Anyone ever hear of a silencer for a 1911 in 10 MM (Kimber Eclipse Custom II...not a 40 S&W)? I've got one and I shoot full power 10MM...not the stuff downloaded to just above 40 S&W performance.


Thanks,
Ken

The only 10mm can I have shot is the Raptor 40/10. But that is a subgun can, so I guess I am not much help. :)

I've never seen a 10mm silencer advertised at all. To make the 10mm quiet you'd have to shoot something subsonic so by the time you do that you're in .40 S&W territory. I've got an AAC Evo 40 but I don't think it's rated for 10mm. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Wouldn't the 10 offer the option of 200 and 220 grain projectiles a lot easier than 40, yet be easier to suppress well than a .45?

I have a couple boxes of 200 grain plated bullets for my 10mm if I ever get around to handloading for it again.

Thank all of you for your replies!

Yes, you can get the 200 gr going pretty easy. In fact, the guy I buy ammo from has a 230 grain hard cast bullet....but he loads them full strength. I buy from Doubletap Ammo at :
http://www.doubletapammo.com

They have been very good to deal with....personal service for now...if they grow I know that may change, but for now the service is great. In fact, the owner sent me a new 24# spring free without being asked for my Kimber. He said the 18 # wasn't enough and tossed it in my order for nothing! Now, I appreaciate the freebee, but more importantly I appreciate the thought that I needed more than what the factory supplied!

That's a good point about downloading it to a 40 cal to make it really quiet...but, if it can hold up to the 10MM at full power it oughta' be really well built.

Thanks,
Ken

I would load 200g jacketed bullets at 1000fps which IMO is still better than .40S&W ballistics, although Longshot & some of the VV powders will get the short & wimpy close to the 200g @ 1000fps arena. One of the plated bullet makers does (or did) a 220g TC 10mm bullet, so you could use that at about 1000fps and be knocking at .45 hardball ballistics with a better SD for more penetration.

I have a G29 in 10mm with a KKM 40cal conversion barrel treaded that I shoot my EVO-40 on and love. The evo-40 is designed to shoot 10mm but not the 230gr DT ammo. It'll have sonic crack anyway. But yes 10mm is fine as long as your shooting subsonic rounds no problem. I also shoot my evo-40 on my G19 in 9mm with 30rd mags, it's a blast, but I did have to buy a seperate piston in .5/28 to fit the LWD 9mm barrel. I happen to think the evo-40 is the best all round can because it does so much. I call it the Evo-10/49. Three for the price of one, and I'm sure you could shoot a subsonic .357sig also, but haven't tried, and don't really care for that round anyway. .380 wouldn't be problem either, but I don't know of a good host weapon, and wouldn't use it from anything other than plinking. Evo-40/10/9/.357/.380, what the hell elso do you need.
