Can you shoot 40 s&w in a sr 1911 like you can in a colt delta 1911?

If one had a Ruger SR1911-10 and fit a new barrel in it for 40S&W and probably a new recoil spring and of course 40 S&W mags then I think it would be doable. Best to consult a local gun smith. Below the difference in rounds with the revolver on the top which is a 10mm/40S&W Ruger Blackhawk Convertible which has a cylinder for each round.

The expense might be worth it in 1911 land if one had a source of cheap or free 40 S&W.
