beautiful gun! and with the weight of a 1911 the recoil would probably feel pretty good.

I wonder why they haven't tried to make a submachine gun or carbine in 10mm.

They did. It's called the MP5/10.

10mm fell out of favor when the whole "hi-capa magdumping wonder 9" thing hit. The fucking GLOCK serving as the epitome of that. The next generation of weapons will be in things like 7.92 VBR and 6.5 CBJ. It's doubtful we'll ever see the sun rise on the one centimeter again.

Glock makes all kinds of calibers, even 10mm. But yeah that was how they ended up being well-known. R.I.P bear-stopper (at least the Norwegians think 10mm is).

But 10mm GLOCKs are basically expensive grenades.

Indeed. It's really too bad.

They go boom. Seems like the GLOCK can't handle the awesome of The Centimeter. .40 GLOCKs and 10mm Auto GLOCKs both tend to blow up.

You have to admit the M1911 is perhaps one of the best firearms ever.

Nice range toy, shame a Makarov can empty its magazine down range and on target in half the time that this will - all the "power" and "accuracy" means nothing when recoil is throwing your aim out of whack.

I sure hope venison is worth the $1.75/round cost because hunting deer is about all 10mm is good for.

Out of interest, though, why would you go for 10mm, which downloads into the AWFUL .40, and not .45 Super, which can be easily downloaded into the .45 ACP?

Ever shot one, kid? I've handled plenty of .45s and 10mms, and all it takes is a bit of practice and not being a manorexic stickman. A Makarov is even weaker than 9mm Pansy, and that tiny barrel doesn't help much at all. There's a reason ISCP competition shooters prefer the 10mm; with a bit of training and a good compensator the performance speaks for itself. Not to mention that on a Makarov you'd HAVE to magdump, whereas with this or a .45 you can pick your shots, because all it takes is one. It's a ratio thing; sure a 9mm Pansy might put more rounds downrange, but you NEED more rounds downrange. A 10mm or .45 might not match the rate of fire in a high-stress situation (though, as mentioned before, speed-shooting competition shooters don't seem to have a problem), it doesn't need to. And 10mm Auto offers much more magazine capacity than the .45, so I can combine the best of both worlds; better knockdown and accuracy than .45, with similar magazine capacity to 9mms.

Can you say "Handloading?" What about "ISPC" or "Competition"? Or, this is a tough one, "Not having to worry about the bad guy getting up, ever"?

The .40 is better than 9mm Pansy, and offers more magazine capacity than .45 ACP. But, not being a pansy myself, I'd never want to down-load my cartridges. Down-loading is rather pointless, unless one is the aforementioned manorexic stickman. If I wanted less performance, I'd just buy a .40 S&W.

nice concept for a great pistol. just some advice though, one 1911 guy to another. Colt ran into some problems with their delta elites. that problem has been fixed but they found they needed to install a guide rod buffer dual recoil springs and beef up the frame rails. if you gonna spend the money on a custom 1911 in 10 mil i would suggest a frame designed with the enhancements colt did. a standard 1911 is a tough gun and great with powerful cartridges like .45 auto, but 10 mil is another story. you may end up beating the gun to death without the beefed up frame and recoil system. still nice setup.

I'm definately using very heavy recoil springs, 10mm Auto springs from Fusion, and I was under the impression that the RIA heavy frame was tough enough to take it. I'd also always use a full length guide rod and attendant springs anyway. The slide is a beefed up 10mm version from Fusion. The only thing I'm not 100% sure about is the frame, really.

RIA makes a standard 1911. the delta elite is a modified 1911, part of the family, not a true sibling. Just thought i'd say something. hate to see you spend the money on a dream and get hit with that info on trial and error. also, glad to hear you did research. 1911s a good gun but was built around the .45. 10mm is a whole different animal.

Maybe I'll go with a Fusion frame (which are made for 10mm or .45) afterall.

A better animal, in my opinion.

glad to give the info. i prefer the .45 myself, easier to feed and a hell of a lot better than a 9, but then if you know your gun and can get good hit the .22 does the job.
hope it works out for ya. 1911 in 10mil is actually something i've thought about, just haven't been able to afford it. think mines gonna be a colt or a kimber though. start with the base and go from there, but there's a lot to be said about a personal gun built from the ground up. good luck with it cause the pic is beautiful

I'd take a .45 over 9mm Pansy any day, but there's just something special about 10mm. Plus, the cost gives me incentive to work on my handloading skills.

You'll save more money handloading than cutting coupons, that's for sure. And when so much of the 10mm they sell these days is that miserable "FBI Load" that barely matchs the .40 Short and Weak, it's necessary for a 10mm fanboy.

I did. 10mm > .45 means 10mm is better than .45. .45 is a bulky, slow, outdated cartridge. The only reason to use .45 over 10mm is if you plan on using a silencer all the time, because 10mm is very high velocity.

I can't really see why, 10mm gives you more shots per mag, more accuracy, more range, and more power. It's only faults are recoil and cost, which can be alleviated by training and handloading respectively.

It's not a sexy '1911 without wood grips. Practical maybe, effective, maybe, but not truely sexy. Not that I'm opposed to polymers, but a 1911 is a 1911.

Wouldn't any semblance of accuracy vanish as soon as the trigger is pulled. It would be like an Uzi, only even worse.
I'm not really a gun nut, so I might not be knowing exactly what I'm talking about, but I've fired short barreled firearms on full auto and I know how hopelessly inaccurate they are.

10mm Auto is a cartrige developed by Norma in Sweden for the BrenTen pistol (as seen on Miami Vice). It was intended to offer Magnum-Level performance in a cartridge equal to or smaller than .45 ACP, and in this it succeeded spectacularly. It's the only pistol cartrige legal to hunt with. 10mm Auto surpasses .45 in power, range, accuracy and magazine capacity. The recoil is a tad stiffer, and it's a bit expensive, but it's the best pistol cartridge on the market today.

Not quite true: in the state of Missouri, any centerfire cartridge is legal to hunt with providing you're using non-FMJ rounds and have a magazine capacity no greater than ten rounds. This rule applies to all firearms (rifles, handguns).

:iconscrewfaceromeo:
ScrewfaceRomeo Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, that's actually the law for whitetails specifically, in my state, acording to my handbook. So, a bit inaccurate, yeah

:iconspreewerke:
Spreewerke Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012
Missouri is much more lenient. To my understanding, all firearms laws apply to all seasons that are hunted with centerfire firearms (coyotes and deer and such). For shotguns, I believe the only real restriction is a magazine capacity of two rounds, one in the chamber.

:iconscrewfaceromeo:
ScrewfaceRomeo Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah. Minnesota is more restrictive, but less so for shotguns, there's no limits on them, other than automatic and barrel length
Reply
:iconspreewerke:
Spreewerke Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2012
As long as a shotgun in Missouri is not fully-automatic and has the 2+1 capacity, I think it's legal regardless of barrel length. I have never even considered the thought anyone might try out a sawn-off shotgun/short-barreled shotgun for hunting, though, so I'd have to check barrel length laws with the game warden.

We're really pretty relaxed when it comes to hunting laws, though. I like to think our rules make sense, but aren't overly-restrictive either.

I believe that, so long as you can offer proof that you A. are who you say you are B. are not a convicted felon C. have proof of sanity and D. are levelheaded and responsible, you should be able to own most any semi-automatic weapon.
