Default super versatile awesomeness

does anyone have a setup where you have a single handgun but then different springs and barrels for it where you are able to drop in the different parts fairly quick and shoot a number of different calibers? i was thinking a really cool setup would be something where you had a nice durable 1911 type handgun that had drop in conversion parts for you to fire .45, .40 and 9mm calibers. The only problem i would see might be the ejection port being sized properly for the different casings?

The EAA Witness series is about the most convertable that I'm aware of. They are CZ type guns made by Tanfoglio in Italy...

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
Dr. Adrian Rogers”

+1 with Asmel; Sig P250
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

I've got a Sig P226 that alternates between .357sig and 40s&w with nothing more than a barrel change, since the .357 uses a .40 case. That's about as easy as conversions come (and barrels can be found for $150, give or take), but this is because one caliber isn't much of a departure from the other. For the same gun I've also got a magazine and top end to shoot 22lr.

All said, I've got about $1000 into a Sig that shoots three calibers. Not too bad.
