It's unlikely. Was Jelco even selling their own branded arms in 1992? I had one of these tables in white mk iv with a Rega RB300 arm from that era. It was ok, nothing to jump up and down about.I sold it for $450.00 probably worth $400.00 with the Jelco arm.

A Linn Ittok LVII or LVIII would be killer on that table. If you can get a new armboard made, this is my current favorite arm:
Pay the little extra and get the Micrometer version.

They even provide a pdf that lists carts that work and the added weight needed for some of them! Every arm manufacturer should do that! Just makes sense.
Y'all be cool,
Just to clarify, I don't believe the original arm on the Paris is exactly the same as the Jelco 250ST. For one thing, the original arm (at least on my Paris) was an Audioquest PT-5 (made, of course, by Jelco), but it had fluid damping, which I understand the 250ST does not have. Not sure if there are any other differences.
I've replaced the original arm with a Sumiko MMT (a forerunner to the Jelco 750), and I am very satisfied with it. I really like the ability to change out cartridges, with the removable headshell. (Note the geometry of the MMT and the Jelco 750 are not the same.)
