convert kimber

Can I convert my Kimber Pro Carry series 1 .40 S&W to .45 by just changing barrels?

no, you will need a complete upper: slide assembly, barrel, bushing as the 45 has a different breach face. You may need to fit a new ejector to work with both calibers.....and some new magazines.

Hope that helps !

That's what I thought but wasn't sure.
Thanks Bob

Just fyi, it is possible to convert the .40 S&W 1911s to 10mm in some if not most cases. However I'm not sure if that's desirable or not...

Brian,

If you are interested, .38 Super is also an option, inasmuch as Kimber uses the .40 breach face for their .38 Super.

If indeed Kimber uses a 40 breechface for Their 38 Super , I would go with the 9x23 Winny over the 38 Super anyday...9x23 Win. case is much stronger than a 38 Super allowin' many more FPS.....10mm is a good choice

I agree with Wild Bill. 9x23 would be a scorcher!
