Come IC, there are only about 50 companies making 1911's in 10mm.  If ever there were a market segment that needed better and more representation, it is definitely a 1911 in 10mm. :P

It could be some play on XD, like the XD-X.  I can hope anyway.

Just read that Remington is on the verge of bankruptcy with $1 billion in debt. Guess they shouldn't have had such a limited selection. Just checked their website and they have 4 models of handgun available. Of course one of them is a 1911 and none are revolvers. It's no different over at Smith & Wesson, Colt and Ruger. The American companies push 1911's all day. The foreign companies are pushing polymer, lightweight high capacity modern guns that are being used by the average shooter to law enforcement agencies. The prices are crazy too. American guns are over priced.

If it's a 10mm hopefully it's a Commander size!  :D

It's an XD-M in 10mm as well as a 1911 in 10mm.
The 10mm Auto. No matter how you justify it, the .40 S&W was created for women, and pansy federal agents :-D

There are a number of links from earlier in the year discussing Springfield's intentions. The first I find was:

http://www.guns.com/2017/02/26/springfield-armory-drops-news-of-future-10mm-xdm-1911/

There are a few more to the dame effect but all are from much earlier in the year. Their website shows nothing new.

The letter "X" means 10 in roman numerals.

I get all that.  I was just wondering if some back channel leak had been documented.

Jeff Quinn said no new pistols this year. Maybe it's a rifle!

As long as this company has the same leadership, I will buy nothing from them. I have not forgotten what kind of tripe they tried to get through the IL legislature. I will not give them dollar one, that they can then give to some anti 2A IL state legislator. A pox on them and Rock River Arms.
