Was wondering if anyone knows if I was to purchase the .45 version of the 1911 charles daly, if I was to wait until january when the 9mm version comes out if there would be a way to convert the .45 to the 9mm.

Ok I know this sounds blasphamous but give me a sec to explain my reasons.
1. Currently I am considering purchasing two firearms, one for home defense (.45) and one for target shooting (9mm). All the better if I can convert the 1911, which I am comfortable shooting to 9mm for target shooting.
2. A very big reason I was considering purchasing two firearms is the cost of ammo between 9 and 45s. 9mm is pretty much the smallest you can go and still feel like you're shooting a firearm.

I guess my reasons are the same reason why people get the .22 conversions. If there is a way to convert the .45 to a 9mm then I'll probably even have the little .22 conversion. What an idea huh? One gun, three calibers.

Thanks in advance,
UltimaSE

1911 pistols do not readily convert from 45 to 9mm. Requires slide, ejector magazine, recoil spring and bbl. Probably will require bbl bushing too.

converting to a Ceiner 22 top is a simple matter though.
