Re: 460 Rowland

I am still debating whether to go with a GLOCK or 1911 style Rowland.

1) What brand of barrels are you having the best luck?

2) What are pro's and con's of different brands "Muzzle Brakes"?

3) What company are you getting your Glock long slides?

Love the pic's! SEND MORE

Thanks for info.

Re: 460 Rowland

If I had to do it over (and I might) Id probably go with the Clark parts and a 1911. I have Lone Wolf parts on my Glock. While my 10mm works great Im not getting the 45/460 glock to run as smoothly as Id like it to (Definitely not reliable enough to carry for bear protection imo). Check out the Clark website, they have a list of guns they recommend for the conversion and some other info.

I'm building a 460 1911 from scratch with Caspian parts. Can't wait! Using the Clark kit. Anyone have a favorite hunting load.

Re: 460 Rowland

I have a Glock 21 that I recently installed a 6.61" Lone Wolf barrel, compensator and 22# spring with stainless rod. My intension was to shoot 45 Super, but have been reading about the 460 Rowland and 45-08. It seems hit or miss with the Glock 460 feeding 100%. Seems a double magazine spring is needed. Might just have to get the chamber reamed for the Rowland and find out the hard way.
I would like to hear more about others experiences.

Re: 460 Rowland

I have been carrying a 1911 Rowland conversion for work and self defense on Brown bear streams since it came out. My wife liked it so well I converted her 1911 ten years ago.
We haven't any glocks to answer your question however. The only function issue "is too light" a load for the spring given.

I bought a lot of Hornady 200 grain incapsulated semi-wadcutters a long time ago and they put our deer down very nicely. I have all the confidence in this mid-range 44 Mag equivalent on up close and personal Brown ear protection. I have been 12 feet from a very angry momma brownie and had all the confidence that if she came around the large cotton wood I was standing behind she would have had a very permanent severe headache.

Re: 460 Rowland

May I ask what type of sights you put on yours? I was thinking red hi-viz front and white outlined notch, adjustable rear. I getting one built on a caspian frame. Hope to have it in a month or two.

Smith and Wesson K-frame sights on mine. My wife's has the Gold Cup sights.

Both were competition tools for years so I did everything known to increase accuracy and guarantee feeding. Both feed empty cases.

I nice grip laser would be fantastic for sure.
