    These are rather interesting I feel. Partly because this goon does it with only a vise, calipers, file and bench block for his metal cutting. What he turns out is quite a nice piece. Check it:

    Pretty Neat if you have time patience and a steady hand.

    never understood the appeal of a full size 1911...in 9mm. its like hi-power at a higher price point and less reliability. I can see getting a commander or officer size in that chambering though.

    For a moment I wanted a 9mm 1911, but decided against it soon as I saw it.

    Super weak main spring, plus a number of other things reminded me of those 22LR conversions, you know the ones that work one moment then jam the next.

    Now I've got the Hots for a full sized 45 comp gun.

    Thinking if I get a good deal on a Springfield RangeOfficer then score a EGW comp blank I can con my brother into a finish/install job, gratis.

    Worst comes to worse may go with a Clark, except I'd rather not have a bushing based comp.

    More shit to lay some loot on.

    A 1911 Commander in 9mm is on my bucket list.

    I shot a nighthawk 1911 the other day (.45acp of course I am not shooting a gay ass metric measured round). Pretty sweet gun.

    Don't go metric. Then next thing you know you will be on a Pride float.

    The only non .45 ACP round I would go with for a 1911 is 10mm.
