    1911 45 to 9mm Conversion

    123
    1911's have never been my main interest in handguns, so I don't know as much about them as other firearms, but I do own a Llama MAX-I 45 L/F. Can any 45ACP 1911 be converted to 9mm (and swapped back and forth) or is it a special task? Mags, barrel, link, and barrel bushing.... what else would one need?

    Scorpion,

    As far as I know the easiest to convert to a 9mm would be one made for a 38sp.
    Changing the barrel, bushing and mags.
    It would probably be better to buy one already chambered in 9mm. Then you could shoot one in each hand

    No, the ejector and feed ramp are not made for 9mm. This comes up a lot. You would need an entirely new upper (slide, barrel), and you would have to make some changes to the frame.

    Thanks! That's the kind of information that I need.
