What is involved in the conversion, and obtaining or making ammunition?
The conversion kits are available on line, and take about 10 to 15 minutes if you are converting a modern, strong framed 1911. Basically a drop-in that includes replacing the recoil spring with a much stouter one than the stock 1911. Ammo is also available, but I've not yet worked the reload portion of the equation. It's not a piece that you take to the range and shoot all day long, so I figuring that the 40 rounds I purchased will last long enough for me to figure out the reloading technique, using the brass I collect from the factory fodder.
