Do a search since this question has been covered before. Basically you need a new slide, barrel, frame and a few other parts. It's not a practical conversion and you'd be better off selling the .45 and buying a 9x23.

9X23

DAVE, THANK YOU FOR THE REPLY. AS FAR AS I KNOW THERE IS'NT A 9X23 IN A 4" THAT EXCEPTS THE STANDARD 9X23 COLT 9 ROUND CLIP. I OWN A COLT 9X23 5" AND WOULD LIKE THE SAME IN 4". THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME, DAN

It would be much cheaper and easier to find a 9mm or .38 Super pistol in the size/configuration that you want and convert that by installing a new barrel and a few other parts. A .45 ACP gun has the wrong size breechface and frame ramp for a 9x23.

THANKS AGAIN, DID THEY MAKE THE COMBAT COMMANDER IN 38 SUPER?. I KNOW THEY DID IN THE COMMANDER MODEL BUT IT HAS THE ALLOY FRAME, WHICH COULD BE HARD TO FIND ONE WITH A GOOD FRAME. DAN

Yes they made the .38 super in a steel frame Commander. I have a series 70 one. (Sorry, NO it is not for sale.)

Best,

Ray

Depending on how your 9x23 5" is set-up and if you want an exact set-up Commander you might be better off getting a Caspian frame and get a 9mm or .38 Super set-up from Ebay. Then you would just need a new barrel. Which incidentally I just bought a new 9x23 (Nowlin) Commander barrel on Ebay, so you could get lucky and pick up all of the stuff cheap. It depends on your skill level as well. If you need a gunsmith to do the work that would add cost.

Good luck.

10MM, THE 9X23 5" BOUGHT NEW FROM COLT SOME YEARS AGO. I WAS THINKING OF USING THE NOWLIN BARREL AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW THE ONE YOU GOT WORKED OUT?. OR DO YOU KNOW OF A BETTER ONE. THANK YOU FOR THE INPUT AND I WILL CHECK IT OUT ON COSTS. DAN

Turkeyshooter, If your 9x23 is an original then it will be hard to find a Commander to match it since it was an Enhanced model. As far as I know there was a run of 100 38 super Enhanced models. I have one that I fitted with 3 barrels a 9mm, 38 super, and 9x23. My son shoots it in IDPA.
They made 38 supers in Commanders and Combat Commanders in pre 70, 70 series, and 80 series. They are out there.
