Wacky 1911 thought

Recommended Posts

Would putting an officer slide with a 4 inch bull barrel on a government frame work? Other than being incredibly ugly is there anything that prevents it functioning?

Not from what I've read in 1911 forums, in fact Colt, Wilson and others have made them at some point.

More capacity and easier to hold onto.  But, to carry in a holster, it's backward.  The handle is the hard part to conceal, barrel sits next to leg and length really doesn't make any difference

I’m just one of those people who likes different stuff for the sake of novelty. Carry wise I truck around a government anyway. I had read a couple places that different variations tend to be less reliable but hadn’t been able to find anything on this one. Plus I can run the upper on a frame I already have so wouldn’t cost a complete fortune.
