    460 Rowland 1911 conversion kit

    Anyone have experience with this conversion? Any thoughts on this as a CCW gun?

    I bought a conversion kit for a Para P14 some time ago, and have never tried it. Now I see that they no longer offer due to "reliability" issues.

    Anyone with experience on a Para?

    I had thought it might make a nice substitute for 44 Mag as a bear gun. I think the ballistics are similar? Don't remember.

    This has been discussed here before and i hate to send you anywhere but here but go to this sight

    http://forum.m1911.org/search.php?searchid=190444

    and search

    but if you want a 44 mag buy one trying to alter a gun into what it want made for especially a hot round can give you more problems than it is worth

    especially with that i would worry about frame battering
