Default 10mm choices

I'm curious to know what folks would recommend for a 10mm suitable for very high pressure rounds (think Buffalo Bore's hottest loads). Glocks need not apply.

You had me worried there for a second.

There are some 10mm's on the 1911 platform.
Colt's Delta Elite may handle it with stiffer springs, but the DE I had took too much peening in the firing pin block area on the slide.
Fusion Firearms 10mm (with the 6 in barrel) could be the best one.
Then the CZ-75 platform from EAA could do it too.

I wonder, a GP-100 in 10mm, would that be a tank or what?


I have no first-hand experience with a GP-100 in any caliber other than the .357mag/.38special.

I would approach the "CZ like" (they are derivative, but no parts interchange) Witness pistols with caution, as they had a history of slide cracking, particularly with the 10 mm (Google it.) Especially when accounting for your stated plan of top of the pressure range ammo. I really like my Witness Elite Match (.45), but in the cold light of day, one must acknowledge that they might not be ideal for this use. Mine has been fed mostly mid range cast reloads, so nothing to report where cracks are concerned.
Additionally, EAA has earned a reputation for less than splendid customer service. To be fair, however, I've not had any dealings with them myself.

FWIW, you might want to also have a look at the Dan Wesson RZ-10
Edit:
This one is pretty cool as well. http://www.stiguns.com/nitro-10/

I thought that CZ-USA dropped the 10mm.

If I may suggest that you do not go with the C-BOB (or similar short barreled 1911) if you are using hot loads. With the factory standard issue loads, it is great (yeah, I've got one).

Apparently they did at one point. However, from the blurb:
Quote:
At one time we discontinued all of our 10mms, only to see demand for a quality production 1911 in 10mm rise. Back by popular demand and in limited quantities, we are proud to present our Razorback.
The RZ-10 is a 5" 1911 and features a serrated Clark-style target rib machined on the top of the slide with fixed defensive sights. We fit a match-grade ramped barrel for use with the most popular 10mm loads and smoother feeding. The slide is mated to our standard forged frame with undercut trigger guard and smooth front strap. On both the frame and the slide we polish the flats to a soft brushed finish and sandblast the rounds. The gun is finished off with a nice set of double diamond cocobolo grips.
There is apparently the DW Titan as well, but it's a whole order of magnitude higher on the price scale. Pretty much a custom piece in price, and very likely production quantities.

Reasonable price, currently, too.

It reminds me of their Talo edition.

Smith and Wesson had a revolver in 10mm as well that is very pretty. They seem a bit pricier.

I'm holding out for a xdm in 10mm...

I've got a 460 rowland conversion for the 1911. Its pretty brutal. 10mm is in the same power range in the loadings your talking about. Its borderline painful to shoot even with double hearing and gloves.

Anyway when you step into that range of power there aren't a lot of semi auto built well enough to handle. Buffalo bore in a routine situation. When your shooting max or above that you need to be extra cautious with parts wear and spring wear.

Semi auto really don't do well in those pressure ranges. Pushing 135+grain bullets past 1300fps is really revolver and desert eagle territory.

STI Perfect 10 with higher spring rate would be the sh*@. My G-20 C can handle anythnig I throw at it, but you are not looking in that directon.
