    Actually Colt, Kimber, Nighthawk, Wilson, STI, and Fusion all have 10mm offerings.

    i was wondering if you were talking about the high end custom houses.

    so, for production 1911's, colt, kimber, and STI are the only ones? (i've never seen a 10mm STI, and i think kimber only offers them through their custom shop)

    That's about it, Dan Wesson only recently ceased production of their 10mm Razorbacks, so there's still a ton of those out there. STI offers the "perfect 10", I'm not sure what else, and Kimber's "custom shop" isn't really a custom shop. ;) They've got their stainless target models, and I've seen a couple Eclispe 10mms as well, they might have a few other models too.

    I put a 21# spring and a shock buff in my Kimber Stainless Target II immediately after purchase because I knew the old Norma loads were the lightest ammo I was gonna put through it. Don't have an exact round count, but the gun looks just as it did the day I bought it, save the small scuff on the frame next to the MSH where I dropped it on a concrete floor once.

    My Witnesses are fine, too.

    Apocalypse: You inferred that a DE can't go a few thousand full power rounds. My own gun did and there is no appreciable wear on the rails or broken parts. That's a fact where I come from.

    Will a G20 "FAR" outlast a 1911 in 10mm? Give me a few years and I will be back with an answer to that too ;) I'm not knocking the Glock or polymer guns at all, I own many and I know Glocks are durable - its one of their many strengths. They aren't perfect though and for me a 1911 in 10mm is a better choice. But FACT is the 1911 is a worthy platform for the 10mm.

    Dan Wesson still makes them btw, just not in the catalog.

    The Dan Wesson's jumped up in price for this year big time. Supposedly the quality jumped up as well, many owners claim the 2011 Valor is on par with the Les Baers. But in the case of this gun that finish raises the price over SS a few hundred I think, just like the black Valors. You're right though, it aint cheap, one more reason the DE is a good buy.

    TXHORNS,

    You hit the nail on the head. Many posters, on many forums, The High Road included, come here with possibly their first firearm, proud as a young boy with their new puppy, and like children can be, other posters do everything they can to tear down that persons moment of joy.

    I have had it done to me, and have proven every one of them wrong and will continue to do so.

    I love my Delta Elite, Delta Gold Cup and am learning to like my Glock 20. Will it ever replace my 1911's....absolutely not. I have been shooting and loving them in many calibers for over 30 years. There is nothing that fits my hand better and naturally points like the 1911. Accuracy of all that I have had was exceptional....except one and a little tweaking brought that one to my requirements. They have all be reliable to a fault. So I hope the ohio58 enjoys his gun for many thousand rounds to come.

    It's cliche, but...they don't make em like that anymore. You have a pistol with VALUE that will only be produced one at a time by artisans at a premium $$$, triple what you paid. Congrats!!

    I just paid $997 OTD of my LGS. Kimber does indeed make a 10mm Eclipse. No custom shop work needed.

    Please fact check before posting. This is how Internet rumors are started and perpetuated.

    I'm not aware of any facts that state a Glock 10MM is more durable than my DW Pointman 7 10MM. If anyone has such FACTS then type it for all to see.

    Tangfolio makes 10mms in poly and steel versions and yes they had problems at first with slide the new ones are built to handle the 10mm.

    What "internet rumor" are you de-bunking today? The OP didn't buy your Kimber, so what are you getting at?

    How about Post #29 saying Kimber 10mm are only available through their custom shop.

    Not correct. Anything else you need debunked?
