10mm build vs. .45




Heard something about having to do extra or special work when building a 10mm as opposed to a standard .45 caliber. Is this true?

No one can truly convince me that the 10mm/.40S&W is 'as reliable' as the .45 ACP in 1911 format....; I would only consider a .40 were I playing with an STI USPSA Limited gun where the 17-19+1 rounds are 'needed'. (The 10 mm in full/original loadings is simply more muzzle flip to achieve higher energy numbers, which are not really 'needed')

For defensive use, the .45 ACP is simply a 'given', IMO......

[QUOTE=MSgt Dotson;3913442]No one can truly convince me that the 10mm/.40S&W is 'as reliable' as the .45 ACP in 1911 format....;

If the pistol is built properly a 40 S&W will run equally as well as a 45acp in a 1911 platform. I haven't built a 10mm so I can't speak to that caliber. It all comes down to personal choice and if you want a 40 in a 1911 there is no reason not to have one built.

Just my .02

I agree kc, but I read somewhere that the build is a little different than building .45's .Maybe beefing up certain areas? Can't remember where I saw it.

Other than the difference in the parts, IE slide & barrel, I don't know of any difference. Again if this is for the 10mm I have no knowledge. But the 40's I've built made sure you have the correct breech face and barrel and you're good to go.

I have a colt delta elite in 10mm. It has a faster slide cycle due to the sharp recoil of the 10mm cartridge. This equals not as much vertical muzzle flip. Great gun in a great caliber.
