    Yes, but why would you want to?

    Historic note here...
    At the time of his death in Chicago, John Dillinger was thought to be carrying a 1911 modified to fire full auto. Not that it does much good in the holster, or with 7 round mags.....

    There were a couple of guys that did legal 1911 full auto conversions, once upon a time. I believe that there are a few transferrable ones on form 4's out on the market, but I doubt you'd ever get an owner to part with one, and if you did it would cost you an arm and a leg. I saw an article on them a while back but I can't remember which magazine, perhaps it was in Small Arms Review.

    Mariner is a troll....

    You know this topic is not open for discussion on GT.
    The "thread police" are on their way. Run Mariner, run!

    Don't know why anyone would wanna...

    But on kinda a related historical note, I always wanted to see what the modified lever action rifle that John Moses Browning first modified to fire in a fully automatic mode. I've seen a drawing of it, but I'd love to see it in action. Parts moving here and there, back and forth.

    Too bad he'd be a felon nowadays if he tried that. It's a sad state of affairs when genius mechanical engineers (or an idiot like me) cannot even discuss such topics without running afoul of "conspiracy" type laws.

    Is this a great country or what? To have produced an actual JMB/Maxim and the very same laws that would make them evil doers.

    Adios

    somebody better lock this thread for our own good soon.

    My .40 Infinity shot a .05 split once, shortly after I lightened a spring too much. The RO said it went "full auto" but I said" nah, I've just been practicing a whole lot". Of course RO's always win when safety is an issue and now the gun shoots .17 splits, like they are supposed to.

    VN350X10,

    I don't know if Dillinger was carrying the particular gun when he died, but there are pictures of him carrying this gun.

    Actually I saw a story about his guns somewhere. Discovery channel maybe. He and his goons had a gunsmith build them .38 Super 1911's that were full auto and fed rounds from a highly modified magazine well built to hold a Thompson machine gun magazine.

    If I recall correctly they showed video of someone shooting one of these guns, and it was an awesome sight.

    It's been several years since I saw the story, so I can't remember all the details. Sorry.

    I read a post on the 1911forum.com about a guy with a new Kimber that would double, triple, quadruple or empty a hole mag nearly every time he pulled the triger. The goof actually sent it back. ;I

    Years ago, I remember reading about the Canadian 1911 variant being made in full-auto. Can't remember the name, but I saw photos and they were in fact manufactured. I also remember the muzzle kept wanting to come up. Hopefully, it was out of ammo by the time it reached your chin.

    I've had a .45 auto go full auto on me with two rounds left in the mag. It's a scary experience, and the gun is totally uncontrollable. The gun was a used Colt Mk 4 that I bought from a buddy. He was like the third known owner of the gun. At some point in this gun's life someone had shortened the disconnector to get a better trigger pull! ;Q

    Hmmm...I'll have to remember that one next time I crack one of my 1911's open. Where is that spare disconnector?;P

    I read a thread on this over at 1911forum, the general consensus is that a standard 1911 shooting at full auto has more of a chance of hitting you in the forehead than your target. It is possible but it is very dangerous.
