Ruger 10mm 1911?

Friend calls this morning says im interested in this 1911 that is 10mm.
He says its a Ruger. I politely tell him Ruger does not make a 10mm
1911.
He says he is sure the ad said Ruger 10mm. I ask where did you see this at?
Says Gunbroker.
I check and sure enough a Ruger 10mm WOW!
No fanfare or tactical video. Just a quiet release. Not a Ruger fanboy just
suprised that a firearm manufacture introduces a new model so quietly.

Mine should be at my FFL on Monday!

Unfortunately, because of the 5 business day reporting nonsense I won't be able to pick up up until Wednesday.

does anyone know if they can handle full power loads, or if they're handicapped like the delta elite?

It has a ramped barrel so that is a good sign.

I have never had a problem shooting hot loads with by Colt Delta, maybe your thinking of a Kimber.

As an FYI for me. Does the 10mm carry any advantage over the 45acp? If just more rare and expensive ammo?

On my bucket list! Street price about 60% of Colt Delta Elite, and has adjustable sights to boot! Also if it needs repaired it will be a very short turn around time. Colt kept a poster on another forum's .45 for 6 months to replace firing pin stop, firing pin, firing pin spring and take his collet bushing out and replace it with a solid bushing, even though this was causing no issues. I could do the above in about 6 minutes for a prefit bushing and maybe 30 minutes if I had to fit the bushing.

I got my Delta Elite in either 1988 or 89. I have put about 20,000 full power rounds through it with no problem.
I used it at Gunsite shooting 155gr fmj @ 1400 fps (handloads) to earn an Expert certificate in the 499 course. Fired over 1000 rounds in 5 and 1/2 days.

Delta Elites are somewhat notorious for cracked frames from full power loads. They don't use a ramped and fully supported chamber. Many have not had problems and hopefully you never will, but there's plenty of accounts of it. As I recall it's more common in the older DE's. I believe Colt did attempt to improve things in recent designs but until they supply a supported chamber it can never be as strong as others.

It offers a wide range of loads and ballistics, from a weak .40 S&W to approaching .41 Magnum. Exceeds .357 Magnum ballistics in a semi-auto. If you're going to carry an auto in bear country, or if you intend to hunt large game with an auto pistol, it's great. For general carry and self-defense, I'd tend to favor the .45 ACP.

I have a Delta Elite in Bright Stainless. I think I will look into getting a Ruger 10mm. I was not a Ruger guy but I can appreciate the features Ruger has incorporated into their SR 1911's. I have 3 SR 1911's with sequential serial numbers. I only fired one of them. I also have a Glock 20, but this is a 1911 forum. Very nice looking gun.

I have had several Delta's and they are fine weapons but don't do well with factory hotter 10mm loads. Mine would always bulge the cases at the rear. I was told by Colt to shot less powerful ammo. They did not like Buffalo Bore or Double Tap at all. They said the hottest load they recommended was Winchester ST which is pretty warm and I liked it. I am not sure they still make it. Tried a Kimber Target II in 10mm and a Glock 20 which seemed to handle the hotter factory ammo better. No bulges with the Kimber and slight bulged cases with the Glock. Due to ammo cost I sold my 10mms. I do thing it is a great round and may get another one.

The very early Delta's had cracking problems so Colt corrected the problem. They are good to go.

I have been wanting a 10mm for a while now. I was set on Rock Island but now I am going to wait and see what people think of the Ruger 10mm.

I like the looks of the Ruger 10mm.
I wish Ruger didn't feel the need to put the permanent reminder to read the damned manual on their guns. But I love 10mm and that is a sharp pistol.

I also thought the bull barrel interesting on this pistol, but still want one.

There is definitely another 1911 in my future now.
Always wanted a 10 and I think this is THE one

The area where the frames were cracking was from the slide stop pin hole up tp the top of the frame rails. Colt "fixed" that problem by just removing that steel. If it's not there it can't crack. It's not that unusual for a 1911 frame to crack in that area every once in awhile but it was happening with enough regularity on the DE's that Colt took that remedial action. That area of the frame is under alternating cycles of tension and compression as the frame flexes during the firing sequence. The fact that it was cracking often in the DE's tells me that the 10mm was exceeding the design envelope for that platform. The barrel can contain the 37,000 PSI pressures no problem but the forces exerted on the frame seem to be a bit much.
