Well thanks.

I don't really have any advice, I was just thinking out loud. I don't know if the double stack handle on the frame narrows to a standard size frame where it integrates to the slide. I don't know, but it would stand to reason that it would be more work if it did so.

I am interested in if you can pull it off, to be honest. I can try to check with my guy and see if he has ever seen, or done, it and get back to you.

I just don't know enough to be able to say one way or the other.

If your gunsmith friend is going to do it, I'd be asking him if he is even capable of doing and what kind of cost would be involved. Just widening the frame is going to be a huge undertaking. I'm sure if you have the money, someone is capable of giving you want you want. Seems a little out there to me and I would bet the cost will be up in the thousands.

I'd be trying it on a RIA gun before potentially ruining a classic Gold Cup. But that's just me. Good luck with it though.

Well I would try to get a frame made for double stacks, like a Para Ordinance or perfect ten like Dillinger mentioned. Although I don't know if those perfect ten mags would fit in the Para. And about the cost, anything under 5,000 dollars would be my budget, this would be the first custom job I would have done.

I'll say this Rusty, it's an ambitious goal and you seem to have an end goal and budget in mind. *respect*

My concern is the Colt Gold Cup. What if you just take a true double stack capable slide and have it machined to look like your Gold Cup? No one but you and your 'smith would know the difference, but you would still have a very valuable Colt in the safe and a brand new hand cannon on your hip. Win-Win if you ask me.

Damn it. Now you have me thinking once again about a long slide in 10mm. *shaking fist*

Is the Delta elite even available with a double-stack mag? That conversion might be unique enough.



edit* After seeing the longslide pics, i may need a moment alone here.

No, the Delta Elite is not available in a double stack. And for that matter, there is no such thing as a double stack 1911 magazine. I've said it before, but bears repeating: 1911=single stack, 2011=double stack.

To the OP - if you are wanting to use a Para frame or something with your Gold Cup slide, you will no longer have a "true" Gold Cup. You'll have a Frankenstein gun that you can call a Para Cup. If you have a budget of $5k, why don't you have an actual 2011 race gun built in 10mm? Chances are you'll end up with a much better gun than trying to make a square peg fit into a round hole with your Para Cup idea.
