What's not to like about a .38 Super for under $350? Mine was $299 as a close out special from CDNN. It appears nobody appreciated a polished blue and gold trimmed Taurus 1911 but I do. I love .38 Supers.

I just thought I'd point out that your current post count is 6666, you devil who goes above and beyond, you.

Oh and congrats on your new gun. Sure is a heck of a deal. I really don't know much about the .38 Super. I imagine it falls somewhere between the .38 Special and .357 Magnum, ballistically?

I'll do some research.

I always wanted a Super. I currently have dies, but no gun. Hopefully I will have a Super barrel soon for my G-20

Hoss, I've got one of those.
I want to make that convertible to 9mm. I had 1 setup that worked, but I did not like the finished looks.
