Longslide 10mm functions




I see all these awesome longslide 10mm's, and I wonder, does it help with the issue of slide velocities battering the frames? Or are they only for improved sight radius and velocity/looks?

I would think the extra weight of the slide would slow down unlocking and speed or at least that is what I've always heard.

Yes it does. It was used by Peter Sthal, when the 10MM's first came out to help in this area as well as S&W on the 1006 and their line of 10"s.

Thank you, I'm debating government or long slide. Carry I will, as well as hunting, so probably government. Is the general consensus to put a 22# spring and EGW firing pin stop in to tame the battering on a 5"er?

If you set them up correctly you won't have any battering... We build the10mm in CCO's, commanders, 5 inch and 6 inch.... I like the 6 in the 10mm, not really for any special mechanical advantages, even though the longer sight radius is nice, but the balance and control is real nice in the 6 inch.

Obviously the velocity will be greater. I wish I could hold one to feel the greatness.
