    I remember a kit to convert the Spanish "Destroyer" carbines to .45 ACP. Probably easier to find a completed one than a kit nowadays.

    I can't remember the name but a company that sold .45 barrels and kits went out of business 1 or 2 years ago. I was going to buy a .45 mag barrel from them and went to their website and found that they no longer exisisted.

    The company was Rhineland arms. Another company was gearing up to make these, but I cant remember the name.

    were the "destroyer" mausers better in some way and how exactly was that model different from any other model? is there any way to find out or does anyone know who is making that kit now? thanks!

    The destoyer guns are no better, and infact could be of less quality. The Spanish mausers have a histroy track record for softer metal than other makes of mausers.
