    Does the 10mm have a different frame ramp angle than the other calibers?

    Thinking about fitting a 10mm top to one of my pistols.

    I am aware of the difference between the 45acp and the 9x19 ramp, with the 9mm having a steeper angle, but what does the 10mm ramp look like?

    Well 10mm is just 40 calibre.
    So a 40cal feed ramp should work?

    Dont take my word for it, just giving my 2c.

    10mm is not just a .40 caliber. There's a significant difference in length between the two, therefore the feed ramps will be different.
