    .41 action express conversion?

    A friend of mine in 1989-90 had a PT92 and Taurus came out with a kit in .41 Action express. He purchased a .41AE conversion kit for his gun. I was a big fan of the .41 Mag and still am. I was wondering if anyone out there has one of these conversion kits. I'd sure like to find one. Anyone have any leads?
    Thanks, Mike

    Its a simple barrel and magazine swap. Any Beretta barrel should work also. I just saw a complete Beretta 98 41ae slide and barrel on gunbroker for $500 but you only need the barrel. Try all of the Beretta/Taurus 92 style barrel makers like Jarvis,Barsto,EFK,ect.

    In addition to a conversion barrel, you will also need some .40 S&W PT100/101 Magazines and a PT100 recoil Spring. Conversions may show up on Gunbroker from time to time.

    The regular PT92/99 Recoil Spring simply will not do!

    Wow - haven't heard anybody talk about the ol' 41AE in a very long time. I guess I thought the ammo was not made anymore.

    Thanks folks. The brass is available from several outlets (that's the only unique .41AE component). Normal .41 Mag bullets, pistol primers and your good to go. Oh, can't forget reloading dies from Lee.... Think I'm going to do this. I have the 92, so get a .22 rimfire kit and build a .41AE kit and 3 guns on one frame. I've got tons of .41 bullets. Wolf will make/have springs to do the job. Need Barrel/one mag/spring. Bet I can do that for under $250.

    Definitely a rare bird. One of the shops here had a box of .41AE ammo on their shelf 2 - 3 years ago and recall being amazed seeing it.

    Seems like most .41 AE loads pretty much duplicate .40 S&W. IMI was the only ammo mfg that loaded hot, and it duplicated the ballistics of the 10 mm. So other than "... because I can" I don't see much point to fooling with it.

    Because a copy is returned for postfix ++ expressions, statements such as (c++)++; won't work as expected.

    I suppose you had to be there. The .40 S&W wasn't. I was into .41 Mag in Wyoming(the smallest caliber allowed for handgun hunting there at the timeit's something I wanted at the time and couldn't afford. So why not, now that I can afford it?....mike

    Seeing as how Taurus used to put out a 41 A.E. (model 91F, 1990 only) try them. You never know what parts are in some back room.

    Can this round safely duplicate a 10mm and can the 92 frame take it?If so I could find myself wanting this.
