not 100% sure, but might need the entire slide as well as the ejector. hopefully one of the more versed 1911 guys will chime in here and give us a heads-ups.

What about the breach face? That's a big difference in diameter,one woukd think the 9mm have enough room to wiggle out from under the extractor

Y'all are likely going to need a new set of springs as well. Angle on feed ramp different. Extractor- and the smaller diameter of the round will require some tuning.

Hell, ANYTHING is possible (except skiing thru a revolving door) Question is how many $$$$ you want to throw at it? Drop-in type kit? Not for .45 ACP to 9mm Para. .38 Super to 9 is another matter.

.45 to 9mm, new slide (breech face is different), new mags, new extractor, new ejector, new barrel, new springs.

.45 to .40S&W, new slide, new mags, new extractor, new ejector, new barrel, new springs.

.40S&W to 10mm, same slide, new mags, same extractor, same ejector, new barrel, new springs.

As the ultimate .38 Super fanboy, IMHO that would be sacrilege. Like trading a Corvette for a minivan.
