If you do not see your go-to gun listed, please consider the general criteria below. 

BASIC CRITERIA FOR A SUCCESSFUL 1911 CONVERSION PLATFORM

We recommend that you contact the manufacturer (as necessary) to confirm your gun meets our requirements:
• Modern, High-Quality, i.e. fully heat-treated slide {to Rockwell-C hardness > 36}
• Standard 5″, Normally Ramped, i.e. not fully ramped, 
• Standard Barrel Bushing Configuration, i.e. no bull barrels
• Not a “double-stack”….we have had very little success converting guns with DS magazines

If in doubt, many gunsmiths can do the relatively simple Rockwell Hardness test on your slide.

In some cases, less-expensive 1911’s may present a problem as their slides are sometimes “spot-treated”. We require that the slide be fully heat-treated, to ensure it will not deform under the pressures of the Mighty .460 Rowland®.

WHY CHOOSE .460 ROWLAND® 1911 CONVERSIONS

There’s quite a bit that goes into each .460 Rowland® conversion barrel for a 1911 pistol.

Imitation may be considered a form of flattery to some folks, but we disagree.

Here’s a clear list of features that you get when you buy 100% authentic .460 Rowland® conversions straight from the source.
