So I saw a tanfoglio 41 AE small frame

.41 ae has a rebated rim, using the same breech face as 9mm. They also made a 9mm ae that was the 41 ae necked back down to 9mm, so, basically the same idea as 40 s&w, but allowed for even easier conversion than 40 s&w in 9mm based pistols.

IMHO, none of the ae cartridges are worth bothering with, but kinda neat ideas.

I brought back a Tanfoglio "IPSC Ultra" from when I was stationed in Germany. It had the words "IPSC Ultra" on the slide a DVC shield on the hard chrome frame and a DVC serial number. Since it was a 9mm breach face slide I fitted a Briley 6" 9mm barrel and had it trimmed back and then picked up some 9mm mags for it. This is still the most accurate 9mm I own with either jacketed or lead bullets. It also takes allt he small frame stuff like the single action flat trigger.

You can drop a 9mm barrel into it (I even have a 6" barrel for sale ;) ) and you're correct that few parts cross over between frame sizes.

You have anymore of these barrels for sale? Looks like I didn't move fast enough on the other one.
