You got a LOT to learn and a LOOOONG way to go.

I did not see any complaining from you Joe. I completely understand where you are coming from.

I did start filing down the edge on the barrel, just enough to knock down the sharp corner. This will make for a smother loading.

Cool deal. Can't wait to hear how it shoots with some hot loads.

It is if you are talking about the build yes. I think you are the same one talking about having 2k in parts to make it run right. I highly doubt it would take that much but money better spent if a 1911 10mm is what you want with a build that runs right can be had for $1000. You cancelled though right? Adding lights, accs and stuff no, that's normal user stuff.

Don't think I have much to learn about 10mm's. Have been messing with them a long while now and understand the firearms and round itself.

You obviously haven't read a single word I've written. Your entire post is made up of jibberish and really makes you look quite foolish. Maybe you should quit while you're behind. BTW, that Razorback might make for a decent base gun build. The others...while 10mm's, aren't 1911's. So why drag them into this thread? I own a G20 and G29. Does that have anything to do with this thread?

Sounds like RIA has their head up their ***!
It's like a comedy of errors here.....

If someone told me to run a 14lb spring in a 10mm I would immediately know they are absolutely clueless. Kinda scary that RIA is giving out this advice.

I did but it was an 11lb spring with the top 10mm out there

Made no difference for the purpose of my test.

Can't argue with that statement and did not have enough experience with the 1911 10mm to argue with him on what # spring was needed, I just knew that the spring it came with was not enough.

This is my first 1911 10mm, and my third 10mml, the other two are S&W 1006. So I'm still learning about the 1911 10mm. The 1006 is a tank and can handle HOT loads and never needed tweaking, both ran 100% out the box!

So, the consensus I am seeing is that it should be around 20lbs spring minimum? If so, I'll buy a heavier spring.

You can get away with ~18lb, but I' probably start with 20lb and go up from there, maybe see where your at each increment. Personally if it were me, I'd be looking to play with mainsprings and throw in that flat EGW FPS stop as well.

If it were me, to save a bit of shipping costs, I'd buy a 20, 21, & 23#
The Delta Elite runs a 23#, the bull barrel is not going to slow
the slide much.
If you had a squared firing pin stop you could
lower the spring pressure a few pounds. However the squared
fps placed a bit more wear on the hammer & pin. I prefer to
tune with springs for the load at hand.

Good ideal! I'll buy the 3 springs and see which one works with my loads. Thanks for the help!

I'll look into the EGW FPS also, thanks for the advice!

I know once I get the right spring down it will run 100%.

Handled one at Cheaperthandirt in McKinney and it wouldn't lock back the slide consistently when pulling slide back with mag in it. Also, they still use the crappy unbeveled ambi safety.

I took some pics at the range the other day of a guy with a 1911 in 10mm, not sure of his group size but it functioned fine.

20 pound recoil spring seems to be standard for 5" 1911s, why this wasnt issued with your RIA is beyond me. its an easy enough fix though for cheap.

maybe they figure on folks using the watered down federal, remington, cci stuff, mistaking that for real 10mm ammo.

I sm thinking what the others have suggested, that RIA doesn't have a whole lot of experience with 10mm.

Even Colt had issues at first with their Delta Elite (as you know).

i figured this was common knowledge in the gun making community....5" 1911 10mm needs a 20 pound spring at least....im just the layman and i knew it.

however, the 10mm is a uniquely American cartridge and
