I've had some unfortunate medical circumstances which were entirely resolved by surgery today. No need to go into the sordid details, but by the Grace of God I'm all better & good to go! :bigrin:

Since I endured it well and didn't wimp around in the hosp, I figured I was due for a reward and scored this RIA 10mm. I did a lot of homework & no bad reviews about Rock Island 1911s. Can't wait to shoot it! 10mm will be a new experience for me. SW

I've good one. Only issue I had was with the grips, they were like cheese graters. And the right ambi safty lever cracked my knuckle.
I changed those items and it shot fine. In fact the first big load is waiting by the Dillon to be loaded, if I can get off my lazy ass that is.
Watch out those things heave brass a looong way off, with a vengeance.

Let us know how you do with it.

I haven't had much success with fibre optic front sights on pistols, due to my far-sightedness.
Rear sight on that one looks like it means business :bigrin:

Come on Mike where's your sense of adventure? Another new caliber means another new gun, kinda justifies it for me.

Asquare you should try the SIG 357 sig in the 1911 platform, what a shooter that is. Like a laser beam!

Our wonderful PO finally got around to delivering it today. I took it out for a function test & it runs like a striped a$$ monkey! :bigrin: I didn't know what to expect, but it's no hotter than a 45 & comes right back on target. I got along with the grips just fine - if not I was ready to swap them out with what's on my 70 series Colt.

And rebel is right - it tosses brass where you won't trip over it, and then some. But I found it all. I'll order dies & stuff tomorrow.

Overall I LIKE it! :jmp: SW

I've been loading 180's over either Accurate #5 or#9 Works good. I'm trying some loads with Alliant BE86, works real good in .357SIG, super clean powder.
!80"s I'm using are Berrys or polymer coated SNS, I have on hand some Hornady XTP's for when stuff gets rough. The SNS bullets can take the punishment without any residue left behind. I pushed them at 1500FPS in the Sig loads, nothing in the barrel.
I got brass from Diamond K in AZ. Just watch for Glock bulge.
