    On a different note, has anyone here bought a Rock River Arms in 9mm/.22tcm? That 22tcm is one hot round, out of a 1911 pistol. Over 2000 fps! You can see it on youtube.

    .22 TCM, 1911 platform, with a 9MM barrel thrown in . Had to look it up. I've pretty much talked may self out buying a new gun, but this concept might be fun. Ammo is being made in the states and Cheaper Than Dirt is going to carry it. I wonder how accurate it is going to be. Veddy interesting Dr. Watson. It uses a 40 grain .223 size bullet, no reason it can't be reloaded, bottle neck cartridges work in a auto, Hmmm, I wonder, since I don't have a 9MM on a 1911 platform.:eek:

    I love my RRA1911 but it will be a cold day in hell before I get a plastic one.

    I don't have a problem with polymer, just don't want it for my 1911.

    If you want a polymer, buy a Glock, FN, XD, or whatever is designed and engineered specifically for the application. The 1911 was never intended for Polymer. I predict failure, unless they sell them for $200 or less!
