Looking for feedback from users.
I don't own a Jagare so take my opinion with a grain of salt. That said I have owned my fair share of Kimbers (probably 10 or so over the years); and I still own a Super Carry Pro that is my go to gun when I carry. So I'm far from being anti-Kimber. Onward; I currently own 6 or 7 10mm pistols including a Delta Elite, a Razorback, a VBOB, a couple of EAA Witness' etc. My first thoughts here are that for that kind of money you can get into a Dan Wesson with the same features. The DW is a much higher quality gun. Might also take a good look at the EAAs too. You'd save yourself quite a bit of money and have a much more versatile gun of at least comparable quality and better or at least more features.
With that said, do you mean by saying I’d save quite a bit of money and have a much more versatile gun with more features if I buy a Kodiak?
I was referring to the EAA guns with that comment but yes I would consider the Kodiak a better gun. and you get the benefit of a 6" long slide with it; although you wouldn't save anything with it if you put a red-dot on it. More gun for your money for sure
My daughter bought a 10mm Witness, the frame cracked on about the 10th round.
Not bashing, just saying.
For the price of the Super Jugare or a Dan Wesson you can buy a pretty sweet 44 mag or 454 Casull (sorry but I had to- no 10 mm post is complete without a revolver guy crowbarring in something about a 44 or 454 ). In all seriousness- I agree on the Dan Wesson and the EAA Witness. Freefall- EAA is known for fairly good quality- every manufacturer has the occasional manufacturing defect- even CZ, Ruger, Smith and Wesson etc
I own a standard size Kimber in 10 mm and have had no issues it functions flawlessly and is very accurate it's a bit of a handful compared to the .45.
Bummer. Factory ammo? Steel or polymer frame? The drawback I have with EAA is it comes with only 1 magazine, ugh.
Steel frame, factory ammo, I disremember the brand.
Is that a decider?
I am aware that EAA had an issue with their "wonder" finish and had some cracking issues but not aware of any issues with the standard steel frame.
I own a Witness Stock and a Witness compact; both in 10mm with thousands of rounds through each and never a single issue. I competed with the Stock for a while so it probably has 40 or 50K rounds through it and the Compact probably about 5k through it. I load my own ammo and it's loaded fairly hot; for sure hotter than commonly available 10mm factory ammo.
I would consider EAA and Kimber to be of equal quality. Actually when I think about it I don't think any of the manufacturers listed in this post have a clear quality advantage other than Dan Wesson (when limiting the discussion to semi-auto pistols).
That’s what I was saying. Even though his daughter’s EAA cracked I would not let that dissuade someone from buying an EAA- they are known for being fairly good quality
You can get revolvers in 10mm. Ruger makes Blackhawks and GP-100's in 10mm.
If you're going to carry a revolver it's tres easy to carry one in a truly effective caliber.
I bought them both, Jagare and Kodiak.
Ooh,head to head comparison review coming!
Now that they have a cheaper option than the $7,500 Field Pistol and Added multi-caliber capability, I may actually consider one of these. 7.5mm, 10mm, .40S&W, and 9mm.
What is the price on the “cheaper” one?
It, to me, looks like a CZ75 that accidentally walked into a tacticool suburban commando makeover
