Tomás Pabón: what was the reaction after they came home with that beast gun?
Christopher Swenson: The 45wm in underwood ammo in 230grain is 1600fps 1300 energy, one of the hottest loads there is for this cal. even buff bore 45wm loads are lower numbers. nobody can load this cal to anywhere near 2000 fps or energy. i love the 45wm as i do 460 rowland have both but 2000 fps and or energy is only achieved in handguns that are revolvers. even the 50ae which trumps both of these cals in numbers, about 1600 fps with 1700 energy in 300 grain, cannot achieve the 2000 mark. and being the desert eagle is one of the least reliable designs in large semiauto cals its not even a option for hunting or defense. the only cals reaching and exceeding 2000 fps and energy that i have shot are the 500 and 460 mag revolvers. if you can find a 45wm at a decent price, 1000 or under, grab it up, internals last forever and about 4 ammo manufacturers still produce ammo if u dont reload. as for the mark 1 being beefier not really true as in ability to shoot hotter rounds, the mark 1 just has a bit more steel on the slide and frame, about an oz worth and the other models just shaved some of the weight off. if this shooter was getting 2000fps he would of included video of the chrono results its just not true. still one of the great rarer large cals out there and i own one.
William Knight: I had a LRR 44 mag.... I regret selling it many years ago.
Johnathan Devereaux: I have a Mark I also. For those that say it can't shoot a 230gr bullet at 2100 fps, it most certainly can. I have the dies for reloading mine. Shooting through a chronograph, I have attained just over 2000 fps, I have no doubt I could squeeze out another 100 fps. I don't regularly load them that hot, 1800 fps is plenty, any higher and the recoil becomes problematic. I love shooting it at the range, as soon as you fire off a round, all heads turn and the faces have that WTF? look!
Scott Bailey: Had the .45 win mag Mark V. I sold it. Biggest regret in my life.
1982KMG: No way 2100fps with a 230gr.! But still very powerful @1600!!
Michael Cote: .460 ROWLAND!!!
Nightand Fog: I've had an LAR Grizzly Win Mag pistol for almost 20 years. It is one of my favorite guns. Back then one could buy caliber conversion kits for around 150.00. They came in 45acp, 10mm, 357 mag, and 357/45 Grizzly Win Mag. I eventually bought all of the conversion kits. This gun is long out of production, but Perry Arnett, the sole owner of the patent and blue prints, told me via email he is looking to reproduce this gun if he can assemble the right team and backing. He also has other conversion kits engineered, should production begin again. As things are now, these pistols regularly sell for over 1500.00 and the conversion kits go for 300-500 a piece if you can find them. I've see 357/45gwm kits go for 900.00+ Anyway, these are very tight, beefy and well made guns. They should be. Perry supervised production himself.
Sweet water 420: Dude you posted this video in 2010 post a video of you shooting it already

PoliticalSmackdown: Roy Charles Jr yes getting 45 win mag is impossible and expensive however you can buy new cases and load your own if you want to play with exotics this is sadly the price you pay. 45 win mag is a great round and will stop a truck but it is hard as hell to find. oh if you load i suggest starline brass. they will make it for you.
PoliticalSmackdown: BikerBoyCB900C not that i am trying to give you crap but 1911 variants do not use clips.
PoliticalSmackdown: need magazines for this badly
jtaylorb88: My coworker was one of the families that owned that company. They sold it out to Remington who since have done nothing with it hardly. Those guns now go for a ton of cash! I tell him to start making them again.
Oscar Reyes: In whats Store an i finde ammo
Colin Cutter: I've been wanting to build a 1911 in .45 win mag. The one thing causing me hesitation on doing so is the availability of magazines. I REALLY don't want to pay $150+ per magazines. Does anyone know if there are any magazines that will feed or could easily be modified to feed the cartridge, for example Desert Eagle .44 magnum magazines, or anything like that. If so, any help would be appreciated
BikerBoyCB900C: I had one back in the 80's was a Mark I the firearm was great the clips where crap!!! The firearm was totally unreliable because of it. This was the problem the clips, the ears if you kept the firearm loaded the spring pressure would force the ears up and out and then you would get rounds feeding nose up into the top of the barrel and other feeding issues. What needs to be done is take your clips to a gunsmith minus the follower and spring and have them harden the steel of the clip frame, I heard this solves the problem? I never thought of doing this at the time, I ported the pistol, polished the slide ramp everything and could never get it to function I finally traded it for a Desert Eagle in 44 Mag. Oh and I had the conversion kits for 45 ACP and 357 Mag I think was the other one I had and none of them functions worth a damn!!!
DogisRain Co.: I've had mine since 1991. Ammo is getting REAL hard to find. Draws a crowd every time at the indoor range.
Eusebiu Skurtu: I don't consider the Grizzly and the Coonan to be 1911's since you can't interchange parts with a Colt 1911. Great guns.
Dave S: I have a Contender Barrel chambered in .45 Win Mag
