Are there any .38 Specials anymore?

    Yes, .38 Special (wadcutter) in a 1911a1. Jim Clark made some a few years ago. And I know that the Peters Stahl was once chambered for it. It made a good trainer with little felt recoil, used the same frame as the .45 ACP, so change the top and mags and you were back to .45. Are there any manufacturers doing that now?

    I recently saw a thread about a .357 magnum chambered 1911; surely that wouldn't be sooooo different (other than recoil) from a .38 spc model.

    Looks like Clark still does.

    Rock Island makes a .38 super in a full size 1911.

    Have one. For some who have never shot the m1911a1 in .38Spl, it opens a new world. I had one, sold it, now am looking for a replacement.
    Thanks
