Guess I'm a 10mm Fan Boy now.
Picked up a Glock 40 longslide in 10mm Auto this weekend.
Nothing fancy. It's a Glock. It goes bang.
4.5lb trigger and fixed sights from the factory.
A friend gave me three boxes of ammo from the late 80s or early 90s.
175gr Winchester Silvertip
180gr Federal HydraShok
180gr Winchester JHP
The Silvertip is the only ammo actually loaded to 10mm velocities. The other two are castrated to less than my .40cal ammo.
175gr Winchester Silvertip = 1,305 fps
180gr Federal HydraShok = 977 fps
180gr Winchester JHP = 963 fps
Accuracy was acceptable for a Glock. But, I think I can do better with aftermarket sights or a Red Dot.
I also fired some .40 S&W ammo through the 10mm barrel. It did alright as well.
I am going to replace the front sight with a H-Viz fiber optic one. Then, I am likely going to install a Vortex Venom Red Dot sight on the MOS mount that comes with the gun. A 3.5lb connector will be installed as well. Some sand paper decals and a 9" Lone Wolf Barrel should round things off.
The factory barrel will likely get relegated to .40cal usage while the 9" barrel is used for hunting.
It ain't a small gun. But, I can run it fine and it'll primarily be a hunting gun for pigs at night.
Gotta get all my loading material in hand and I'll start making some wicked loads for it. So far..........I'm not impressed with the 10mm ammo I have. WEAK!!!!
