I posted about the sidearms I generally carry on the field, so I'm posting pictures here to accompany my other post.

WA Para Ordnance P.14 Compact Plus 4" (Discontinued)


WA Para Ordnance HRT SCW 3 5" (Still made, but no longer imported into the U.S)


WA Wilson Combat Service Grade 5" (Discontinued)


WA MKII Prokiller (Discontinued)


The pictures are somewhat outdated, both Para Ords and the Wilson Combat all have real steel hogue grips modified to fit them. The Para Ord P.14 also has a 150% enhanced hammer and recoil spring, a Guarder stainless steel loading chamber, and is waiting for me to find time to install a "Shooter's Design Railed Shorty 2-tone slide" on it.

The Para Ord HRT has a Shooters Design POM Loading Nozzle Set and a Shooters Design POM Floating Valve installed as well. It also comes standard with a 6.03 tightbore.

My brother's WA's

Western Arms Infinity 5"


Western Arms Springfield Armory MEU New Model 5"


Western Arms Para Ordnance SCW2 5"
*Picture missing*

Western Arms Infinity XCellerator 5" Limited Edition (Only 100 made)


Unfortunately he no longer has the XCellerator. It went missing a few years ago. However, it was a very limited edition weapon, and was based of the MAGNA blowback system.

Third one down is by far my favorite. Overall, looks pretty sweet. How do you decide which one to use in games? Are they built for different terrains like one has more accuracy for outdoor games, one is more quiet for stealth, one has a quicker trigger pull for cqb, etc. etc.?

The Para Ordnance HRT has a hair trigger as well as the tightbore, so it has by far the most range/accuracy. I tend to use this more when I'm sniping or DM, although I'm phasing out using this one as much. In place is going to be the P.14 when I finish it.

The Para Ordnance P.14 is upgraded, more durable and more compact than the rest. It's the most compact, so originally it got used the most in CQB, but with the upgrades, I'm going to be making it more an outdoors sidearm.

The Pro Killer has full auto, and quieter when I run the silencer, tend to use it more in CQB for those reasons.

(The P.14 and the HRT use the same mags, they can also use the Pro Killer/Infinity mags, so some preference for those reasons on which weapon I'm using depends on what the rest of my team is rolling with.)

The Wilson Combat has been discontinued for a very long time 5+ years, so for that reason I don't use it very often, it tends to be more of a show piece/collectors item. However, my brother also has a WA MEU, which uses the same mags as the Wilson, so if he's rolling with that, I on occasion will use the Wilson.

My brother also has a WA Para Ordnance SCW 2, a WA Infinity 5" and a WA MEU. So like I said, which weapon I use also depends slightly on what he uses, mainly for mag sharing purposes. We also have a few other WA sidearms within the team, so that also dictates to some part which sidearm I use.

I think someone has a minor fetish for bad ass pistols. Good job, dude :)
Yes, yes I do. Most people steer away from Western Arms pistols because they cost as much as most of the namebrand AEGs (ie. TM, CA, G&G) back before all the clones (JG, ECHO, ect) were the new fad. However, if I think I'm going to need a sidearm, I want something I can rely on, and something that can outshoot those clones, and even many/most of the namebrand AEGs. I've been playing for a very long time, and I know that the best costs a pretty penny, however I think they're very worth it.

The nice thing about WA pistols too is they'll always hold their value, and in many cases are worth more than what I paid for them. For example, the Pro Killer and Wilson Combat I have I paid about $200 each for, but they're both discontinued and will fetch far more than that if I decided to sell them. Both the Para Ordnances I have can no longer be sold/imported in the US because of trade infringement, therefore they are worth way more than I originally paid and are even more rare in most cases than the discontinued WAs I own.

*EDIT*
At some point I'll post my brother's WA pistols for show purposes, as I also will use those on occasion. I'll edit the first post when I do so, I'm missing a picture of his Para Ordnance SCW 2 at the moment, his is parkerised, which is the most significant difference between ours.
