I don't know why I am getting into this but you must have never heard of the Glock Kaboom. The chambers do not fully support the high pressure round. It is a well known problem. Just google glock...

Check out Caspian Arm

If you get serious about the project check out Caspian Arms on the web. They make great frames and slides.

Go to Brownell's on the web and request there 1911 catalog.

Good Luck,
