So I've been nursing this idea of a full custom for years now... I'm still a ways away from really being able to afford the kind of job I'm thinking about, but this might be the year I finally realize my dream.
My question is this:
Is it possible to take a Bushing slide from a decent...
Here's what I think I want - a railed single-stack Commander-size 1911 in 9mm, with a bull barrel. While I haven't looked at every single manufacturer's website out there, I can't find one. As far as price goes, I'm looking in the $1,500-2,500 price range. I would prefer not to have a whole...
Looking to see if it's worth converting my Dan Wesson TCP to .38 super. I've always wanted to convert a 1911 9mm carry piece to .38 super.
Kind of liking the feel of my DW TCP 9mm but trying to see if it was feasible to convert it to .38 super but not finding a "drop-in" 4" ramped bull barrel...

I've got a full railed Springfield TRP that I adore and intend to run supressed.
1. Is this a viable option?
2. What manufacturers offer barrels and, bounus: fitment?
3. Is this recommendable in so far as reliability over a bushing and standard barrel?
Pic for, well... because:
Fellow Addicts: I own a Beautiful 1911 that shoots like crap. I finally sent it off with a note to the manufacturer that its shooting 3 inches left and 3.5 inches low at 10 yards. Their note is below in Italics. The distances were 25 and 50 feet not yards. AT 25 feet, group size should be nickel...
What are the advantages of a bull barrel compared to a barrel and bushing design?
I'd like to own a Ruger SR1911 9mm Target but the bull barrel stumps and stops me from buying one.
For you folks with bull barrels and/or pic rails on your Government sized 1911s -
Does it actually reduce the recoil impulse? i.e., less impulse traveling to your wrist and elbows when comparing it side by side to a standard government size with regular barrel?
Does it translate to slightly...

Im looking to get my first 1911 for CCW and I need some help here. I have always owned 1911s but they have all been Government models. Too big for OWB carry, so I need to go smaller. Here is my criteria.

hello my fellow builders!
A question that's been bugging me makes me wanna ask my fellow 1911 addicts.
5" bull barrel with a supported reverse plug (hat type) vs a normal 5" bushing barrel with a FLGR (of course with a fitted bushing). Which is more accurate?
Assuming both have no...
