Hi Folk's, I know this isn't Ruger specific & hope it's ok to ask. Do you folk's know if anyone manufactures a 1911 in .40 S&W ? Hoping to find one in Commander size that's affordable-Thank's for any help-Dave

No ... Simply because the 1911's themselves would never allow that crappy caliber to ever pass through its barrel.

I believe STI & Para have some .40 caliber offerings in 1911's but I'm not sure if they are exactly what you are looking for.

Unless one has access to unlimited FREE .40 ammo, I can't see the point of a .40 1911. If you have a 1911, you can shoot .45 in it! The .40 is a great cartridge for smaller guns that you can't stuff a .45ACP round into.

I had a 10mm Colt Delta Elite once. It was a 1911. Does that count?

This goes out to my ol' compadre Rev: My belief is that JB's old 1911 is the ideal platform to launch what I feel to be a superior round, that being the bottle necked .357 Sig round. Hard to beat magnum ballistics, and feed reliability of the Sig round. Child's play for an all steel 1911.

Ah, c'mon AW ... The 357 Sig was, and is, just an answer looking for a question that nobody ever asked ..... :D

Bottle necked pistol caliber ? SACRILEGE ! LOL !

If I ever were to get into rolling my own ammunition I would like a 10mm. I like the idea of it & it is the only semi auto caliber that really seems appropriate for a woods gun.

The only thing better than that would be free unlimited .45 acp!

I can see not wanting to add another caliber to stock/reload for. The trouble in this case is .40 1911's seem to be scarce. Good luck, when I googled it, there are lots of references to them. Then when I went to the manufactures pages, there were none listed.

If Ruger came out with caliber exchange kits for the SR1911, I bet .40 would be a good seller. .22lr would be nice too! Ed

Only problem with a .40 conversion kit for (any) 1911 is that you'd have to swap out the frame-mounted ejector, which isn't impossible but is a big PITA*. (This is handled on .22LR conversions by fixing the ejector to the barrel, but this isn't possible on the bigger .40.)

*It's not hard to do once, but not something you'd want to do on a regular basis, or switch out at the range.

Another thread where rev is more interested causing controversy than helping answering the question. It is quite o vious he is more interested in raising his post count than helping anyone.

To the op I'm only aware of sti putting the .40 in a 1911 platform. The last couple of years I have began to really enjoy the .40's and would like 1911 in .40 the only this GS that bother me is the small primers and the . 40 cases get stuck inside my .45 cases.
I can't wait to hear the wisdom and experience the almighty rev will bestow on us the less knowledgeable and unworthy

Some people are so thick headed, dense, and lacking in any kind of sense of humor that they can't tell a tongue-in-cheek statement when they read it ....

Your amateurish and immature sniping always makes me laugh though ... Thanks ! :D

Hey ... That's another post .... +1 ... LOL....
