    Compact witness .45 acp

    I have a Tangfolio (EAA) steel compact witness in .45 acp. I was wanting to try the caliber conversion (I can probably talk my wife into this ($$$$), instead of another handgun purchase). My question is this: in the process of converting caliber, is it possible to convert to full, seeing that the lower units appear to be identical and the slide, barrel, spring are the only rewal changes (mag too)?
    The gun shoots flawlessly but is expensive since I don't reload. Was wanting to go with the 38 super or 22LR.

    Hmm, not sure what you mean by convert to full, but I know someone on here will have the answer for you... From what I have learned from this site, most conversion kits seem to just be the barrel and mag that switch out... Not sure for your specific gun.

    the weapon state's it's a compact, by converting to full I think he means to convert a compact to a full size handgun.

    I have been to their site and know what calibers are available. My question is can I convert to a full size in the process and will that create a magazine issue? The frames look identical, but what about magazines?

    Gunners Mate you are correct. Sorry for the poor explaination.
