I still have one and love it.
I used to shoot one in competition. Put over 10000 rounds through it. My load had a 180 SWC going at approx 1000 FPS. (and this was back around the mid to late 1980's)
I read a Wiley Clapp article about how the recoil spring guide on his DE shattered. Has this happened in anybody else's experience?

I'd keep in mind that he was doing ANYTHING with a Desert Eagle and reporting on failure. :roll eyes:

That's a pistol, while impressive to behold, is not the best engineered product to come out of Magnum Research/IMI.

Just sayin....

Oh silly me, I was lazy and meant DE as delta elite, not desert eagle, although both are some fine pieces of fightin' iron.

You want to be careful when running ''Hot" rounds through any 1911 10mm style platform, ramp-less barrel resulting in lack of case support.

I was overseas when I had mine.
The only way I could get casings for reloading was to purchase the original Norma loads and shoot them. There is a difference between what most offer today compared to the original Norma.

I was interested in making "Major power factor" for IPSC (at the time it was 175 as a minimum). Shooting a 180 gr at 1000 FPS did that. But there was no reloading info readily available and no internet. So, with chronograph, single stage press, and favorite .45 powder, we went and developed loads. About a year later, Combat Handguns had some info on reloading the 10mm. And, IIRC, my load was listed.

The only problem I had with my Delta was the hammer peening the series-80 of the slide. I had no cracks in the frame, and no problems with the recoil guide.

Disclaimer: This was told to me by a gun store employee that carried a 10mm. I have no first hand experience with that caliber.

I was asking this guy about Glocks in general. He said the only reason he carried one is because he loves the 10mm and Glock is the only manufacturer that makes a gun in that caliber strong enough to stand up to long term use. He said that until they make a 1911 that won't fall apart from repeated use of the 10mm, he will continue to use the Glock, but the day a 1911 comes out that is strong enough, the Glock is history.

Personally, I plead ignorance and apathy. I have a Glock 27. It's a very nice firearm. I have a Sig 1911. It's a very nice firearm. Both of them are capable of throwing large pieces of lead downrange faster than an aggressor can duck and return fire.

If you heard it from a gun store employee then it MUST be true. This guy is obviously an idiot and I'd recommend going to another shop.

You're going to have to be a serious competition shooter for many many years to ever wear out a 10mm 1911. If you're an average joe shooter like me, you'll never wear one out. I have two 10mm 1911s and I shoot them regularly.

I don't need to. He moved to Mississippi.

Anyway, I put in the disclaimer for a reason. Some people consider gun store employees to be ignorant of all things related to shooting. They picture them as salespeople that can carry at work.

Other people want their opinion because they see more guns going in for repair than most of us will ever own. They know what sells, they know what comes back, and they hear the praises and complaints.

Then there are those of us that are capable of independent thought that seek information from all sources and make our decisions based on what we learn. Forums like this are one of those sources of information.

Did I have to share the conversation? No, I didn't. Did I feel that a conversation with a 10mm owner was worth repeating no matter what his occupation? Yes I did, even though I knew I would get some grief over it simply because of his occupation. Thank you for not disappointing me.
