    If you're looking for a cheaper plinking alternative, you can always go for a .22 conversion and save yourself some money that way. I got one for my Kimber and it works great.

    40 super and 400 corbon use necked down 45acp cases only a barrel would be needed for this conversion. I have done this caliber in a 1911 and we have barrels in both these calibers.

    If that is a reply to my post above, I didn't say "40sw", I said .40 caliber.

    9MM 1911s can be very problematic. Feeding problems being the most frustrating. I had a 45 converted and it was a PITA trying to do it with a non ramped barrel. I then had the frame cut for a ramped barrel (As GAMMON has stated) and most problems went away.

    You would probably be better off buying a 9MM 1911 but even then, you may still have problems until you find the mags and OAL that work with your gun

    Thank you Gents, the last thing I want to do is take a fine shooting weapon and turn it into a finicky POS. I need an excuse to buy a new pistol after my "AR-10" project
