FEATURESSAFETY FEATURESWith law enforcement officers and competitive shooters in mind,Para-Ordnance’s pistols offer unique features along with thedurability and reliability of a time-proven design.Para’s semi-automatic pistols are quite similar in appearance whilethey all function in the same manner. Among themselves, thepistols vary in caliber, size, weight, barrel/barrel bushingconfiguration, surface finish, and in the type of metal used fortheir respective receivers (stainless steel or alloy).While this manual uses the Para Warthog and CCO pistols for itsillustrations, the directions apply to the other Para models unlessotherwise noted.Table 1:TECHNICAL DATA AND AMMUNITION INFORMATIONModelOrder No.CaliberRounds Barrel ReceiverOPSWarthogStealth WarthogP12 45S12 45 LimitedCarryStealth CarryCCOBlack Watch CompanionCarry WX645BCWX745SCX745SCTX1245N.45 ACP.45 ACP.45 ACP.45 ACP.45 ACP.45 ACP.45 ACP.45 ACP.45 ACP.45 ACP7 110 110 112* 112* 16 16 17 17 112* inlessStainlessPara-Ordnance semi-automatic pistols are equipped with anumber of safety devices (some are hand-operated while othersare passive) that are designed to minimize accidental discharges.There is some difference between how the Single-Action andLight Double-Action safeties work. Be sure you are reading thecorrect instructions.NEVER RELY ON A SAFETY MECHANISM TO JUSTIFYCARELESS HANDLING OR POOR MAINTENANCE.ALWAYS POINT YOUR PISTOL IN A SAFE DIRECTION.HAND-OPERATED SAFETIESThese safeties are activated manually.SLIDE LOCK SAFETY: Single-ActionThis safety device can only be activated when the hammer is fullycocked with slide fully forward (Figure 1).SLIDE LOCKSAFETY NOTCHSLIDE LOCKSAFETYHAMMER* For recreational use, magazine capacity is restricted to 10 rounds in U.S.A. and Canada.Figure 11011
NEVER LEAVE YOUR PISTOL COCKED AND READYTO FIRE. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUSCONDITION WHICH CAN LEAD TO ANACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE THAT MAY CAUSEINJURY, DEATH, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.To engage the Slide Lock Safety you must, while pointing thepistol in a safe direction with your finger away from the trigger,pull the slide to its most rearward position and then let it returnall the way forward, freely and with all its force. This will leavethe hammer fully cocked. Then push the Slide Lock Safety upuntil it fully engages the Slide Lock Notch (Figure 2). At thispoint, the slide is prevented from moving rearward and aninternal cam surface engages the sear to prevent the hammerfrom moving forward if the trigger is pressed.To engage the Slide Lock Safety, push the Slide Lock Safety upuntil it fully engages the Slide Lock Notch. At this point, the slideis prevented from moving rearward. If the cocking cam has beencocked and the trigger re-set, engaging the slide lock safety willdisengage the drawbar to prevent the hammer from movingrearward if the trigger is pressed.GRIP SAFETY: Single-ActionThe Grip Safety (Figure 3) prevents the rearward travel of thetrigger, which is necessary to fire the pistol, unless the pistol isfirmly in hand with a positive grasp of the Grip Safety. Whenready to fire the pistol with a firm hold on the receiver, theforward pressure that is applied to the Grip Safety disengages thissafety device and allows the trigger the necessary freedom forrearward movement required to fire the pistol.SLIDE CTIVE,IN THEOUTPOSITION)Figure 2SLIDE LOCK SAFETY: Double-ActionThis safety device can only be activated when the slide is fullyforward.12Figure 313
NEVER COMPROMISE SAFETY. NEVER ALTER ORMODIFY THIS PISTOL IN ANY WAY. THE MANUFACTURERWILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZEDMODIFICATIONS PERFORMED ON THIS GUN.GRIP SAFETY: Double-ActionThe Grip Safety locks both the hammer and slide. In order topress the trigger and move the hammer, which is necessary tofire the pistol, you must firmly grasp the pistol's receiver, fullydepressing the Grip Safety. When you are ready to fire the pistol,the forward pressure of your hand on the Grip Safety disengagesthis safety device and allows the hammer the necessary freedomfor its rearward movement required to fire the pistol when thetrigger is pressed.PASSIVE SAFETIESTHESE SAFETIES ARE ACTIVATED AUTOMATICALLYWITHOUT MANUAL INTERVENTION. DO NOT BYPASS THEMOR RENDER THEM INOPERATIVE.These mechanisms form parts of a safety system incorporatedinto your Para-Ordnance pistol and they are designed and installedfor the prevention of accidental discharges that could otherwisefollow as the result of some commonplace occurrences.NEVER RELY ON A SAFETY MECHANISM TOJUSTIFY CARELESS HANDLING OF YOUR PISTOL.Both Single- and Double-Action Para pistols are equipped withthe following passive safeties:Inertia Firing Pin: Size and position of the firing pin, which isheld to the rear by a spring, keep the pin from striking thecartridge primer unless the spring force and inertia of the14firing pin are overcome by the blow of the hammer.Firing Pin Lock: To minimize the risk of accidental dischargethat may be the result of the pistol being dropped or themuzzle receiving a blow, this safety device prevents the movement of the firing pin until the trigger is intentionally pressed.ALWAYS EXPECT THE GUN TO FIREWHEN YOU PRESS THE TRIGGER.The additional passive safeties are only on Single-Action pistols:Disconnector: Protects against firing a round prior to itsbeing properly seated in the chamber of the barrel andthe slide and barrel not having locked together.Hammer Safety Stop: The hammer is designed with a flat, shelflike surface which is there to prevent the hammer from fallingforward and onto the firing pin unintentionally by engagingthe sear should there occur a primary sear notch failure.FUNCTIONThe action on a Para pistol is based on a tilting barrel design thatlocks the barrel and slide together at the moment of firing. Afterfiring, the barrel and slide recoil to the rear for a short distance stilllocked together. Following this initial movement, the barrel tiltsdownward from its locked position, permitting full recoil of theslide and the extraction and ejection of the spent cartridge cases.ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT WHEN FIRED, A SEMIAUTOMATIC PISTOL RELOADS AND RECOCKSITSELF AUTOMATICALLY AND IS READY TO FIREAGAIN BY SIMPLY PRESSING THE TRIGGER. ALWAYSKEEP THE PISTOL POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION.15
