I know this is really not the entirely correct place to ask this but I figure there are a lot of leos here and the might have some input along with everyone else.
I need a 40 service size weapon. I would prefer a 1911 but if I am correct Para and Kimber are the only ones that make one? What about buying a new barrel magazines and converting a 45? Also thing about th p229 equinox. Would this be too small for a duty weapon? .please don't mention xds or glocks. I have owned an XD and am well aware of their pros and cons. And I will NOT I repeat NOT carry a block. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am about researched out. (just FYI I am really interested if anyone has converted a 1911. Really want to try that)
