Just stumbled across this. A 1911 in 9mm/.22 TCM. Looks like a .40 S&W necked down to .22. I guess why would be a good question, but damn if it doesn't look like fun!

(Imagine the ammo will be pricey, though.)

Very accurate, hotter than the FN5.7. Shot one a few weeks back. Lotta muzzle-blast but, also a lotta fun! Also comes with a 9mm barrel for $539.00.

Haven't seen the cartridge, but if it is a .40 necked down I bet brass forming is a b*@#%&

more like if it were a 9mm

Hell, you're probably right, Charlie. Since it comes with a 9mm barrel, that would only make sense.

Something I lack at times! :oops:

It sure LOOKS like fun, Sarge. And if it's an honest 40 grain bullet at 2000+ fps...ouch! :D

You can't make the 22TCM from 9mm. The TCM has the same rim diameter (.378") as a .223 case. The 9mm rim is .394". The 9mm case is also only 19mm long and the TCM case is 26mm long.
