WOW! I may be getting it sooner than I hoped.

Ok $326.99 at Brownells, but they are out of stock.

My next 1911, which will probably be a custom build, will be a .460 Rowland, wont even bother to put in a .45acp barrel probably.
I figure if were going to spend $1K+ on a factory pistol from Wilson Combat in .460 Rowland that I'd end up modifying to my tastes, I'd rather get exactly what I want and do it myself.
I dont really think the round is going anywhere and seems to be gaining popularity with the internet giving easy access to info about the round.

Did you mean to say, "$3K+" ? I believe that is the list price on a Wilson Hunter in 460 Rowland. OUCH!

I remember loads like the 41 Avenger that were just a flash in the pan. Is the 460 in a 1911 a realistic pistol load (woods, hunting, defense - actually, purposefully defensive) or just a "pipe dream"??? Carrying a 5" pistol w/a comp on it is to say the least difficult, let alone that anyone would actually do so mainly for self defense (although self defense does not have to be just human - there are DEMONcrates and zombies out there).

Those of us older than our cars have experienced new miracle loads that have come and gone. No, I am realistic enough that I do not expect a huge number to seek this conversation, but do you believe that enough of 1911 carriers would actually do so? Such loads die out fairly quickly, with no factory loads available.

Okay, time for kool-aid. Bye!
The 460 Rowland round is for real!

And what do you mean, "Carrying a 5" pistol w/a comp on it is to say the least difficult, let alone that anyone would actually do so mainly for self defense..." ? Mine works just fine in my Xbreed IWB!



Why shoot twice?

And I'm six times older than my 2000 model year car!

Cane and I started a build off on this expansion platform, so yes I have had one and shot it.

The thing is a beast, and if drops in your weapon (Goju will have NO problems ) you have an instant conversion capable of delivering .44 magnum style power in the best handgun platform ever designed.

The only downside is feeding it. If you reload, there is no reason NOT to have one in my opinion. I didn't reload for pistols at the time I owned by kit, which I believe NGIB is currently sporting .

The .460 Rowland Conversion puts a great pistol like the 1911 onto a level that is just THAT much more epic.
