    What's not to like about a .38 Super for under $350? Mine was $299 as a close out special from CDNN. It appears nobody appreciated a polished blue and gold trimmed Taurus 1911 but I do. I love .38 Supers.

    I just thought I'd point out that your current post count is 6666, you devil who goes above and beyond, you.

    Oh and congrats on your new gun. Sure is a heck of a deal. I really don't know much about the .38 Super. I imagine it falls somewhere between the .38 Special and .357 Magnum, ballistically?

    I'll do some research.

    I always wanted a Super. I currently have dies, but no gun. Hopefully I will have a Super barrel soon for my G-20

    Hoss, I've got one of those.
    I want to make that convertible to 9mm. I had 1 setup that worked, but I did not like the finished looks.

    Kinda had that in mind when I bought it-
    If I keep it that may well happen :)

    I knew a lot of comp shooters who shot 38 super In matches. Very under used round IMO....

    My friend Skip bought one of the Rock Island 1911's in 45ACP. Excellent fit and finish. Smooth trigger and very accurate right out of the box.
