I don't know. I would be a little leery of converting an old .45 1911 to .460 Roland. There is a heack of a lot of pressure difference between the two cartridges, and I would be wondering if a gun designed to handle the pressure of a .45 round could take that pressure increase.
Some people think I'm paranoid because I have so many guns. With all my guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Design is fine.

I would not use this in a pre-1921 1911 that may not have a full heat treat.  But I doubt many people would put a 460 Rowland upper on a frame that old.

Some of the early cast frames my be suspect too, but any modern 1911 frame is plenty strong.

BEEMER!

Clark has a list of pistols that are strong enough and a list of ones that will not work.

When I ordered mine, they question you pretty thoroughly on what gun you are using as the base.
