    After their clever Glock PDW conversion kit (to whichs quality I can attest personally) German manufacturer HERA ARMS has again put an interesting kit on the market which makes the venerable 1911 extremely versatile. Contrary to other handgun conversion kits on the market you are running your trusty reliable Glock/1911 system in the Hera Arms kit without the need to use another slide or barrel. For you poor SBR-law guys, it can be used without a buttstock (with a sling for support like the old Steyr TMP or a micro Uzi) or with a longer barrel and shroud. In a few minutes you are back to the plain vanilla 1911. But imagine that one with a longer 10mm/.45 Super barrel. It adds lots of railspace, makes mounting of a reddot sight easy and keeps the (hopefully) trusted reliability of the 1911 platform.

    Cool concept with a Glock, but it would seem pointless when limited to a 10 round magazine. If they made one for the STI/SVI 2011 it would make more sense, but a Glock with 33rd mag for me please.

    Yup.
    Interesting with a high cap combat gun. Not so much with a 1911.

    Got my conversion kit by Hera Arms. It adds lots of railspace, makes mounting of a reddot sight easy and keeps
    the trusted reliability of the 1911 platform. For you poor SBR-law guys, it can be used without a buttstock (with a sling
    for support like the old Steyr TMP or a micro Uzi). In a few minutes you are back to the plain vanilla 1911.

    fully equipped it will look like this:

    I wonder if the non stock version would be CA legal. I regret not buying a Marlin Camp .45 back in the day.
