Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I've been shooting mine since early 2009. I have NOT found ANY broken frames, not even excessive wear. I shoot it frequently to keep my edge with it's power level and carry it as my BUG when hog/deer hunting.

The way I have my Colt set-up I can shoot both 460 Rowland and .45 ACP with no changes needed. I have even mixed rounds in the same mag and there is no doubt when the Rowland round goes high-order!

This thread is loaded with 460 info;

Big Thunder II Vs. Fenrir: The 1911 .460 Rowland Build Off

After reading the thread, should you have more questions, post them here. I'd be glad to answer those I can and will find the answers I don't know!

Old_Crow, The Clark Custom Guns 1911 Drop-In Conversion Kits are $295.

http://www.clarkcustomguns.com/rowland.htm

So....Old Crow......where can I get a S&W X-Frame for $150? I'll take a six-pack of them at that price!
The conversion kits I saw were priced at $3,100. Hence the 2 X-frame comment. I don't care to own a 1911 or a 460 rowland so I didn't look very hard.

You must have been looking at Bill Wilson's offerings.

Bill is VERY proud of his guns.

I'm looking at it as a possible Ddeer gun in Michigan and a good back up in the bear woods as my friends use hounds for hogs and maybe pins it packs a punch I personally would like one in 1911 and maybe a carbine
