    I had a Glock 20, but I traded it for a Glock 29. I also had a Witness, but I was less than impressed with it, so I traded it as well. Is there a good 10mm out there anywhere? The 20 and Witness were too fat for my hand. I am hoping someone makes a good 10mm in the future that I can afford.

    If the problem is fat grips, a single-stack 10mm like a S&W 10xx series or Dan Wesson Razorback might be what you are looking for.

    The Razorback is very nice and accurate. If you want to sping some cash Les Baer will make you one up. If you want more original look for an old colt Delta or the like.

    Frankly I never had a problem with the G20 or my Witness, but that is just me. I do like my Razorback and my Baer 10mm's better though.

    S&W 10mms are narrower, single-stack pistols. You can basically pick a factory grip to fit your hand: one with a staight-back, an arch, or an arched one with a "palm-swell."

    Hogue also makes a soft rubber arched grip that fits certain 10mm models, like that 1006, 1066 & 1086. Some Smith 10mm owners prefer the Hogue grips to the factory offerings.

    And, BTW, the S&W 10mms are great pistols.

    Razorback.
    I'd try 10xx pistols, but I never see them for sale.

    My 1076 was suprisingly reliable. Not what i had come to expect from a
    S&W semi-auto. The gun was quite heavy, but also very accurate.


    I just prefer the CZ design to any other pistol. The 10MM Witness is
    a great gun if your hands are big enough.

    Razorback,

    Take a look at the Colt Delta Elite 10mm.
    GunsAmerica has several listed for around $800.

    Delta Gold Cup Elites are more expensive.

    Here's another recommendation for the 1076. Mne was ultra reliable & an absolute tack driver.

    I might have to pick one up, in a month or two. Right now I've just about exhausted my gun budget.

    Smith 10XX models. Relatively inexpensive, reliable, accurate, built like tanks.

    Dan Wesson Razorback: forged frame and slide, Series 70 ( :) ), 1911 aesthetics and ergonomics, match accuracy.

    Colt Delta Elite: Classic! All 1911.

    IMHO. if you were not impressed with the very best (G29), then you're in a bad way!! EVERYTHING else is inferior!!!

    Yes, I've been sucked back in...BIG TIME!!! :D

    You can convert just about any .40 S&W 1911 into a 10mm.

    Have a smith rechamber the barrel, get a heavier spring (22# seems to be the most common), and if you wanna go all the way use the EGW firing pin stop to help with the timing.

    Do a search on the gunsmithing page at www.1911forum.com/forums/ . This is a pretty popular project.

    :)
