Caliber Conversion Unit
you order our Model No.1 pistol "born" in .45 ACP or have our .45 ACP
conversion unit fitted to your 50 GI cal. Model No. 1, the advantages are the
same: A very low recoiling and fast shooting pistol with the strongest, most
reliable.45 ACP magazines ever made for a 1911 pistol. Since the 50 GI and
the .45 ACP cartridges have identical rim/base dimensions changing calibers
is simple and fast. The conversion unit consists of barrel, magazine and guide
rod/plug with appropriate recoil sping.
Please go to our "Model No1 .45 ACP " page for further details.
Our .45 ACP conversion unit is not a drop- in,
fit all unit. With all the attention to fit, finish and function that goes
into building the Model No.1 pistol it
would not do the pistol justice to simply "throw on" a conversion unit. Each
conversion unit starts out with an oversize, match grade barrel that is meticulously
handfitted to the individual pistol.
Pistol is then tested thoroughly for accuracy
and funtion with a variety of ammunition types.
In addition to the cost of
the conversion unit there is a (labor) fitting charge for same, please see "Pricing" page.
