Damn it, I KNOW!! I have been reading ALL about it and now I am considering redirecting the proceeds from my recent knife sale towards this new .460 drop in barrel platform and sending the whole thing off to Robar for an NP3, or similiar, coating....

*shaking head sadly* Why, oh why did I even open this can of worms? LOL

I wonder if I could get a 4" Kimber style bull barrel in .460. I've got to admit, I'm intrigued by the .460's numbers as well.

I know dude - and I have that Kimber Target II just sitting there in the safe doing nothing since the 'Hawks moved in. I just sold that Saevus blade to a collector for $350, so there is the conversion kit. I would just need to ship it off to Robar for a strip and refinish, then get some ammo, so I could have a WHOLE NEW GUN for under $500 out of pocket...... Damn it!

Here's my problem though:



That's the best that Google will give me.

That's the CDP isn't it? I had the same bushingless bull barrel in my Raptor II.

Yeah, that won't work bro, you need a barrel bushing, and a standard barrel to get the conversion kit to work....

****ty. I'd bet that the .45 ACP barrel could be CNCed out to .460 specs. Any idea on the chamber/bore/rifling specs on the .460?

The owner of the last company that I worked for before I started my current job, absolutely loves me and would have no problem writing a CNC program for me and running it on a piece of metal. Hell, if it made him money, he might even cut me in on the racket.

No idea, I just started researching this today. It appears to be a heavily compensated barrel to counter act the gas pressure, or perhaps the recoil on a smaller framed ( 1911 versus a heavy framed revolver ) pistol. If that is the case, going even shorter on barrel length could result in some serious back pressures.

Sooooooo, Robar would coat my Kimber inside and out for $285.....

I'm actually considering talking to my old boss. I wonder if I could push enough units per year to make it worth the hassle of getting all of the specs together on the Kimber 3" and 4" bull barrels.

This is a .308 Win muzzle break that eliminates 100% of muzzle climb and up to 40% of felt recoil in the intended platform. You guys think that this would be too unwieldy on the front end of a short barreled Kimber 1911, if it were modified to do away with the bull barrel design and instead attach in a manner that replaced the bushing?



I can get the proper steel for dirt cheap and and have the correct post treatment done for damn near nothing.

I may be onto something that would net me more than a few hundred bucks per year at least. If one of you homos steals my idea, I'll come break your fingers.
