I have a hankering, for grins and giggles, to have an M1911 chambered for 38 AMU. My plan would be to re-barrel a current production Colt Gold Cup. For those "not in the the know", the 38 AMU, which stands for 38 Army Marksman Unit, is a rimless 38 Special cartridge for shooting wadcutters in bullseye completion. Timeframe was around 1960-1970 or so. Does anyone know of a shop that would make a 38 AMU barrel for an M1911? I know that Colt barrels chambered in 38 AMU come up for sale on the various gun sales sites. I'd rather a new barrel but a used barrel maybe my only option. I have a 38 AMU barrel and bushing that came with a mid 1950 vintage 38 Super M1911 I bought in the 1980's but the barrel has been "bubba'd" to chamber 38 Super. I converted the pistol back to 38 Super with a new 38 Super barrel. It is not like I need another project but it should be interesting and I like working with M1911 pistols. Thanks for your help and suggestions. FYI, I already have converted a Gold Cup from 45 ACP to 38/45 Clerke. Another cartridge developed for bullseye competition to allow the use of the same frame and slide for bullseye competition around 1960.
