by comparison, same size gun, and it does so in a gun that's easier to ccw, has a .22 unit, has low cost, readily available ammo, etc. Hey dummies, the ONLY diff between Rowland and .45 ACP is a barrel and spring swap. Takes about 20 seconds to swap calibers. between Rowland and .45 ACP. If use the "all caliber" Spld Ejector, and their slides, you can swap to 9mm just as fast, too. If not, only adds about 1 minute to swap ejectors.

The Rowland gets a 200 gr jhp. to 1450 fps, in a gun that's only 8.5" long. A 4" barreled N frame smith is 9.5" long. Cut that barrel to 3", and SEE if your .41 can get a 200 gr jhp to 1450 fps. It can't. Put a 6" barrel in the 1911, and the .460 will get that 200 gr jhp to 1500 fps, too. The 4" 41 will do nothing of the kind. Nor is .41 ammo $20 per 100 rds at Wally world, like bulk pack .45 ACP is.

think what u want, dumb <font color=red>[**censored**]</font>. :-)

Several of my buddies had or still have Blackhawks, M57's, M58's, etc. .41's a joke. The .45 L COLT beats it, and can use .45 ACP bullets, far more readily available. Given the .45 ACP cylinder, it can use .45 ACP ammo.

the .45 ACP has lots of LIES told about

it, mostly. It was NOT used against the Moros, in the Philippines, for instance. :) The Phillipine Insurrection was OVER with before the 1911 saw general issue. 'The 9mm and .45 ball are nearly identical in performance. With a good chest hit, they stop guys about 2 times in three, if the guys are really intent on continuing the attack. Oftentimes, all soldiers really WANT is a good excuse to get out of the fighting. Especially, late in the War, which IS when the US got into the World Wars. LATE. The Europeans had been fighting Hitler for nearly 4 years before D Day, ya know. Ditto in WW1.
