Im looking at picking one up to compliment my Delta Elite and Glock 20. Just curious how they shoot and have there been any reliability issues.

It just came out this year. Ive been wanting a railed 10mm 1911 but didnt want to spend the $$$$ to have springfield or fusion custom make one for me.

I don't have a TLE-RL in 10mm ( I had a Pro Carry TLE-RL in 45) but I do have Kimber in 10mm and it runs great! I wouldn't hesitate with the TLE. I have noticed that the recoil on a 1911 in 10mm is a bit more than a Glock in 10mm with its bore being lower in the hand than 1911. I try a side by side test with my reloads one time with a buddys Glock.

Kimber 10 mm

Question, does the Kimber 10 mm have a fully supported chamber. Had a silver tip blow out in a G20 blew out the mag flame flash cooked the middle finger on my right hand.Changed to a EAA steel framed 10 been happy with it handles my hand loads with no problems they chrono at 1472 no pressure signs but empties fly 30-40 feet away. I am considering the Kimber. Anybody have any nays or yeas on the Kimber and heavy loads? Thanks

The Kimbers do have a fully supported chamber :) I have shot factory (light...) and maxed loads (according to Speers manual 13 or 14) with great results. I changed the recoild spring from the factory 18lbs to a 24lbs spring when shoooting the heavier loads to protect the frame from being battered. I think a 10mm handgun reguardless of brand flings the brass ;-D I lose about 10% of my brass when I don't shoot indoors.
