So I’ve been pondering this question and the GAS (Gun Acquisition Syndrome) it unleashed. This month’s G&A cover features a beautiful Springfield TRP 1911 in 10mm. Which is a caliber, based on all the chat here, I need to explore. Nice article until I hit the MSRP of $1800.

So just for shits and grins… What’s a good 1911 10mm, if any, in the $1k or less range?

The 10mm and 1911 go together like peanut butter and jelly. I prefer it pver 9mm or .45 acp ,only downside is availability.

Thanks. So I just check the CA gun roster. Not a single Colt of any kind. I can now get off roster guns but I can’t just to to the local gun shop and lay hands on it. Heading to Az in July for a few days. I’ll get me a list and have a gun fondle fest.

@Caw with or without the rail?

@mquinn55, I can recommend the Rock Island there’s two models you might be interested in.
I don’t know how you feel about the Kriss Vector in 10 millimeter but that might be an option.

A 10mm Ruger gp100 would be uber cool too.

I don’t know, but I have heard that the Ruger SR1911 in 10 mm is just as good as the Colt Delta Elite in 10 mm. The Ruger is a little heavier (5 ounces more). The Ruger costs around $200 less.

So, ask around. Get a comfy feel. But, for the 10 mm, more and more guns are being made in that caliber lately. Check Ruger’s website for more details:

Good luck!

Agreed. And the extra weight of the Ruger will help with recoil.

Plus, the extra weight left in your (mquinn55’s, or anyone’s) wallet will help with about whatever.

$1,000 can always go to a quality optic for a firearm you already have. Eotech EXPS 2-2 with the G33x magnifier goes for about a grand…

Or the EOtech vudu 1-6
