I have been following a lot of the 460/45 SUPER treads for a while and was wondering if anyone had any experience with guncrafters 50 gi conversion kit? And if some one had thought about making 50 Gi (acp level pressure) and pushing it to 45 SUPER levels?
I would think it would depend on how well supported the oem chambers are. Since there probably aren't a lot of options if any for gi barrels for a glock other than from guncrafters.
And then how strong is the brass? I read somewhere it was made by Starline.
I started thinking about this as since Lonewolf came out with there new slim grip Glock 21/20 frames.
So if I don't have a slide anyway might as well get something that would shoot a round with an inherently larger meplat projectiles.
Purpose of gun would be defence against scary 4 legged animals shooting hardcast with a semi auto thats not some ridiculously sized movie prop. So the 50 gi (.500) would let you shoot 50AE bullets and light & properly shaped 500 S&W bullets which should have a bigger meplat =bigger wound channel.
>Cost- Slide is more, mags cost more and $.50 per brass
>Supply limitations- seams for the most part everything you would need exep bullets and powder primers you would have to get from GI
>Figuring it out- new round no published reloading data for 50 gi +P+
>9 round only in flush mag in glock 21 frame
>Wouldn't have the 45 colt market to steal cool bullets from
>It's a 50 cool points
>I would think it would do more damage if it were to be loaded to SUPER levels.
40 SUPER < 45 SUPER < 50 SUPER
>Could use 50AE and light 500 S&W bullets .4 + meplat options
Who has a glock GI kit and can take a pic or can attest to its chamber support?
Anyone have experience with the brass from GI?
If need to get an aftermarket barrel how hard expensive would it be to have one made?
Let me know if I'm missing something or if this road has been traveled I searched but didn't find anything
And yes I know this might be more work and money and time to do this then to jest get a 45 set up but where's the fun in that? And how would we know what we can do if someone doesn't try it or at least talk about it.
