airedale Posted May 10 Share Posted May 10 Back in the 80s I subscribed to most of the popular Gun Rags, Guns And Ammo was one of my favorites and Jeff Cooper's column was read every month. Jeff was a big proponent of the Scout style rifle and also the 10mm cartridge along with the Bren 10 pistol that fired it. Jeff's writing had me hooked on the Bren 10 and I came within an eyelash of getting one but before I bought, reports of chinks in the Bren 10s armor started to come forward so I held off hoping for the problems to be ironed out. Well that never happened and the company that made that pistol folded because of bad press. So in recent years there has been a resurgence of sort with the 10mm cartridge with several manufacturers putting out guns. I was real interested in the Ruger 1911 and the Remington 1911 Hunter 6 inch barrel. But again I held off due to problems in both pistols and right now neither are being made as far as I know and the old stock is selling for twice the retail. Anyhow I again started researching what is available for a decent price and also getting good reviews from folks that purchased them. The one pistol that has been getting rave review is the Turkish made Girsan 1911, the hunter model with all the bells and whistles for a very good selling price. So I bit and bought one with the cerakote finish. I just got my 10mm loading dies, brass and bullets so ammo is on the way and I will be wringing this baby out soon. Below is the old Bren 10 pistol that started the 10 mm ball rolling, Miami Vice's Sonny Crockett's handgun of choice. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
