Ed Brown has been selling them for several years. I do not anticipate that the RMR will not hold up. Interestingly enough, Ed brown had actually stopped offering the LS-10 early this year. Due to lack of sales according to what they told me. However more recently they appear to have resurrected it as I got a promotional e-mail from them recently that advertised it as being available.I'll hazard a guess that 10 mm + long slide + RMR has never been done before. Interesting how rmr is going to hold up.
Ed Brown products told me that they were not big sellers. Perhaps they will see more battering. But you are talking about a pretty beefy gun so that is questionable. A Glock 19 probably weighs about half of what this gun does. Not sure if I buy into this higher rate of battering of which you speak. Ed brown also stated that they have never sold a lot of them. So yes your statement regarding a sample size is correct. And equally that for a 4,500$ gun there likely are not thousands of them out there for sampling as you say.Methinks that would indicate that there hasn't been too many of them RMR'd out there to have a large enough sample. This is 10 mm coming out with a higher velocity from a 6 inch barrel so your RMR will see a little more battering than what they see on G19s, for example. People did break them on 9 mm guns, and yours truly broke an SRO on a CZ. I do think that it will likely hold, but I also think that this isn't going to be a high volume / high rate of use gun, right? At any rate, it would be an interesting data piece.
Correct, but you are still looking at a serious impact. I would venture to guess that it would be substantially higher than what the Glock 19 slide might be subject to that to that you referred to earlier.I dunno if it is the same. Slugs obviously recoil harder but the optic itself is stationary and non-reciprocating.
I'd go with RMR on such project.
That is the key, meaning durability. While RDS have only been around a relatively short period of time. Scopes etc. have been around for quite a while. You would have to assume that they have picked up a few things along the way. And for what it is worth I have had a Kahles Helia RDS of a 45-70 lever gun for a while. It kicks significantly more than any of my shotguns, at least with the rounds that I run through it. No issues to date.Yes but there are other factors. Shotties are heavier. On pistols optic is in line with recoiling part as it moves, on shotgun optic sits above the path of bolt's travel.
In recent past there has been one specific longarm with a reputation for being hard on optics, and that is a SCAR. The common explanation was a specific recoil impulse or momentum because that rifle uses a very heavy bolt carrier, even though the perceived recoil is rather mild.
I think there are too many variables to be certain about anything. I am just glad we have durable optics these days.
Yes I have been shooting 10mm for quite a while. This will be my fifth 10mm. Currently have two S&W 1006s, a 1066, and a Colt Delta elite. Funny that you mention not having any .45s I have quite a few and have enjoyed shooting them for years but lately I have been shooting more .38 Super and 10mm.Just guessing you did remove the tag?
Very nice looking pistol.
I hope you enjoy the 10mm I am hoping they become more popular.
I really enjoy my 10 , but to most people here guessing I am a little strange no 45s here?
