Now I hope The Lineman can sleep nights!

https://www.kimbertalk.com/forums/att...=1452227218218

Brought my new Eclipse home and installed the magwell and grips I previously had put on my Raptor I returned the Raptor to stock configuration.
I started to miss the way the Raptor looked with the originalal grips. The lineman was also losing sleep over me removing the original grips. At any rate here is my new Eclipse 10 mm and my Raptor.

The Raptor grips are great, just something about them that won't allow you to take them off!

I have to agree with ya Brew. Even though the other grips looked good on it. It never set easy with me. I am anxious to get my 10 mm ammunition from freedom so I can post a range report with the Eclipse. I have never fired a ten before looking forward to it.

One thing I learned about the 10mm Auto was that sometimes the slightest change in "normalcy" resulted in vertical stringing.

My Bren Ten shot golf balls at 80 yards with the 200 grain truncated cone bullets. My Delta Elite made right-slanting egg-shaped groups. The 165 and 185 grain profiles were an abject waste of time, but the 175 grain factory SilverTips were spot on.

Then I fired the exact same 200 linotype bullet in my SW 4013 in .40 SW. Big, raged hole cloverleaves.

When it comes to .401 bullets, I was clueless.

It looks great Tom, too bad they made you endure that ridiculous waiting period.

Tom, the mag well and grips turned out very nice and of course love the Raptor grips. I like some others have never had the chance to fire a 10mm and for my bank account sakes I hope I don't enjoy your range report, the want list is already pretty long.

I guess the waiting is better than being told no you cannot have it. I just wish I could order the new models if I wanted to CA gun laws are most asinine laws I know about.
