  1. Thomas,

    I went shooting the .460 Rowland today. I shot about 150 rounds, to include all of your three types of ammo, and everything else that I’ve loaded up. The pistol functioned flawlessly, and it’s quite accurate to boot. The new firing pin made a great difference, no more torn up primers. You do great work!

    Thanks again

  2. Hello Dave,

    I received my kit yesterday for my 1911. I greatly appreciate you sending me the kit in a timely manner, your customer service is awesome! Your communication was great- thank you for telling me about the guide rod, and spring plug not being blued- that would have been a surprise. I assembled the kit in the gun and the fit is great, the alignment of the compensator is perfect as well. I removed that red dot that covered the “pin and weld” and covered the hole with black high temp paint (I figured it looked batter than the red dot). I gotta say this is a real sweet shooter! It cycled .45acp perfectly and dropped the brass about 3 feet away. When shooting the Mighty .460 Rowland cartridge the gun was very accurate and the brass flew about 10+ feet away. It cycled perfectly with whatever I put into it. I did have a few primer strikes where the primers blew threw- is the extended firing pin what I need to remedy this? (“YES, it is!”… .460 Rowland) I am very pleased with the results of this cartridge.

    I will be purchasing ammo and a T-shirt shortly for a YouTube .460 kit, and ballistics/chrono test…..I greatly appreciate your customer service and help. I have had a good experience with this company and want everyone to know about it.
