    Default New 10mm

    Does anyone have this gun? TRP Operator, in 10mm.

    This is my first time with a 10mm. I've had .41 magnums in the past. Wanted a steel 10mm that could handle the full power Norma-spec stuff. Saw this one and decided to try it.

    Since this is a new offering: anyone have experience with this one in particular? Is it reliable like the original TRP 1911? I ordered some Underwood 200 gr. @ 1,250 XTP stuff. If it works, it'll be the carry load for it. Hopefully it works. This was an expensive venture.

    It's an absolutely horrible gun so I'll take it off your hands.
    Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

    UPDATE:

    Took the TRP 10mm to the range. Great gun. Shot 50 rounds of American Eagle 180 FMJ. All rounds fired fed and ejected perfectly. Tried 200 gr. FMJ PMC. It failed to feed most rounds. Started to get worried. So I Shot some Speer Gold Dot 200 gr., no issues. Moved to the Hornady Critical Duty 175 gr. And it worked well. It’ s a mild load. The star of the show was the Hornady custom 180 gr. XTP @ 1,275. That’s the real deal! Hard hitting and fed perfectly.

    The gun works great, as long as PMC 200 gr. Is not used.

    I’d recommend his gun.

    I dont know the formula for energy and what not but most of the 10mms Ive had have been geared to heavy loads I think because they shoot better. My carry load is a 155gr Nosler @1550 fps. I imagine thats about the same amount of energy as a 200 @1235. When I try cheap low powered ammo they dont run as good and arent as accurate. Except for the Glocks they just dont care.

    Smith&Wesson 610 here. Feeds and shoots everything from 40S&W to 10mm. That’s cheating, I know.
