    Hey Guys, Got a few various questions regarding building a 10mm 1911. Currently I have the frame from a .45, but its already got the small strip above the slide stop removed as its a fairly new frame and its a copy of colts new ones, I'm making a small assumption that its okay to use a .45...
  2. Rock Island Armory
    I was just offered a trade on a Rock Island Armory 10MM full-size 1911. I have ZERO experience with the brand but have been looking for a 10MM for backcountry carry. What's the consensus here on build quality, reliability, and function? I appreciate any time taken to help me out!

    My new Stainless ll 10mm, the first time out after a field strip, clean and oil my first round will not chamber. Gets hung with nose at the top of feed ramp just started into chamber. Thought it was ammo (PMC 200g fmc) but have tried many since. I've looked but trying to reduce screen time. My...
  4. Rock Island Armory
    Hey all, I have a Rock Island FS HC 2011 in 10mm and have an issue with shooting nuclear-loaded 10mm from any manufacturer. I believe my slide is cycling too fast with the stock recoil spring, causing rounds to get either caught under or completely skipped by the slide. This doesn't happen with...
  5. Springfield Armory
    Hey everyone, New here. I’m picking up a new Springfield Ronin 1911 in 10mm today. I’ve been reading that the springs in some 1911’s can’t handle full power 10mm loads. I’ve tried to google, but can’t find any info. Does anyone know if the Ronin can handle full power 10mm loads, or do I need to...

    I’m new to this forum but not to 1911’s. Just picked up another of the RIA 1911A1 FS, Tactical's in 10mm at Murdocks Ranch store. They had ten (10) of them along with thirteen (13) of the RIA G.I. model …. On SALE! For 15% off! I don’t think I have ever seen more than two of either of these in...
  7. Kimber
    I always wanted a 1911 and the fact that I am taking a trip into bear country gave me cover to get one. I bought a 10mm Kimber Long Slide. I also bought some 220g hard cast bullets from Buffalo Bore. Wanted to see if others had used this or a similar combo. I talked with Kimber and they...
  8. Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting
    I just finished my first build using a 10MM/.40 S&W RIA kit, which unfortunately didn't include the reverse bushing and the ejector pin was faulty, so I put the gun together without the recoil spring, guide rod, and ejector just to get everything else fitted and try some function testing. Upon...
  9. Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting
    First off, any help greatly appreciated! I've been pondering over this for the past few days now. I'm building a CCO in 10mm and was planning to weld a Briley magwell. Part already in hand, ready to start milling away when I noticed the sear spring slot is almost at the same level with the MSH...
