Picked up a really nice Para 14-45 Lda stainless made in Canada. Spent casing envelope states model T1445S , dated March 2001. Serial number DA67XX.

Picked up at estate auction was told it was in safe of 80yr old fellow. Never been holstered. Hard to believe but by the looks of it, might be true...

Was told it is a limited but not stamped limited. 1st round is like da pull but afterwards it's much lighter as a sa lighter pull..

Thanks for any help.

I don't know a lot about LDA's but if its a Limited it will have adjustable sights (LPA\Bomar style).  I'm stretching my memory here but I thought on LDA's all the trigger pulls were the same.  Kind of a very light double action and consistent on every pull.  LDA stands for Light double action.  I'm sure there are some people here that are more knowledgeable than I am on the LDA's.  Also check out the Facebook group Para Ordnance Clubhouse.  There are some or one person that used to work for PARA USA that can answer technical questions about LDA actions.

That looks like a Limited LDA to me!  Front and rear cocking serrations, LPA rear sight but I cant tell if the front sight is dovetailed or not in the pic.  A limited would have a dovetailed font sight.  Its got the hex grip screws too.  So it doesn't say Limited on the other side of the slide in cursive?

Yes!  Ltd = Limited.  Nice gun!  I’m trying to remember but I think Para bobbed the hammer on the latter ones.  People kept trying to cock them like a revolver which would really damage the LDA mechanisms.  Now it may be very difficult to find internals so just a heads up about cocking the hammer!
