Here goes cane swimming against the current!
My SS XSE Government can and will Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde from Rowland to ACP at my pleasure.
You guys need to appreciate the brilliance of this conversion kit. It is truly a non-destructive alternative. The change can be accomplished during a range visit with little disruption to your shooting.
How its done!
I have shot this combination frequently and have not seen a degrading of performance to the Colt in wear nor accuracy. This is truly a kit that provides you with two guns for the price of a match grade barrel.
I have tuned Fenrir (recoil spring) to where I can shoot both 460 and 45 with no other change than ammo. I can even mix the ammo in the mag and Fenrir runs without a glitch.
Don’t use this conversion kit to justify the purchase of a second 1911. If you want another 1911 (and who doesn’t) get it! However, it can be an excuse to provide to your SO for the need of the second gun.
If you decide that a second, dedicated 1911 is the route to go I would recommend buying a complete gun from CCG.
