    Mga sirs, isang hirit pa ;f . If im going to convert the .38S to .40, anu-ano ang kailangan palitan besides the barrel? I also want a bull barrel, san ba makakabili ng bull barrel for standard 1911? lahat kasi ng nakikita ko puro for para ordnance lang. And lastly, kaninong gunsmith okay magpa-fit? (including the price and the quality of work). Costs pa pala, magkano lahat kaya ang magagastos sa conversion? Gusto ko yata ipa-convert na lang kaysa .38S ang gamit ko pag nag-join na ako sa comp. Help me decide please. Thanks.

    go to col. bayang's place. he has a lot of conversion kit there at mura pa dre. he also has scheumann and barsto barrel cal.40. try to call him at 840-1362. BTW, im not connected with his shop, just one of his customers. Mag .40 ka na dre, .38 super kasi is minor lang if you play standard, otherwise, mag open ka na lang which is much expensive in terms of accessories. :cool:

    thanks sir. tawagan ko si col pag decided na ako. do you think mas practical kung kukuha na lang ako ng armscor hi-cap in .40 kaysa sa pa-convert ko? anu-ano ba dapat palitan sa NIB na armscor? puede na ba gamitin ang armscor out of the box? reliable? sensya na sa mga tanong. thanks.

    Sa armscor 40, it depends on what you get. If you're lucky then out of the box it can run perfectly. Your only option is to get one and then break it in. From there you will know which parts you would need to replace.

    +1, good idea also. actually, maganda ang armscor .40. It already has bull barrel, novak style rear sight. Palagyan mo na lang ng fiber optic front sight and magwell and presto! competition gun na 16+1 round capacity pa and mura pa mecgar mags. Saka mo na lang pa-kulayan pag gasgas at bugbog na. just my 2 cents dre. :)

    +2 from me. armscor hi cap in .40

    palitan mo mga original parts to your preferred premium brands hanggang kaya ng budget. in the long run, you'll get a very nice competition pistol

    doc alvin, magkano kaya unit price ng stock armscor na .40 cal?
    yung SAM kasi is around P24k(15+1 high-cap) kaso lang di ambi-safety pero meron na built-in na mag-guide tsaka full dust cover narin yun frame. ;f

    di pa din siya ramped barrel at bull barrel like the armscor .40

    SAM na din sana kukunin ko last year at the gunshow because of the very attractive price pero nag-dalawang isip ako and turned to armscor pero napa-tatlong isp ulit ako when somebody offered me an SPS, di naman ako nagsisisi sa kaka-iisip ko... ;f

    thanks for the price info GM Jason. ;f
    armscor 9mm + scope + schuemann barrel + comp = open, ano kaya....;Q^7 ^5

    judge, yun nga lang problema sa SAM na .40 cal 'di ramped supported yun barrel. pero madali lang naman ata ipa-modify yun internal ng frame to accept a ramp supported barrel e. ang habol ko lang kasi sa SAM na cal .40 is the long dust covered frame & built-in magwell. 'di mo na kailangan ipa modify yun frame to have those.;f ;)

    new barrel is 15-20k (barsto or schuemann). gunsmithing to fit the new barrel approx 5k. that's extra 20k gastos.

    convert to long dust cover approx 8k + 3k pa refinish.

    moral of the story: buy mc_oliver's pistol! wala ka na problema!

    kita mo doc, ayaw talaga pakawalan ni mc_o yung boomer nya. ;f

    bosing mc_o, ano kaya kung set-up ay SAM .40 cal + c-more + schuemann + egw comps.;f
    sa tingin ko kasi walang problema sa barrel to frame fitting tsaka frame mods. i might get those works for free. ;f ;) ;)
    na meet kuna kasi personally yung new Pres. ng SAM. we exchange pleasantries and also regularly communicate to each other thru emails. i got also a promise(verbal & emails) that he'll be giving me discounts(hopefully big)on all the parts, ammos and accessories that i'll be purchasing directly doon sa factory nila. it really sounds so:cool:
