Thanks. It's an older bullseye gun I picked up on the cheap as the slide was drilled and tapped for a scope base. Great shooter and the ability to mount a dot or small scope will be a plus.

I'll let you know how it turns out...

I have a .460 Rowland kit I took off of a Springfield Operator TRP I'm thinking of moving on. If you think you might be interested, pm me

If you ever change your mind briarhopper let me know.

Anyone else have experience using this round in a 1911 or Glock platform?

I use it in a glock and I am building a blackhawk .460 Rowland right now. It is an efficient killer. Superb accuracy. With my bad eyes and open sights it will shoot 6" groups at 175 yards.

Here's mine on a Springfield Operator TRP with elk grips. I just found a place down the road where I can get ammo.

Outstanding ! There is something very satisfying about handgun hunting and bowhunting. It almost makes rifle hunting seem like grocery shopping.

Very nice Rowlands guys!!

That's awesome accuracy reflex!

I just think it's so cool to have that kind of power in a regular sized semi.

Thanks for the photos. Very nice stuff.

So here's the next question for those who have shot both...which do you prefer, the Glock or 1911 platform?

Tnx for a lot of useful info for us who's considering buying .460 Rowland. I wonder how WFN hardcast bullets would work on game and if gun will cycle flawlessly.
Keep us informed!
