Latest 10mm happenings

Well after talking about doing it for the past 5 years I finally decided to bite the bullet and have David Clements make me a 10mm. The friend I have been talking about it with decided to do it too. We ordered a couple of Ruger GP100 .38 Spcls in stainless steel with a 3 inch barrel and adjustable sights. As soon as they arrived we sent them strait Clements for his 10mm conversion and slab sided barrel. When the come back in 12 months or so they will look like this:


The 10 Ring

In the mean time I found a S&W Model 610 with 5 inch barrel and wood combat grips. Life is good in the 10mm world

They both look amazing. Congrats on the 610. From the looks of the Ruger it will be worth the wait.

Wow! Got my jealous-o-meter pegging.

Thanks for the great photos. I look forward to a follow-up report on the Ruger.

Thanks guys! I decided to save the wear and tear on the combats and put on a set of VZ Grips. I need to take a better picture show how good they actually look

Gp100s are tack drivers.
10mm is a very accurate cartridge.

I think you're going to enjoy your gun a lot.

David says he gets exceptional accuracy after the conversion.

Very nice 5" 610.

Good luck on the Ruger conversion project.

Every day that you wait, you're falling faster. No sleight of hand, no twist of fate, no ever after. When it's gone, it's gone. A fight to the bitter end... Life won't wait for you, no life won't wait for you, my friend.

I am trying to figure out what holster to get for the GP100 and obviously I have plenty of time for the makers that are backlogged. I have a pancake coming from Lobo gun leather in about 5 weeks now I think for the 610. I think I will go with an IWB for the Ruger though.

Very true, and when you do find them they want an arm and a leg and a kidney for them!
