    Why would anyone think 10 mm would be nearly as powerful as 44 Magnum?:rofl:

    If you're looking for recoil that hurt you you probably want a lightweight revolver with wooden grips in 454 Casull.

    I have a Colt Delta Elite 5" 1911 in 10mm and a SAI TRP in 10mm. They are both great and I carry one of them often instead of a 1911 in .45ACP. I find them very controllable and a comfort when I'm in the woods or fishing.

    I will say that 22 years ago I was fishing for salmon swimming upstream to spawn and die in Talkeetna, AK when a big AK Brown Bear walked out of the woods not 50 feet from me, walked to the river, swiped a big salmon, looked at me as if to say, "Hey, Dipstick, this is how you fish!", looked at me again for a bit and, thankfully, walked back into the woods. Had I had my 10mm with me I would have used it on myself if he had charged me.

    As Dirty Harry said in "Sudden Impact", "A man's got to know his limits..." and I know mine.

    Back about the year 2000 a couple of other guys and I coerced Bob Serva, the then owner of Dan Wesson to bring out a 10mm in 1911 configuration.. He came up with the Razorback. I got one of the very first ones.. I have carried it off and on for 20 years.
    I liked it well enough that I convinced Bob to build me a Razorback CCO. As far as I know, it's the only one in existence. RZbadge.jpg rzcco.jpg
    First thing I did with each was to install am EGW oversized firing pin stop.. This slows the slide considerably during recoil.
    I reload 10 mms to velocities that start considerably faster than the hottest factory loads Paul Harrel fired in that video.

    I carried a 41 mag as a duty sidearm for 13 years.. 10mm is no match for 41s, but its one heck of a cartridge..I have shot injured wild game and livestock with the 10 mms and the results are impressive. 10s are flat shooting hard hitting rounds. I hit a coyote at 80 yards and knocked him flat.

    I guess what all of this novel is telling you is that current 10 factory ammo is nothing like it was when it first came out and if you want to get the true benefit of 10 mm, you've got to load your own.

    Worst I've found from a readily available factory gun is my 329 pd in 44 mag with the factory ahrends grips. I have all the big bores including the 460 and 500 x-frames but that 20 something oz 44 is bad news.

    I shot a couple hundred fairly hot (200 gr around 1200 fps) 10mm today through a Glock and a Smith. The recoil is quite mild compared to any magnum I've fired. Stiffer than a 40 or 45 but not bad at all.

    Both my Sig P220's in 10mm are great shooters, and have , for lack of a better word, perfect fit and finish.

    My customer service experience with Sig last year was great.

    I originally had a Glock 20 and I really had no problems with it, it is a decent pistol and probably the only Glock I would ever consider buying. I sold it and bought the SIG220. I do not own it any longer either, but it was a much better shooter; smoother, less recoil and more accurate. By the way I have some extra mags for it if anyone is interested.

    Im very interested in seeing pics of the gun before and after and specifically what Glock did for you and at what cost to you.

    The frame was damaged beyond repair. Slide stop and takedown lever broken, RSA missing.

    Glock pretty much replaced everything. Only original parts left are slide and barrel. All internals on slide were replaced. I think it was easier/cheaper for them to just chunk the original frame, than to salvage anything.

    Cost was shipping to them, $100+tax. That $108 got me a new gun basically and they covered return shipping.

    OT...sorry and my last post..

    This is in line with everything I’ve ever heard about Glock customer service and warranty repairs.

    Battlefield Las Vegas, a high volume theme based rental range, sends their Glocks with 30K-50K or more rounds, that have been treated like crap, in for all manner of cracked slides and frames and Glock just repairs/replaces all parts and sends them back, no charge.

    Gotta appreciate that level of support!

    I have no problem with the charge. It wasn't a warranty item. They were not at fault. I am satisfied with the outcome. Before and after.
