.460 Rowland Kit
Hello everyone. I recently bought my first 1911, a Kimber Pro Raptor II, and I freaking love it!! Only have 100 rounds through it, but I haven't had a single FTF or FTE. Anyways, I'm already thinking of my next pistol (I'm sure it's a sickness because I can't help it) and I think I want to buy a full size 1911 and drop in a 460 kit. Just wondering which platforms work best with it... I was looking at a Springfield Arms Loaded in stainless because I think it would look pretty sweet with that Rowland kit. Any advice is always appreciated.

Check with Cane, JD and Stalkingbear. But, I am sure that the kit works well with just about any full size 1911.

The kit worked well in my Springer Mil-Spec, the GI would have required some fitting. In general, carbon steel guns are preferred as they have a lower friction coefficient than stainless. I do have my kit in a stainless Taurus right now though. Lower end 1911s, like Rock Island and Israeli made guns are not recommended. You can go to Clark Custom's website and they have a lot of info...
