I have 3 pistols chanbered in .357 Magum. I have 3 rifles chambered in .357 Magnum.
I want a .357 Magnum semi-auto. I know, I know. Why not get a 10mm? Why not get a .40? Because I reload .357, have a ton of .357 ammo and don't want to introduce another caliber. I so eagerly want a .357 semi-auto carbine.
If anyone else is interested in one of these conversions, please contact MechTech today and show your support. They won't build a conversion unless you ask. They are already doing conversions for other 1911s. I want them to build an upper for the Coonan 1911.

After contacting them, please share this post to other gun blogs so the interest can spread. I don't want to have to pay a gunsmith thousands of dollars to do this conversion for me.
I wasn't quite sure whether to put this post in handguns or long guns forum. Technically, it's both.
So I'm thinking of upgrading my carry from an gen 1 LCP to a micro 1911 (I like the platform and that's what I typically shoot). I understand for 1911s, we check the barrel to slide to frame fit and that's typically an indication of quality/accuracy.
I've handled about 3 or 4 different Sig p938s and a Springfield 911 recently. And they are loose - lateral movement of the slide, able to press down and move the barrel, etc.
Did I just happen upon poor representaion of these guns? They are just made with super loose fit to improve reliability? How accurate are these guns?
