tanong lang po since i plan to get another full size 1911 but in 9mm, either a norinco or armscor, single stack. then i want to replace (or cut) the barrel to a commander lenght. then i want to cut the slide so that the commander lenght barrel would protrude about 3/8 to 1/2 inch (that is why i'm not getting the pistol in commander lenght originally since the sight placement will be odd if i cut 3/8 to 1/2 inch off the slide, while the full lenght one will give me much leeway). somebody slap me if you think this is a stupid idea. also i want it bobtailed!! deos anyplace here in the P.I. sells those ed brown bobtail mainspring housing or a clone of it?? or does anyone know gunsmiths here capable of fabricating this?? and since the barrel is protruded, is it wise to have it compensated by having a 1/16" thick slash cut about 45 degree angle starting 1/8" from the front travelling 30% into the barrel? then novak sight, reduced beavertail, stub hammer... am i making sense to anyone???
