Kimber 10mm

I'm looking at buying a kimber eclipse in 10mm or a tle/rl ii.

Price is pretty comparable, any main difference besides the finish and rail? I notice the kimber site lists the mag capacities differently but that doesn't seem like a huge deal.

My question is this, which would you recommend and why? Also, how many magazines come with them? Is it still just one? I haven't bought a new one since 2010.

I believe it is still just one magazine. I own the Eclipse in 10 mm I really like the gun and that caliber, that round has got some pop! Almost forgot I buy my 10 mm magazines from Joe's magmania online. Good quality and they function great. I bought five for 89.95 with 1/4" pads already on them. That included all charges.

I'm looking at the TLE, The Eclipse and the Sig Tacops. The Sig does come with 4 magazines, but it has an external extractor. Also considering a Sig P220 as well.

I'd be hard pressed to recommend anything but Chip McCormick mags.

Didn't even know sig had a 1911 in 10mm. I looked at the p220 but the version I'd like isn't made anymore.

The tle is about 100 bucks cheaper than the eclipse but its kinda moot all things considered.

Never understood why kimber only ships with one magazine though.

Also did a quick look around and can't find the tacops 10 in stock anywhere.

There are "7" Sig Tacops 10mm pistols listed on GunBroker right now. Priced between $980.00 to $1,079.00.

Yeah, my last GunBroker experience wasn't good at all. Ended up losing 800 bucks.

Depends on the seller though, I didn't check there.

Keep in mind!

Whichever gun you decide on some of the 10 mm come with a fully supported ramp barrels. Kimber Eclipse is one that does.That is one of the reasons I bought the Eclipse 10 mm. If you want to run hotter loads a supported barrel can make a difference there are others out there. I believe RIA has a supported barrel. Not sure about the Sig Tacops 10, I do not think the Colt Delta Elite is fully supported. Do your own research I have come close to being wrong before but I was mistaken.

By any chance do you know if the Camp Guard is a fully supported barrel?

Wow, OK I guess chit happens. I have lost count of the number of weapons I have bought off of Gunbroker without any kind of problem. To be clear never had any kind of issue. You might want to give it a try again. IDK. I have a TLE Pro (TFS) .45. In 10mm I would probably buy the Eclipse 10mm.

Check your account history Arland because you may have won a buy 10 get one free special....

I haven't had any issues either and the 10mm will be one of the next guns that I purchase down the road.
