    Because simmunitions wants an excessive amount of money for their coversion kits, I was wondering if anyone here had converted any semiauto pistols to fire simmunitions ammunition.

    The police department I work for will have acess to some 1911's given to them by the DOD.

    What would be involved in converting them to shoot simmunitions.

    I would like to help, but that is a rather special application that most civvy gunsmiths are not going to have a lot of experiance with. Best guess is convert from swinging link barrel to fixed barrel with no locking lugs, making a straight blowback out of a 1911....

    The conversion kits are designed to prevent live ammo from being fired accidently. They convert the pistols to straight blowback. The liabilaty risk may not be worth building conversions for sale or others to use.
