Armscor 10mm Tactical II
« on: November 27, 2012, 10:27:45 AM »
Rumor has it they will offer the tactical II in 10mm very soon.

Should look about like this:  https://us.armscor.com/products/1911-tactical-a2-fs-45acp

Single stack 1911, 8+1, ambi-safety, high ride grip safety, ramped barrel.

Well it would be yet another 1911 platform, even with the ramp feed supported barrel.  They better make that thing to handle true 10mm and not watered down stuff at 40S&W or worst 45ACP......... ???  Time will tell and show!

A price of around $700 seems alright, but that's assuming it's worth buying in the first place.

And like The_Shadow said;  "make that thing to handle true 10mm"

If Kimber can do it I fail to recognize the issue with the other 1911 style manufacturers.  The last thing this world needs is another 10mm platform that can't handle an honest 10mm load.
Gun Control?  Oh yes, the theory that becoming a victim is somehow morally superior to defending yourself & your family.  Makes perfect sense.

These days it seems Armscor has a pretty good rep among the eastern rim frame makers.  I don't have any huge concerns about the frames standing up if the usual precautions of flat bottom firing pin stop and 25-27 lb mainspring are in place.

The slides...Well, even the best 1911 slides don't deal as well over 30K rounds of 10mm versus say 45 acp.  Nothing can really be done about that either.  You can't contain twice the pressure without either changing the spec or reducing the service life.  Still, give me the base gun at this price, and in 20K rounds add an STI slide at the first major overhaul.

I agree.....recently looked at a RIA government model. The slide to frame fit was tighter than a much more expensive Springfield in the same shop. This was a 45 cal but their new models seem to be much improved from a few years ago. IIRC the price was about half the cost of the Springfield.

It would almost be a slap in their own face if they don't put a good barrel in it. Put on our ammo "not for unsupported chamber" and then offer a 10mm pistol like that? They would hear a lot of crap over that one!

The specs say a ramped barrel.  I would be surprised if it doesn't have pretty decent support.

Also checked CTD's shipping and they won't ship it here. Never had a problem with any other place so check your State.

I sent a note to Armscor to see if you can special order without the writing. Believe it or not that is a big deal breaker with me!

   It says bull barrel. That's different than any other 10mm I know of. Also bushingless so does that mean it is built like the 1006?

The 3rd gen S&W's have a fixed nylon bushing in the slide (replaceable) and their barrels have the ball machined on the end of the barrel that holds center of the bushing!   Those bull barrels are cut to replace the entire bushing therefore bushingless.
