ridgez28, I appoligize in advance for the hijack, but I had a quick question.

Zappa, I have been wanting to get the 45 ACP/45 Colt Convertable for a while. Just how inaccurate is the 45 ACP load for this model?
The 45 ACP would be my primary reason for getting the gun.

I have several .45 Colt SS NMBHs with .45 ACP cylinders. All my .45 Colts required reaming the chamber throats. They are about 10 yrs. old and had .450” or so throats. I reamed them to .4525”. (Newer ones may not have this problem.) I sent them to Ruger to get .45 ACP cylinders fitted. I had to ream several of the .45 ACP cylinders as well due to them being too tight. I also had the .45 ACP cylinders modified to shoot .45 Auto Rim ammo as well. Mine are very accurate with both the .45 Colt and .45 ACP/AR cylinders.

I don' think he will mind, after all he posted it over two years ago.

Not sure, but he hasn't been on in awhile, maybe he will come on and answer you.
Good Luck.
