How many of you have a 1911 with two sets of barrels in different calibers?

I've seen a few posts on other forums but just wonder how many dual-caliber pistols are out there. I'm giving the idea some serious thought. Don't know why because I already have 1911s in three different calibers - 9mm, .38 Super, and .45 ACP.

How is the 9x23 to shoot compared to the other two?
A little more recoil than the Super, louder, flatter shooting, but very manageable. You can definitely tell the difference between them, the factory 9x23 ammo is pretty much the equivalent of a 125gr .357mag.
Great looking combo. Who did the work?
Robin Dietrich of Dietrich Gunsmithy in Otis, ME built that gun for me 4 or 5 years ago.
