    I had in my odd brass assortment a .38 Special case with large primer. It wasn't weathered, somebody must have turned up old stock and shot it. I never saw a large primer .38 or .357 when I started...

    I have a late 1970s Service Model ACE. Handles like a 1911, even has a little recoil. Insufficiently reliable for competition. I would not expect a Colt Conversion to do better.
