Although not easy to find nowadays, pick up a spare barrel so your covered w/ both.
That's what I did, because my older 7" M41 was not factory D&T'd.

....... OTOH, if you have a 1911, you could opt for a Marvel Unit One conversion kit. No FFL required.
I tripped over a Fred Kart .22 conversion mounted on a Colt 1911...it shoots like a little laser.

On topic, my M41 does outshoot my Ruger MIII Target model.

No disagreement on the High Standards.
