ruger gp100 in 10mm
« on: January 19, 2013, 10:06:08 AM »
I really hate putting my buckeyes out on the chopping block and or moving away from the 10 mm.   I have heard that you can get ruger gp100's converted to 10mm but the cost is something like 650.00 and almost a years wait.  clements i think.   I wish ruger would just see the light and start putting out gp100's in 10 mm oh yeah and rossi a 10 mm lever gun.  OH yeah!!!! now were talking!!!!

I have a GP100 and thought the same thing at different times. However... a stout .357 the way it was intended in the GP100 is a ton-o-fun too!

Yeah, that would be nice
I think a Redhawk and a Deerfirld Carbine in 10mm would be nice too

I'n thinking a lighter carry piece would be better than a big old Redhawk. I prefer big bullets in big guns.
Some people think I'm paranoid because I have so many guns. With all my guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

I personally would never buy a Rossi

 Instead of a Deerfield, why not just buy a Mech Tech?

Some locales have signifcant restrictions on magazine capacity in hunting rifles.  That would be one reason a mech-tech might not be an option for certain applications.

"Hunting" vs. statutory law is different.  A simple "plug" in a magazine would satisfy hunting regulations, such as used in shotguns.  The "manufacturer's" rules/laws are different between hunting and possession/capacity rules.  When "hunting", only actual capacity in possession matters (within the local statute).  Legal definitions include actual, and potential capacity.  "Plugging" a magazine is simple, and since changing the "capacity" requires disassembly, it's not a problem.  Living/hunting in CA sucks, but it has made us much aware of any possible solutions available.

Rossi has been acquired by Taurus. My 35+ year old model 66 Taurus .357 mag shoots just as good today as the few hundred thousand rounds ago, which was durned good. Maybe their quality has improved.

I have a old Interarms Rossi 720 44Spl & an Interarms Rossi 357 levergun and they are super performers. I know they have a spotty rep but at this point what really are your options? I would love a nice Marlin 1894 10mm but I dont think that will happen anytime soon, but the Ruger 10mm conversion is something I really am thinking about doing.

It is nice, not really much of an improvement ballistically over the .357 at this barrel length, but it is cool all the same.  Shoots pretty nice, I wish my grips were just a touch longer

I have my MechTech
A nice MG20....runs flawlessly with its 20 Round Mags


Can't remember now, but I did read somewhere the Marlin is thinking of offering the 1894 in 10mm
As I said, I don't remember where I read it, but it would be nice too

I would be first in line to get a Marlin 1894 in 10mm, I love a 10mm & lever guns so it would be great. Hows that Mec-Tec upper working out for ya? I love my 1911 45acp Mec-Tec and bet its a ball in 10mm, do they fit on a G21SF lower?

I would even be happy if S&W brought back the 610 and 310.  O.K.  maybe also added a 510.

Here's a response from S&W I got the other week asking about another run of the 610 and/or 310...

Dear Customer,
 
We have gotten quite a few requests regarding a 10mm revolver. I have forwarded each one to our management team so they can see what our customers are looking for. We haven't been updated as of yet if we will be making one but with all the requests we have gotten in it may be a possibility in the near future.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Rachel
