Anybody see a problem converting an un-fired Stainless Target 38 Super into a 9mm.

Want to use Nowlin Gunsmith Barrel and Bushing with AFTEC Extractor........

The super breech face is a little larger than the 9mm. I am not sure of the measurements but they were posted by George Smith of EGW. George listed the tolerences for the breechface as to what he thought was acceptable. That being said I have done it with a older Colt 38 super and it runs fine(my breech face must be in spec).
