10MM Rock




I was just sitting here thinking of what I'd like Santa to bring me for Christmas...

I know. I figure if the idea gets enough support the powers that be may just decide to start producing them. After all there has been an re-insurgence of 10mm end users the last few years. Personally I think it's a wonderful idea with tons of merit. I must be a genius

Been trying to get someone to measure the breechface of a rock island 38 super to see if I could fit a 10mm barrel to one.... some brands use the 10mm/40 sw breechface for their supers since there is only .019 difference in the rims.....

I sell my .45 in a hearteat to get a 10mm. I love the gun caliber but I hate Glocks, HK's and the CZ-75 is way to hard for me to get used to. 1911 is the only auto I like.

DW is in your name And I fell in love with a gun they no longer make was planning on buying it when I got back from deployment and found it discontinued so I bought the CS tactical instead. I love the 1911 after shooting my buddies custom SA it made me want to sell my Ruger .357 which I did to put towards buying my first auto pistol. My CS. Buying the 2011 when I get to CO in Febuary and going to gunsmithing school then.

Anything is possible if enough of us beg for it so get begging already

Guess I don't see the point of begging, it'd be nice but I can see their hesitance. It will not sell as well as 9mm and .45 ACP models, so making them could be a real loss for the company.

That is the wrong attitude.

You guys the idea positive attitudes are infectious. The 10mm isn't a popular round unless your in the right circles just like a .38 super or 9mm x 23 or other about wild cat like rounds in a 1911 but 10mm is the most sought after round I know of in a 1911 and I know pleanty of people who hate the plastic 10mm like Glock, HK, Sig alloy frames and the like it=f they even offer a 10mm? S&W even makes a 10mm so there is demand and it usaully means custom or used high ned custom or Dan Wesson that cost over 2k anyhow. I know to guns that would fly off the shelves in the Caliber a MS and a Longslide Match style gun.

an affordable 10mm, is a big step in making 10mm MORE popular.

Aside from that? Yes please, give mine a rail but I'd buy one even in GI trim.

I know, a terrible attitude from a guy who once pined for Colt Delta Elites and the vunder round of the bottomfeeder world. Just sort of got away from it...I do admit that if they made one I would feel obliged to buy it.

An affordable longslide in 10MM would sell well to guys who like to hunt and just fans of the 10MM. I hope Ivan reconsiders.

I agree but as a hunter I would prefer the commander of MS size in 10mm my self. If it were my only gun in the field then yes a longslide would be great.

Besides the weight factor I'd think a long slide would top a mid size for hunting in every category. Longer sight plane makes it more accurate, longer barrel delivers more velocity. A railed long slide would give you space to mount a laser and the long slide is perfect for scope mounts.

Sign me up for a RIA 10mm of any size. I keep looking at the G20 and just can't make myself buy one... as much as I want a 10mm. Delta Elite is just too much money usually.. and the CZ gets mixed reviews at best. SW made a good one, but I'd WAY rather have a 1911 platform.

As I recall EAA makes a 10mm CZ Clone and CZ makes no 10mm that I am aware of at this time. The 10mm EAA has had problems (never seen them on one) with the frame cracking.

Yes and the extra weight in the slide and barrel would slow unlocking and hitting the frame hard making it more durable. RIA would also have the market to itself with a production longslide 10MM at prices most could afford. Heck, a bull barrel would add more weight slowing unlocking even more, put in a flat firing pin stop, good recoil spring and you might have what the AMT 10MM Longslide was suppose to be.
