After reading several posts regarding the Springfield Armory 9mm and the 9x23 cartridge, they will likely be appearing in my collection. I would like to know what is involved in converting the 9x19 1911 into 9x23. Is it as easy as a recoil spring and barrel change, or is there more to it? Thanks in advance for your knowledge and experiences.

Well, just to quantify, I'm no expert on the matter but.......
alot of other things beside the spring and bbl need work. the ejector,extractor, and breechface just to name a few.

send it to a good smith, my pick being Dane.

regards,
