    Was there ever a 10mm pistol produced that had a paddle or heel mag release?

    My thoughts are possibly german made but I don't think the 10 is popular there.

    Thanks

    I know SIG made a 38 Super that way but don't think a 10mm. Maybe a 40?

    What is the context of the question? May help us figure it out more.

    I think heel releases faded in popularity just before 10mm became popular.

    The Browning BDA was made by SIG (back in the late '70s/early '80s as I recall), and had a heel mag release but only came in 9mm., .38 Super, and .45 ACP. I had one in .45 ACP and it was as accurate as a Colt Gold Cup I had at the time. Should have bought the other two as they sat on dealer's shelves for a very long time!

    Agree we need to know why. Is there one? Want to see it!

    I can just barely imaging a SIG (BDA as sold in the US) with a new barrel and some extractor fussing maybe, appearing to be a 10mm factory gun. There was a small period where it was popular as a caliber but there were not many Delta Elites, the Smiths were rare due to FBI sales (and QA issues) and so on, and no one could find a BREN TEN for love or money, so IIRC there were conversion barrels and custom work on others. Seen a handful of other Colts with aftermarket 10 mm barrels since then on sale shelves, etc.

    The reason is personal preference. And just wondering if one was ever made.
