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.
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.
Damn, over $1600 for a Razorback? LE or not that's crazy.
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.
Please fact check before posting. This is how Internet rumors are started and perpetuated.
Not correct. Anything else you need debunked?
