Custom Browning 1910
I've been playing with the idea of getting an Browning 1910 in 9mm kurtz and having it rechambered for the North American Arms .32 NAA. I been reading some impressive reviews of the round and I like the Browning but I've never been impress with the 9mm kurtz performance.
I'm looking for some feedback from the knowledgible posters on this forum on whether it's possible to start with and worth it for me to even consider it?

Probably not a good idea to put a +P round in a gun designed
almost 100 years ago.
Basic Browning info
.32 NAA info
1200 FPS with a 60gr bullet would be great for small game ,
but on People - stick with .380 or better.
-SIG , it's What's for Dinner-
know your rights!

Thought that a 9mm Kurtz WAS a .380. If so,how can you have a .380 rechambered and have a .32 bullet fit the lands. Am I missing something ??
Isn't a .32NAA simply a .380 necked down to .32(a bottle necked cartridge,similar to the .357 Sig.-------

I'm currently just trying to get some feedback on the con's that might be of concern, trying to develope solutions that will allow me to process with this project, if I determine it's worth ($) it?
The 1200 fps rating is in a 2 1/2" barrel, the 1910 is 4" which would mean even higher velocity which should equate to great energy tranfer with the JHP thus a greater wound cavity. After all it's not solely the size of the bullet but shot placement that in the end counts.
Though the design is almost 100 years old, I view it no different then the almost 100 year old design of the 1911 or the 130+ years old design of the modern revolver. The concern is the metallurgy of the individual piece. Of course the older the piece the more this comes into question.
This concern might be resolved by either having a new barrel made or if the barrel can be safely shelved to the .32 calibre, then the addition of a heavier recoil spring to reduce the stress on the frame in either case.
The real question is whether it's worth the $$$ to have a truely unique carry piece?
