I have heard rumors of a 1911 conversion kit. Does anyone here know anything more about it? Also are there kits out there for other pistols?

i think the OAL of the 7.62x25 is too long for most frames. not sure what it would work in.

If I am not mistaken, the only thing you need to convert a 1911 to 7.62x25 would be a new grip frame, a new slide, a new mag, and of course, a new barrel.

In other words it's not likely that there are kits due to the length of the 7.62x25 round.

There is a long thread about it on another board.
Not a kit, this is a shop built conversion with 1911 barrel lined to .30 and chambered 7.62x25.
The converter says he can get a few factory rounds in a .38 Super magazine at a slant but that if he wants full capacity, he deep seats and recrimps the bullet. This seems not to boost chamber pressure in the bottleneck cartridge as much as it would in a straight case.

There is also mention of a Glock set up in the caliber but details are lacking. There is a video of a Glock conversion being shot.

Yeah that sounds like the one I heard about.
What about magazines for the 9x25 dillon, that should feed similarly since its a bottleneck also.

I thought the TT-33 WAS the 7.62x25 1911 conversion.

Magazines for 9x25 Dillon = magazines for 10mm = same length as for .45 and .38 Super. No cure for 9x25.

OAL of 7.62x25mm = 34.0mm
OAL of .38Super = 32.5mm
OAL of 10x25mm Auto = 32.0mm
OAL of .45ACP = 32.0mm
OAL of 9x25mm Dillon = 31.8mm

@quiet
Thanks for the numbers on those cartridges.
So it seems we're SOL for existing frames and magazines.
@jeffmack
The TT33 has no cocked and locked capability, so no it is not anywhere close to a 1911.
