      I saw that conversion kit too, but according to this link the 50GI doesn't really offer anything more than a 45, other than greater bullet diameter. It seems to really increase absolute power, the 45 Super is the ticket....

      Correction: After reading ACE's FAQ (what a concept..) I see that a converted pistol can fire 45 Super or 45 ACP rounds with nothing to switch/change, making it even more versatile (and more powerful) than the 50GI conversion.

      That was just the first thing that popped up when I Googled "Glock 21 .45 Super conversion." I'm sure there are others.

      There aren't actually, as Ace has the patent of "45 Super". But what I've since learned (practicing Google-Fu) is that all that is required is a stiffer recoil spring. Porting is mentioned a couple places but not required... And Buffalo Bore manufactures 45 Super ammo, so that what I'll do for the times I backpack into black bear territory...

      Correct, just get a stiffer recoil spring.
