J&G sold 7.62x25 barrels for the 1911 years ago. The real issue was the magazine with the longer round.And that 'way' is????? I had a Commander in 38 Super MANY years ago made by Colt. I had no problems with it. BUT it is my understanding that using the 1911 for other than the intended use REQUIRES A LOT OF R&D. Am I wrong???
