    Guys, I have a very old .38 Super Auto and I am considering converting this to 9 mm Luger or to .45 Auto. Is this possible?
    What pieces do I need to replace to do this?
    I know, the .38 Super is one of the finest cartridges ever produced but is kind of scarce around my location and I would like to use an easier to find round on this gun.

    Response no longer needed.

    What you need is a 9x19 barrel, and 9 mm magazines (if needed because .38 super magazines usually work fine with 9 mm.)
    Maybe a recoil spring can be also required but it is quite unlikely.
