I see that this site isn't real active, which surprises me a little 'cause the 10mm is becoming very popular in the circles I hang with up here in Boise. People carrying them for hunting or back packing in our area. I had a chance last year to pick up a 10mm Tanfoglio all steel pistol at a very good price, just to see if I liked the caliber before committing to a more expensive model. Or not.
Well, I'm quite pleased with the results, and with the pistol actually, which I wasn't sure about. Its accurate, relatively easy to handle, and I've never had a pistol that throws brass that far away. LOL! Like, in the next county?
But I'm a 1911 person and I'm kinda out there, wondering which 1911 10mm would be best for regular use. I obviously have gear that will accommodate the 1911 platform, but there are some basics I'm not sure about. Hope you can help?
First of all, what is with this shooting .40 in a 10mm barreled pistol? Is it safe? What will that do to my pistol? 55 years of hand gunning has taught me about multiple calibers in wheel guns, but in a Pistol?
Do most 1911 10mm pistols interchange parts with .45 1911's? Not the barrels, bushing, etc, but the pins, internals, guide rods, etc.?
I'm looking at the SR1911 model after some really good reviews, and I've owned four different models of this gun in .45acp since they first came out. While my normal 1911 carry is a steel Colt Commander, the Delta is also in view, but Colt is doing some strange things lately, so I'm not sure I'd want a new model.
I realize that I've asked a lot, but I hope I get some good intel from people with first hand experience with the 10mm round. Thanks in advance for your help.
