I need a cup of this .460 Koolaid. I might have to go pick up an old, worn out full sized 1911.

We should meet up in Oregon somewhere near the Black Bear restaurant and have a breakfast and shooting session.

Wait til mine comes back from Robar - I got a hell of a real world test set up to show the power of this big bastard. *rubbing hands together in evil fashion*

Sorry it took me so long to respond, I took a vacation. I went to the mountains of eastern Ky to look at farms (north eastern Ky), then went for a visit with some good friends of mine. I also delivered a couple full custom rifles I built since I was down that way. Coal miner people from Harlam Co Ky are true rednecks and once you're accepted by them, you're "in like Flynn". We had a BLAST! It's just like turning back the clock down there. Now it's nose back to grindstone and scheming for my .460 build. The wife has REALLY been watching my expenditures so it might have to find cover under the guise of a custom that wasn't picked up after build.

It looks like marital/money issues has caused my project to come to a screaming temporary halt. I'll resume as soon as I can. Until then, somebody else take the reins of this project. Side note-Taurus is now making double stack full size 1911s in .45acp. They SHOULD be cheaper than the Paras-otherwise why buy them?

Sorry to hear that 'Bear, hang in there. These .460 builds you guys have been doing have been great reads. A lot of interesting ideas and loads of fun to boot.

That Taurus (if it ever actually comes out) might be your ticket, seeing as its 12+1 and the Springfield highcap is 13+1 and the Para (which is what CCG mentioned troubles with) is 14+1. Seeing how they all seem about the same size, im guessing they have more reserve spring with the fewer rounds. Also, the taurus is alot of gun for the price, at least in the single stack. Fit and polish isnt the greatest, and im not a huge fan of the colt style firing pin block, but they have all the bells and whistles, for less than most of the GI's other companies make.

I Carry a Springer hi-cap and plan on fitting a Clark kit to it as soon as i have the cash in hand, so let us know how it turns out.

Ive always thought of recoil as, the more recoil the higher the gun will snap back. But in the .460 case, is there less rise due to the compensator. Because of this reduced rise, does that mean it it will punch you harder in the hands and really feel the shock in your forearms?
