Just curious if a P-16 mag (.40cal) will fit and fire in a P-14 (.45cal) and what type and extent of work needs to be done to make this work.

Thanks

I'm really curious about your question.

If God didn't want us to own guns, why did He make the 1911?

Unfortunetly no. The Magazines are designed to fit in the same magazine well, and are the same length, but that's the only similarities. The .40 magazine has a reduced interal width due to indents that run throughout the length. The followers are different, and the lips are different. You can, however, buy a conversion kit so that your frame can be .45 and .40 capable. You would have to change out the top end and ejector when you wanted to change over.

Really interesting....Don't ya think??

I did some further checking on this and it seems Newton is correct in what he stated. I'm sorry for any confusion I may have caused. Thank you Newton for straightening this out.
