    does anyone think this would be possible? im leaning towards yes with a custom barrel made up by a competent smith/machinist. and possibly a heavier slide. or one could make some nice looking weight inserts by pocketing out the side of the slide and pressing in some mallory metal like they use on crank shafts or some other metal denser than the slide material that would still fit the bill. just my ideas. some one school me if i am way off base! thanx in advance!

    s. does anyone know any good reliable sources for 17HM2 ammo in GA? any one besides my neighbor and myself still shoot it? :D
