It should be able to handle it. Clark's Customs Guns had a list of those 1911s that they would not convert, and I believe that SA was not on the list.

Q: Are there any other guns that you specifically DO NOT recommend for the 460 Rowland?
A: YES! We do not recommend this kit for installation in
  • IAI (Israeli Arms International) - We've found the top lugs in the slides of the Philipines produced 1911s to be soft! We've not tested the Israeli made guns but would recommend extreme caution.
  • Rock Island Armory
  • Auto Ordnance
  • Taurus
  • Llama
  • AMT
  • Charles Daly
  • Essex
  • Remington Rand
  • Any "GI" 1911 (note: Springfield Armory Current Production models excluded)
Looks like a heck of a lot of entertainment for $295.

Look again. A modern production Springer GI is fine.

Springfield Frames are strong enough. The Springfield GI is just a configuration or style. It's the old GI spec frames, from back when, that are iffy.

If in doubt, call Clark.

Thanks the replies was helpful ... Now another question the guys that did the conversion kit and shot with the 460 rowland .. Was it worth the money to y'all for the kit?
