    I was just curious what options the "V10" designates. I just read on a person's page that "V10" was for the 10 hole ports in the barrel. Is this correct?

    What brought this question on was I knew there was a V10 UC, we had one, but I just saw a V10 Compact :eek: What's that? I want one. :D

    And I just realized the difference in the Champion and the Compact models was the sixe of the grip...Champ has fullsize, Compact has the Compact grip. Interesting....

    I have the ultra compact v10. Yes, it has the 10 ports on the barrel and it is a great shooter. It is a lot of fun when the wind is not blowing towards your face :)

    Yes it's the ports which are cut at an angle. If you stuck a toothpick in each one, you would have 10 picks in a V shape on top of the barrel.
    I used to have the V10 UC. I learned a lot about working on guns with that pistol since SA couldn't seem to make it work right. I'm glad I still don't have it.

    I have one and love it. I just replaced all the springs with a set from Wolffs. Shoots great and I carry it all the time.

    Kinda limits your choices when holster shopping, though :neener:
