Security Six Conversion to 9x23 Win
 
I am a fan of the Security six revolvers I have two (one in blue and one in stainless). Anyways, I found one in a stainless one in a shop for about $380. I am thinking about buying it and instead of having another 357 magnum Security six. I was going to send it to Pinnacle Custom and have it converted to 9x23mm Winchester. This was I can fire 9x23, 38 Super, and 9X19 in it and have a truely custom gun.

I would carry it with 9x23 and use cheap 9x19 at the range for fun. I went to check the maximum pressure levels of both the 357 magnum and 9x23 to see if they were comparable but I can't find them measured using the same scale.

For example, I found that the 357's max chamber pressure is 35,000 PSI but the 9x23mm is 45,000 CUP. I read that CUP can't be converted to PSI and I can't find any data of a PSI value for the 9x23mm WIN caliber.

Any help would be appreciated.
As well as coments about my idea to convert a Six. Pros, Cons, whatever.

I can't help you, but it sounds really interesting. I am a big fan of the Security Six and I'll be following this adventure.

JFrame Chronograph results - .38spl, 9mm, .38 Super, 9x23 Winchester

No chamber pressure listed, but may influence your decision. Good luck.

I know this is old, but what happened to this project??

The custom shop said that the work could be done but he said that he would prefer a revolver that is still in current production so that he could aquire parts more easily. As well as a revolver with thicker chamber walls. I am still planning on having it done, but I am going to do the conversion on an 6-shot N frame model 627 (when I finally acquire one), despite the fact that I prefer the Security Six.

Don't worry its going to happen just not right away.

I have, I have...

If I ever find either the Medusa 47 or a Colt Survivor, its MINE!

Rather than buying a 627, it may be cheaper to buy another Service Six as a parts donor if needed. If not, you still have a good revolver.
