    Hello all,

    Has the 1911 pistol ever been manufactured in the 38 special cartridge? I've thought about this in the past but having a Beginner's Corner I don't feel so intimidated to ask questions.

    Thanks,

    Lee

    That's neat. I don't know that I've ever seen a barrel for sale. Would be a great project for a new build.

    Thanks,

    Lee

    What is done to compensate for the case rims stacking up against each other?

    I’ve shot a 1911 chambered for 38 special. It was awesome.
