    Hi all
    I have been lurking around the edges here for a while. Had 1911s all my life.
    Carry an AMT Combat and love it, I am looking for a Dan Wesson in 10 MM.......
    Anyone know where I can get one?

    Thanks

    Got two myself and will never part with them. Finding a 10mm DW for sale will be difficult and you likely won't get any bargains. Used versions get snapped up very quickly. I believe they have started making the Razorback again so you might find a new one. That won't be cheap either. Good luck. I have a feeling you'll need it. I think me and dan_fl are the only members here that have 10mm DWs.

    Thanks for the reply's guys. I sure do hate to buy a used gun without putting my grubby little fingers on it. Will prob have to do a lot of lookin before I find one I like.

    Check out www.gunbroker.com
    Most used Dan Wesson's can be repaired with Ed Brown parts without too much modifications.

    I would set up an agreement with the seller for buy back if the firearm is not as advertised.

    Yep but i would rather have one that doesn't need repair to start with.

    There may be one or two on an auction site that are NIB or new.

    Does it have to be a Dan Wesson ? Colt & CZ make 10 mm guns. Even "G" makes a model.

    I had a "G" model 20 for a while.... felt like I had a 4x4 post in my hand. Traded it for a metal detector... at least now I can hold my head up again lol. It will have to be some sort of 1911 (they just feel right in your hand) for me to be happy. A Delta Eleate (and i prob spelled it wrong) would be real nice!!!

    Kimber makes a nice 10mm too ... several actually

    I have an Eclipse Custom II and a First Edition Stainless Delta Elite. Both are good shooters, but I replaced the grips with a Hogue finger position-style.

    I had a First Edition Delta Elite in blued steel, and it was a piece of crap (medallions fell off the first time shooting it, jams, galling, poor fit...); it went to Colt three times (under warranty). When it returned from the third repair, I swapped it for a Smith M27 Special Edition and wrote Colt a letter of disappointment.

    Thanks for the info on the Delta Elite. Like I said earlier I will prob have to do a lot of looking before I pick one. So If you have an opinion on a good 10 MM please let me know.
