As a serious fan of 10mm – hey, I handgun hunt a lot – I’m pleased to see Devil Dog Arms coming out with a new 1911 chambered in one of my favorite hog calibers. Here’s the official release info from DDA:
The DDA 10mm 1911 is the perfect choice for the handgun hunter, the home defender, and the open carrier. And it will get everyone’s attention at the shooting range, too.
From the DDA 10mm’s five-inch competition-grade barrel, made of 416 stainless steel, to the adjustable rear sights, from the clean-breaking trigger to the very durable 4140 steel frame and slide, the DDA 10mm 1911 is all Devil Dog Arms – a high quality, extremely accurate 1911 that can take the worst and keep working.
“We had numerous requests to build a 10mm 1911 from our customers,” noted Cole Quarnberg, DDA’s Director of Marketing. “And they specifically asked for a 10mm that included upgraded sights and an adjustable trigger, as well as offering the option of a threaded barrel for a suppressor. We listened and built the new DDA 10mm 1911 accordingly.”
A handful of quick details. The gun ships with a pair of eight-round mags, a hard case, an owner’s manual, and a gun lock. If you want one with a threaded barrel – which I suggest if you’re hunting with it, so you can suppress it – you can get one. There’s also an option for an under-barrel accessory rail.
No, I haven’t shot one yet, but there’s one on the way. I’ve run other DDA 1911s and I’m looking forward to going after some hogs and maybe a few random coyotes with their new 10mm.
