10mm semi-auto handguns / Re: S&W 1076 EDC
« on: October 31, 2017, 01:21:31 PM »
Why have you decided against a 10mm Commander sized 1911? I have a Dan Wesson 10mm Commander Specialist in stainless steel that I special ordered through them before they added a Commander Specialist to their catalog in .45 ACP. I have no doubt they would make you one as well if you contact them like I did. It only took them 3 months to make it.

As for the S&W 1076, I had a brand  new one back when they were first released back in the 90's. I really hate that S&W safety located right on the slide where you grip it to chamber a round. The other thing I hated about S&W pistols is that magazine disconnector they have that disables the trigger if there is not a magazine inserted in the magazine well. If you are in the middle of a shooting incident and tactically drop your empty magazine with the last round in the chamber (as a safety measure so that you can still fire off a round if the situation called for it) while ejecting the empty magazine to conduct a combat reload, you can't fire that chambered round until a magazine is inserted. I don't currently own any S&W pistols because of those two reasons.   

The 1076, for me at least, is just one of those kinda bucket list guns. I like the 10mm in a Commander and back in June I contacted them to see about a build in a Commander. When it was all said and done it was $2,500.00. I'd love to have one but not that bad...

The mag/trigger issue was also with some of the old S&W Model 59s. I carried one of those for a VERY short period of time back in the day.

Thanks for the info.

Building one is probably beyond me at this point. Thanks anyway!

Good to hear!

I see Sig made a 1911 (Spartan) in 10mm. Now if they will only make one in the "carry" size (Commander).

Sorry, but Jon Stewart never informed me of anything but the mindless drivel of snarky leftists.

I also have switched my EDC. Now carrying a Glock 29 Gen 4 in a Zorn Wraith Kydex IWB or an Alein Gear 3.0 Cloak Tuck. The G29 is loaded with Underwood 165gr JHP. I also carry a G20 extra mag.

Just keep checking Gun broker . And start buying magazines! They go for close to 100.00 a piece now.

Or build your own. You can still get all the parts except for buttplate catch. I made one from a small piece of aluminum and a #6 SHCS.  Still runs you abut $60 ea but better than the alternative.  I Made 5 mags last year, have had no issues after 400 rounds.

Interesting!

You must have watched a different video than you posted.

At the end of the video he makes all the right points.

1.  Shame on federal for marketing 40 S&W ammo as 10mm
2.  You can through a lot of money away on ammo loaded in 10mm cases, paying a premium, but only get 40 S&W velocity
3.  The 10mm is a "lot" more powerful than the 40, if you get actual 10mm ammo
4.  Caveat Emptor

His biggest problem is he seems only shoot what he can buy at local gun stores.  He needs to order up some Underwood.


I couldn't agree with you more! It would be interesting to see an Underwood 40 and 10 go head to head. I would hope there would be significant differences. I carry Underwood every day in my G29. I have never shot anything other than 10mm from Underwood so I have nothing to compare it to but the Underwood that I carry (165gr JHP (Gold Dot)) has a pretty good bark to it. On that, I never considered the 10mm to have anything close to a prohibitive recoil no matter what I was shooting.

Anyone carrying a S&W 1076 as an EDC?

Since my elusive 1911 10mm in a Combat Commander size has failed to appear I wanted to see if anyone is carrying the 1076.

Thanks guys!
