    Anyone like them in 10mm? Mine is old and used, The weak point is the barrel bushing. We are talking a true 1911 design. Awesome handgun after I bought it used, 15 years ago.!

    Very nice gun!

    I love the 1911 and the 10mm. But for my full size 10mm I picked the EAA Witness because it seems to have no weak points and the weight of the full mag (15 rounds) really tames the recoil of full power 10mm loads.

    I can carry it C&L like my beloved 1911s or lower the hammer for a DA first shot if I want.

    My uncle only likes 10mm. He says they shoot much flatter.

    That's why you need to roll your own.


    I just sold my Kimber Stainless Target II 10mm to buy a Kimber Pro Carry 45.

    10mm in a 1911 is ultimately badass. It tolerated super hot loads with no problems. Someday ill get another 5" 10mm.
    I too have a G20, 3rd gen. I regularly kick IDPA *** with it.

    I've never seen an EAA Witness before, but that thing looks so much like a CZ 75B it's not even funny.

    Once I start reloading(who knows when that'll be) I'd like to pick up something in a 10mm, just not sure what.

    Fred, Your pm is turned off. My FFL has a few FS. All New.
    Witness P: .45acp, 38super, 9mm, .40S&W ...$1100.00 for the set
    Witness .38 super.. $290.00


    You really do need to reload for 10mm. I shoot cast lead for pennies or 180gr HP's. Awesome round.

    10mm ammo is the same price as the beloved 45 ACP.
    $200 per 500 rounds.
    10mm in stock :)
    45 ACP --------------take a number and wait:(

    10mm is starting to look pretty good:rolleyes:

    Didn't realize it was turned off. I'll have to find out how to fix that. Thanks for the info though.

    I have had several 10 mm's over the years my favorite is the colt delta elite. I now shoot either my kimber pro carry 2 or my springfield 45. just easier to get ammo for. I just retired from the army and now have time to do some reloading who knows might get another colt soon.

    I love (ed) the 10mm in the 90's, having four S&W's in it. Then, the weak wristed whips started complaining about the recoil, so down came the power. When I could no longer find it in its original loadings, the guns got sold.:mad: Now, thanks to places like Buffalo Bore, you can get the 10 in all its glory!

    I have 2 10mm's, both Glocks, but have wanted a 1911 in 10mm for awhile.

    Dan Wesson 10mm

    I bought the Dan Wesson Point Man 7 stainless 10 mm Match. I am more accurate with it than my Colt 1911 45. I then bought a 40 cal barrel & recoil spring for my Dan Wesson. I swap the barrels whenever 10mm gets scarce. It is almost as cheap to shoot as 9mm.

    i recently bought a 10mm colt delta elite as my 2nd collectible, hasnt arrived yet..but cant wait...i also found some less expensive ultramax 10mm ammo at midway and scooped that too, closer to $0.50 a rnd.

    going straight from 9mm to 10mm might be a doosey(big step) but i still cant wait...:)

    The last Delta I had, hammered the slide where the disconnector rides up. I now have a Dan Wesson CBOB in 10mm. Well worth the price.
