Feeding The Beast

There are a lot of choices when it comes to ammunition for the 10mm. For testing purposes I loaded up with a wide variety of factory ammunition from Federal, HPR, SIG SAUER, Winchester, HSM, Buffalo Bore, DoubleTap, Hornady and Cor-Bon. I wanted to run as big a variety of ammo through the pistol as possible.

I figured out quickly on the range this custom pistol’s well-made with superb fit and function. The slide’s silky smooth, and the trigger has a crisp, clean break at a little over 3 lbs. The pistol points well and was easy to get on target. All ammo fed flawlessly and ejected with authority. Nighthawk machines a special plug for the 10mm long slide, making it possible to use a standard-length recoil spring normally found on 5″ guns.

I really liked the Trijicon RMR reflex sight on the gun. RMR stands for “Ruggedized Minature Reflex,” by the way. The pistol came with the RMO 6 Model with a 3.25 MOA red dot. Other models are available with smaller or larger dot sizes. The RMR has eight brightness settings adjusted by pressing the “plus” or “minus” buttons on either side of the optic. This is a real benefit as the shooter can adjust the intensity for changing light conditions.
