He took some pictures to hold me over until the handgun reached me in the next week or two.
