I've thought about that conversion myself. If you check Ace Custom's website, the conversion kit includes more than just a recoil spring... I really couldn't say how much of it is really required.

In any case, it seems like a Gov't. model in .45 Super would make a nice gun for wild boar and similar sized game. Thoughts?

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.


Glad to hear this! I think I could afford a new recoil spring and buffer easier than a $200-$300 kit. I would assume this would result in a much more magnified "+P" type wear effect on the gun? Just thinking out load I guess, but it's always good to have access to experience
