Eh? How'd you do that?
9mm magazine slides right into the jhp 45 mag with a spacer on bottom to get the 9mm mag at the right height . Barrel is from an Uzzi. I machined jhp barrel and breach block combo to accept the 9mm barrel. Pinned and loctited so its solid. Machined slide to lighten it so 9mm would cycle it weight wise and put a softer recoil spring in. Did this 10+ years ago but thats what I remember doing. I can convert it back into a stock jhp 45 as I have all the stock parts off original gun. I bought a 2nd slide and barrel and misc jhp parts off gun broker from tare parts guns.
I just picked up a cheap CF380 I may try and convert to a 22 long. when time permits.

Remake a C9 to a 45acp, is it possible.I suppose the mag and opening up the slide for barrel would two hurdles to overcome.
Harley, as with anything the safety factor comes into play. 45 mag won't fit into a C9 with out removing material from plastic frame and that will make it less strong. I've always gone from a bigger caliber to a smaller caliber figuring when modifying these that it would remain safe to fire and play around with.
I'm a self-annoyed machinist by trade so have all the machine tools to modify them and it's usually when things are slow and I'm bored that these get attention "just because I can" . Probably makes the hair stand up on some purest but for what they cost they are a fun project to me to experiment. Always stay safe and keep it fun.

My Shiznit, "Oh Sheet" canon. Jhp 45 turned into 9mm . Been posted before , but for posteriors sake ,Ill post again for the younguns.
This is probably the best HP "Open Class Modified" I've ever seen.
I'm thinking we should have a show & tell yearly competition thread.
Divided into "Grips", "Paint" and "Open Class" :bowdown:

That is an AWESOME IDEA!

We need to have a contest, maybe get HP to sponsor some prizes?
Old Timers of HPFF could be the judges, and we could have voting set up with
Steem Coins voting where your magnitude of vote is determined by the amount
of Steem COins you "vote" with? :D

OK< maybe not the last part :rotfl:
