    its about $300

    anyone have one for their 1911?

    looks like it will still fit my serpa

    this may be a better choice for bears then buying another gun like a 44 mag or 500s&w?

    I haven't seen it before, but it's an intriguing concept. There's something to be said for sticking with the frame and trigger that you're already familiar with. When you graft a very high-powered upper onto a frame that was designed for a more modest cartridge, you run the risk of getting very unfavorable handling characteristics -- the only way to evaluate that would be to shoot it. If you do, let us know what you think.

    Is that your gun?



    Just seems a bit odd since the wikipedia has that EXACT same gun with measuring tape.

    Also another option my be a simple swap of the barrel and go with a 400 Corbon. Basically the same idea of a 357 SIG - the 400 Corbon is a necked down 45 to a 40S&W. The 357 SIG is a 40 necked down to a 9mm.
