For Your 1911 Long Slide  SEE the V2 RECOIL DAMPER

If you’ve been disappointed by other recoil systems we have a solution for you.

If you’re ready to upgrade your handgun to a truly superior recoil system that will not break or fail, the 460 ROWLAND® V2 RECOIL DAMPER is the upgrade for you. This device really works.

The .460 Rowland® V2 Recoil Damper

The 460 Rowland V2 Recoil Damper is a precision-machined “micro-motor” designed to manage slide speed and recoil. It consists of a piston and cylinder coupled with our 30-50,000 cycle reaction spring. It actively slows the slide, regardless of force, in the last inch and a half of travel, working much like the air brakes on a semi truck.

With that force absorbed, the reaction spring now has only to return the slide. This enables you to use whatever tension you like that will return it to battery: Higher for a rugged backwoods environment, very light for competition shooting…or anything in-between.

This was John Browning’s original intent for the spring. It is now realized again with today’s more powerful rounds. And the V2 Recoil Damper will work with any caliber.

The V2 REcoil Damper includes a Standard Reaction Spring and a set of six SS Shims.

Different Reaction Spring tensions and additional Shims, including more elegant Brass Shims, are available to suit your needs.

And it holsters just as well as any 5″ 1911…no specially-made or open-ended holster needed!

Our Uncompensated and Uncompromising .460 Rowland® Long-Slide Hunter shoots with less felt recoil, faster target re-acquisition, higher muzzle-velocity and greater knock-down power than any other handgun on the market today.

Better performance…the same slim lines…and slightly shorter overall length than our Standard 5″ Gov’t Compensated Conversion…you literally get it all!

“Shoots Like a Dream, Hits Like a Sledge-Hammer !”

NOTE: Delivery times will vary depending upon the availability of the Kimber 1911 platform.

    I love my long slide hunter had it to the range 3 times another shooter came over and asked what I was shooting cause it was louder then his shotgun, let guy that works at the range, he has one he built up with a Rowland kit and when I showed him the v2 in it he got on the phone and ordered one.for years I have shot and reload 44mag but at 75yrs young, this does at the other end what the 44mag does but not in your hand, I have a kimber l/w and the Rowland 230 grd does not kick as hard as the lite weight 45cal. Yes this is a great ???????? ???? ???? thing!!! My grandson ???? ❤️ is loving it too, and my youngest son, and even my wife ❤️ all are going shooting!!! Would I do it again!!! Yep wish I got one sooner, everyone should have one!!! And yes you can shooting 45apc in it as well as .460Rowlan!!!
