Same with any pistol that sports the trigger thingie. More ND ocurrs with Glocks than the next three Brands combined.

Don't blame the gun, blame the tool that is carrying it. I carry a glock 20 with one in the chamber all day, every day and I have never had a ND.

EAA did have issues with Slides cracking on the 10 mm. I'd be willing to bet that it in part because of their decision to put 14 lb springs in them. I run a 18 lb spring in my .45. From what I've seen, the 10 mm should probably run a 20 or 22 lb spring.
Frame cracking did occur, though it's comparatively rare.
Pretty good info:

A loaded 10mm steel framed is a lot of weight to lug around.

Yo stud. I haven't called you any names, but that can be rectified.

The trigger disconnect is the most unsafe mechanical device installed on any firearm. Numerous folk have been shot by Glock just from (improperly) handling their pistols. Even while removing it from their holsters.

As far as not having an ND with your Glock, that day may just be in your future. It's only a matter of time.

I just got a e-mail from guns americas coverage of the shot show. Rock island arms is building a 10mm in a 1911 version. I surfed the net couldnt find any imformation on them so they are not released yet.Might be a affordable option to look into.They are definately not a colt but have a pretty good reputation and are way more affordable.

Cheaper than Dirt had them, exclusively I believe. I might be interested in one once another vender or three has access to them. I'll go a long way out of my way to avoid CTD from now on.

Yes, the RIA 10mm guns have been out since Thanksgiving. There are a number of reviews on the dedicated 1911 forums. So far they've been pretty mediocre and mixed reviews. Not enough to convince me to take the gamble. I'd recommend looking for one that already has the kinks worked out.

And that's because there are more Glocks being carried than the next three brands combined.

I have the Kimber Eclipse in 10mm (also have a Colt DE). It's a great shooter and I've had no problems with it at all.

You can even find cheap(er) 10mm ammo now while 9mm, .40, and .45 are all out of stock.

"Cheaper" = ~US$200 / 500 rnds PPU 180gr SJHP.
