love my ruger 10mm 1911; little more weight than a standard 1911 but tames the recoil. at first did not care for the target sights until shooting it at 100 yards; they hold right in. also have a old ported glock 20 which also performs and carries well; ports help with the recoil since the gun is light in weightSo I can never determine what it is that I'm going to want as my next firearm. For some reason I've been getting more and more interested in a 10mm handgun. I'm thinking that since the 1911 is my favorite platform my next firearm will be a 1911 in 10mm. Though that is not set in stone. 10mm is set, but the platform is still up for debate.
So what's your thoughts on 10mm 1911s and if it was your choice what 10mm platform would you prefer?
I have a Springfield tpr with 6 inch barrel. Good so far . Past experience with a ruger 10mm is they are garbage . Posted in another 10mm thread so not going do again . Peace of crap , junk and possibly dangerous and if you you get the impression I dont like these pieces of shit you're right . Springfield on the other hand is very accurate and with the added weight of the 6 inch barrel recoil is very mild . I'm running handloads with bluedot and Underwood 180's with no hiccups . Sights haven't broken off and barrel lug hasn't fractured at the link pin .
