Bought my first 1911 about 6 years ago and fell in love. Carry it (open) all the time "out on the place" but wanted a bit more power (and distance) for "eventualities" and after researching a while, decided that the 10mm was the best compromise between portability and power.

 

Wanted a longslide and as you know there are not too many out there--and some are way more than I want to pay for an everyday carry. So I had a conversation with a local gunshop and talked to someone who knows the Owner of Armscor and he highly recommended the Pro series.

 

I wanted to see the HC model in person, as I liked the idea of more ammo--but the closest dealer is about 3 hours away and I decided not to order one without holding it and seeing how it felt. 

 

Decided on this one. Don't yet have it in hand, but wondering whatcha think.

That is one itch I thankfully do not have to scratch. Although I do shoot a similar round. Just a bit more powerful... Herter's 401 PowerMag.

 

I keep hearing good things about the Armscorp firearms. (Rock Island and other brands they build) That ought to be a beast.

 

Also, Welcome to The Armory. Never will you find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Otherwise a great bunch of folks! :segrin:

Welcome, Rabbi.  Hope you decide to stick-around the forum.  I have several 10mm's, and have heard nothing but good things regarding Rock Island Armory pistols.  I'm currently, looking at the SIG Hunter for my next purchase.

I like the Sig Hunter but at the moment I have no more body parts I can sell.

I plan to stick around--though I am too busy to hang out all the time. Unfortunately I have too many full-time-jobs (2@24/7) and too many hobbies. I KNOW I will have questions along the way. Right now I just want to get the thing here and range-tested/sighted in.

A weather induced tragedy......... There has to be something worse that waiting for a new 10mm, but honestly can not think of anything, it will be worth the wait.

I have yet to jump into the 10mm world but I did notice that Kimber has a new offering.

Funny thing, my son called this morning and told me he has scheduled a mountain lion hunt for me next fall. I really don't have a pistol or revolver suitable for that event. So, looks like I need another 1911! I have not been too subtle already, and the RIA long slide 10mm has a big target on it! A 6" barrel, target sights and a battery that I know like the back of my hand looks like a recipe for success! The RIA 10 is a wonderful option, as my experience with that company is nothing short of great! Don't think twice if young can find a RIA long slide! You will be well pleased!

Dang, that's still one of the best looking 10mm I've seen. Of course those grips are the cat's azz.

Welp--it showed up today and all is good. Looks and feels nice. I DO think that the bottom the the back strap is going to be "a handful" given the recoil of 10mm and the sharpness of the checkering. 

 

One issue--disassembly. The manual and video shows using a paper clip to keep recoil spring compressed for removing guide rod. NO HOLE in my guide rod. BUT it has a screw slot/screw in the front end of the guide rod. Armscor tech person said that has to be unscrewed. She didn't say if that was under tension or compressed?!?!?!

 

Inquiring minds and all that.

For an outdoor "around the house and woods" long slide, I would look into the Glock G40 10mm long slide. I recently added one to my large stable of 10mm thoroughbreds and although not as pretty as its stablemates, its capacity to weight ratio certainly has its merits.

You can never go wrong with a 1911 of any type and size. I have a few dozen, including Colt, Dan Wesson (my favorite), Springfield, Kimber, etc. All are in 10mm of course. I don't own any 9mm's, .40's, or even .45's. The 10mm does everything those can do except better. The only exception to that is for a suppressed round, I would go with the .45 since they are usually naturally subsonic to start with and by the time you slow down the 10mm to subsonic, you've lost most of its benefits..

 

I too have wanted a CCO for years. I have been trying to get one member here to sell me his Dan Wesson CCO 10mm but no luck. I may look into a Fusion as Bob Serva has already said he can make it the way I wanted it to be done.

IF you decide to go with a Fusion please give us a range report and your overall impression. I have been thinking about having a Fusion 1911 built. For a custom/production pistol it would be hard to beat my Dan Wesson Valor. I do not own any 10mm but I'm very curious.
