But they have 5" barrels, and machine shops. Have one cut and crowned.

I believe the answer to your question is no. At least I do not remember any of the major 1911 manufacturers making one. I want to remember that Terry Tussey may have made a custom Officers in 10mm.

The smallest 10mm pistols I know of currently are the Dan Wesson Commander size pistol with the Bobtail frame and the small Glock. Frankly, considering the power in a 10mm round, in a small frame pistol the small Glock seems like the best idea to me. I do not think I would want a barrel shorter than 4.00 inches

Finally, check the Kimber website as they have made the Pro Carry in other calibers including 10mm, and may still offer the Ultra Carry in 40 S&W, which would then just be a barrel and magazine change.

Don williams of the Actions Works did one a few years back for a customer.
It went through recoil springs in fairly short order. Like 200 rounds.
It's pretty much 10 lbs of you know what in a 5 lb bag.

Probably easier to buy one in .40S&W and just have it reamed to 10mm.

but Glock makes two compact model 29s in 10mm - the 29 and the 29 Short Frame. I have the 29 it is a great shooter.
