Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270

    I have a photo in a book of one converted to a hi-cap full auto in the 1930's by gangsters, bit I've not seen anything like that before.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    He also had no issues with an arched mainspring housing.

    Is that adapted to full-auto fire?
    I'm just here for snark.

    :usa: very impressive guy, didn't know about the 1911's.
    Looks very similar to a conversion done by a Texan named Lehman in the '30's, I think that's what you are thinking of Early, iirc he was prosecuted post NFA for illegally supplying them to Dillinger and others.
