Do I want a Remington 10mm Hunter?

Got a friend of a friend wanting to trade me a 10mm Hunter. Super clean and hardly used comes with 4 mags and all original paperwork and box. He don't like the ammo cost and wants my Rock Island Ultra 1911 9mm and some cash. Has not said how much cash but agreed to trade for a weekend to shoot each others gun to check out. Do I want that 10mm Hunter?? Ammo cost does not bother me....

I sure like mine after a couple of very easy tweaks.

Here's my detailed review.

I'd do it. The weight and length of a hunting 1911 in 10mm feels great. My gripe would be they only went 6" not 7" or 8".

The Remington ones are the Para 10mm pistols.

Time will tell. My Para LS Hunter has been just fine.

If I remember right the Para holds one more round than the Remington.

I'm still working on this trade deal, he don't want to part with it but the ammo is costly for it. Since we first discussed this deal I have been collecting 10mm brass at the local range, not much to get but do have some rounds and can reload using my 40cal bullets. I'm afraid he's going to want way too much boot cash with my RIA 1911 but we will see...

That isn't a difference in the gun. It is in the mags that are included with the gun.
The mags that come with the Remington do indeed hold one less since they are completely flush-mount mags (unlike the ones that were included with the Para Hunter).
However, the Wilson Combat mags that I prefer to use remedy that situation.

I too am considering getting 1.

Not real confidant with Remington's Warranty and my purchase of a Rem-Lin a few yrs ago.

Read my in-depth review in the thread: Initial Review Of Remington Hunter 10mm.
You will need to tweak it a little bit but it does make a nice gun.
