I am interested in a 9x23 1911 pistol, and I want to know if the following is feasible:

1. Buy a full-size springfield 1911 9mm
2. Simply swap out barrel and mags.

Will this work ,or am I missing something? Will 9x23 mags fit and function in it properly? what do I need to do in order to get a good barrel (where from) and how can I fit it or get it fit properly? Is there a better or cheaper way to get a 9x23 1911 (please bear in mind thatI am a college student). Thanks for any help.

Yes you can do that. Depending on the loads you use you will have to match the recoil spring to it. Call SA they will fit a barrel to the gun for about 150.00. You might be able to order a 9x23 direct from SA for a slight upcharge.
