Well, since the entire conversion from .45 ACP to .45 Super consists of a heavier recoil spring I don't see how it could be messed up. Maybe there is something I'm missing but it sounds like you are about to be ripped off big-time. Who is doing the work?

To elaborate: the .45 Super is identical to the .45 ACP in all external dimensions. The brass is just stronger so it can hold up to the increased pressure. Therefore, there is nothing to convert except for a stronger recoil setup. I mean, what the heck are they going to change? The external dimensions of the barrel are pretty much fixed by the 1911 design and the internal dimensions are the same either way.

IMHO Ace Custom's .45 Super "conversion" exists to soak people. And a 32lb spring strikes me as completely insane; for what it's worth I'd be more inclined to go with a 24lb spring and a good buffer on a FLGR.

If you want to pay for a conversion, pay to convert your 1911 to .460 Rowland; it is more powerful and more companies make ammo for it. That way you will know your conversion was at least necessary to shoot the caliber, since .460 Rowland doesn't chamber in a .45 ACP barrel.
