Just to up date this thread a bit, 38 Super is VERY doable with the TCM platform. I got a Swenson barrel from Midway; along with a barrel bushing, link and pin. After some filing, polishing and fitting, I have a very reliable 38 Super 1911 A2. Got the Starline 38 Super comp brass .The double-stack magazines feed perfectly, ejector leaves my cases about 4-5ft to my right at about 3 o'clock. Started with some mid range loads to test function and it worked! I also put in a 14 lb Wolff spring and since have shot 200+ rounds of top end loads thru it with minimal problems. Had to do some additional polishing to get Hornady HAP bullets to feed reliably, but any round nose from 115 to 135 grains has fed great from the get-go.
So, again, yes , a 38 super barrel and 38 Super comp brass work.
