.460 Rowland Conversion Kit

Ever want a honking big handgun like a .44 magnum but didn't like the heavy recoil or want to invest in another gun? Would you like to hunt with your 1911 .45 but wished it had a little more stopping power? Well get yourself a .460 Rowland conversion kit for your 1911 and have it all. 230 grain Nosler jacket hollow point moving at 1400 fps generating 1001 foot pounds of energy that feels easier then shooting .45+P.

If you have a 5" 1911 you can buy a complete conversion kit for $323.00 add some ammo and your good to go. The .460 Rowland case is just a little longer then the .45 case, you can chamber and fire a .45 in the .460 Rowland but you can't chamber a .460 Rowland in a .45.

This is the complete kit, you get everything you need to make the full conversion. It's just a matter of removing your slide and swapping out parts.










The .460 is on the left next to a standard .45.



I'm sorry but these are the only pictures I have of it, if anyone is interested in seeing anything in particular let me know what it is and I'll take pictures and post them.

That looks like it will dispatch most anything with a minimal amount of ammunition used! One shot one kill kind of thing!

The conversion kit is not considered a firearm and can be mailed directly to you, they also make them for Glocks. The new gun and conversion kit cost me about $950.00.

I think it shoots easier then .45+P, that compensator really works great. Shooting normal .45's through it is a dream.

The whole reason we all have 45s is cuz they don't make a 46. Till now.
