    About two years ago I bought a 10mm Kimber Custom II GFO for my woods carry pistol. It shot well, for me, but had a terrible problem with FTFs (failure to feed). I tweaked the extractor tension down and that mostly eliminated the problem, but it still occasionally occurred. Took it to my 1911...

    It was a cold day here in Maine and temps are dropping fast, we'll be well below zero with wind chills for the next couple of days and everyone is layered up with their heaviest coats and flannel lined pants. I had to go to the "city" today and run some errands and decided that it's a good time...

    A friend lost her husband awhile back, and asked if I would tell her how much his gun is worth, as she needs to sell it. I am not into Kimber, 40S&W, or 10mm. So I thought I would ask here to give her an idea of what it is worth. It is a Gold Match with both a 10mm barrel and a 40S&W barrel...

    I’ve never had a 10mm 1911 and not sure if the round is optimal for this platform at any size but what y’all think? Government size or Commander for a 10mm 1911 conceal carry piece and occasional OWB hunting tool. Thanks edit I prefer commander for iwb

    I was at Cabelas and saw a kimber camp guard in 10mm. I like 10mm and love the bobtail. Anyone have experience with this or able to reccomend something at a similar price point? I'm open to shooting 45 super as well, but do like the bobtail. I plan on carrying under a jacket as well as taking...

    Hello I am new to the forum. I just started my first 1911 build last week. I chose Nighthawk Customs because they had an entire kit available in 10mm, and I did not want to go the 80% route. It was on sale also and the only kit available. Did I make a good decision? I know absolutely...

    SOLD - Nighthawk Heinie Longslide 10mm for sale for $3,100 + shipping. Awesome and incredibly accurate pistol that’s been a safe queen. Comes with its factory bag and 3 mags. Would consider trades (money on either side as appropriate) for a higher end 45 longslide, STI DVCs, or...

    I have gotten into using VV for my 45 acp loads. Was curious if anyone had used any for 10mm? Thinking 180-200 grn loads. I have both a ramped and unramped guns. I read on 10mm forum about using n350 and n105, but most of that was shooting in glocks. Anyway. Just curious.

    I stripped down my Rock today and looked around to see the different wear marks or lack there are in some areas. Since I do not completely know this platform like I do others I want to share my pictures. If you see something say something. This has about 500 rounds through it, not many due to...

    About 5 months ago, I purchased this Colt Delta Gold Cup with thoughts that it would stay with me for the foreseeable future. Things change and I have decided to let it go to a new home, hopefully one of the Addicts. According to the Colt Registry, this is a 1989 model. Since purchasing, I...

    My Easter Sunday treated me to meeting @BCD 45, an Addict many of you hold in high regard. After our FTF transaction for the two ‘Hawks pictured below I can now officially join the ranks of grateful brothers in arms for someone who we’re all lucky to have among us. A true gentleman, as honest as...

    Interested in trading my Nighthawk Heinie Longslide 10mm for a Nighthawk longslide 45acp with a light rail (ideally with a magwell too but it’s not a deal breaker). Can add some $ depending on the pistol. Incredibly accurate, just want to diversify my longslide calibers.

    Hello Fellow Addicts, After much deliberation, soul searching, and mixed feelings on this, I am going to sell off all but a handful of guns. I have some debt that is unrelated to firearms, and it would be much smarter to pay this debt off rather than have these just sit in my safe unused. I...

    I read in another thread where someone mentioned dumping all of their 45 ACP for 10mm. So what would be the advantages or disadvantages odd such a move? Is the 10mm that much better at penetration and stopping power and/or capacity than 45ACP? I mean I could see where it could run hotter. Also...

    Just started reloading again after many years. Reasons are obvious. Recently bought a Dillon 750L package with 9mm die set. I'm wanting to expand to different calibers but Dillon won't even return my calls. Excluding Dillon's dies, any recommendations on who makes high quality carbide die...
