Our Assessment: From Wikipedia: “The 10mm Auto cartridge was originally drafted and championed by eminent firearms expert Jeff Cooper. It was designed to be a medium-velocity pistol cartridge with better external ballistics than the.45 ACP and capable of greater stopping power than the 9mm Parabellum. When FFV Norma AB designed the cartridge at the behest of Dornaus & Dixon Enterprises, Inc. for their Bren Ten pistol, the company decided to increase the power over Cooper’s original concept. The resulting cartridge—which was introduced in 1983 and produced since—is very powerful, containing the flat trajectory and high energy of a magnum revolver cartridge into a relatively short, versatile rimless cartridge for a semi-automatic pistol.” This pistol is in Mint condition. It looks like it was taken out and shot once or twice and then put up for sale. This is a combat ready pistol with adjustable sights and a long 6” ported barrel to give you a long sight radius for better accuracy and less muzzle rise for faster double taps. The 10mm chambering is capable of delivering over 750 ft-lbs of energy out of a 4” barrel, and you will get even more out of the 6” barrel on this pistol. This pistol is the ultimate for anyone wanting a powerful self-defense pistol that is still controllable, and can also be used for handgun hunting.
