Thread: 1911 Chambered in 10mm

    1911 Chambered in 10mm

    Can I get some direction of where to locate this particular handgun. Would really like a custom but Les Baer wont do a 10mm but would also get a production made if the right one. Made in the USA Only do not want import.

    Colt Delta Elite - Good luck finding one for under $1500
    Kimber - About as pricey as the Colt
    RIA (I know you said no imports but it is what it is)

    Just a suggestion, if you want a more powerful 1911, go for a .460 Rowland conversion. Go big, or go home.

    My boss just followed your advice and got this one for his 30th birthday...

    The Kimber 10mm is the way to go. Eclipse Custom II. I did a video on it. One of the best 1911's made. Very low recoil for a 10mm

    I would love a Kimber, but I'm unable to convince myself to part with that much money...especially in this economy.

    If you're stressing over the cost of a 1911, good ones aren't cheap. Maybe Glock is a better solution to your needs.

    Yep, which is why I already own a G20SF and a G29SF.

    Yea, things have been a little "tight" in my household too! Good choice on the Glocks though.

    My next gun purchase will be the RIA in 10mm.
