    Purists are going to hate me for this, but ever since the 5.7x28 came out, I though it would make an awesome 1911 cartridge. Low recoil, flat shooting, and even single stack I bet you could get 10+ rounds in it.

    Back in the 1980s-1990s, there was a wildcat round which was a necked down .45ACP to .22 caliber firing a spitzer bullet.

    Now THAT would reach some major velocity. I personally wouldn't want one, but it would be a bird or squirrels worst nightmare

    It would have been a body armor nightmare. I think that it was necked down to take the 5.56mm bullet.

    I have a 1911 in .45 ACP and .38 Super. I enjoy shooting them both. My current Super load will toss a 124 gr bullet at 1300 fps. Lots of fun!

    I wonder how many of these abominations actually run.

    For a non-45 1911....I always refer to the Browning Hi-Power.

    It is very 1911-ish and it was designed to shoot the 9mm so it runs better than most 9mm 1911s.

    Besides, getting a 1911 and skipping out on the 45 is sort of like buying a Mustang or Camaro and getting the V6. Missing the whole point of said vehicle.
