Welcome afb. What did your gunsmith say about the trigger pull?

You might call Para's customer service and see if it is within their factory specs. My guess is that they will tell you it is.

I would:
1) Have your "1911 gunsmith" measure the distance between the hammer and sear pins and if it is in spec. adjust or replace your trigger so it moves with no drag.
2) Then replace your hammer, hammer strut, sear, and dis-connector with a known aftermarket matched set, and go on down the road and enjoy your pistol.

afb, I used to work for Para. The best thing you could do is get rid of the internals and go with a known good set of parts. QC on Para's parts was hit and miss at best. Spend a little more money right now and you'll have something you'll enjoy much more down the road.
