    'Tis the season and 'tis the reason I pulled my order. I like Armscor and they will work these bugs out. And as soon as they get it straightened out, to where I don't have to experiment on my own, with trial and error and waste my time, as well as my money, on ammo and springs and whatnot, which is their job to do in the first place, then I'll order another one. :cool:

    Feed ramp and springs usually and rightfully fall on the shooter. RIA should have put a 20lb minimum in there like others and 16 is still way light. I have 22lb springs in all mine and they shoot it all just fine.

    If someone buys it with intentions of turning it into something it isn't bad move. Buy the one that IS THAT from jump. The cost is going to be about the same.

    How 'bout you do your thing and I'll do mine. I customize most of my guns to MY liking.

    I did/done already have but I don't complain about those things. I don't buy a lower end model and then complain about changing things to get it there. It's like buying a Delta Elite knowing the barrel needs changed to run strong 10mm in it then complaining. Just get the one with the good barrel out of the box. Just my .003.

    I want you to try and point out where I've "complained" about anything. Your "point", if that's what you are attempting to make, is worth about .003. So, you're saying that taking a cheap 1911, like a RIA, SA GI/Mil-Spec, etc., and building them up/customizing, whatever you want to call is "complaining"? :rofl:You got a LOT to learn and a LOOOONG way to go.

    I did not see any complaining from you Joe. I completely understand where you are coming from. :thumbsup:

    I did start filing down the edge on the barrel, just enough to knock down the sharp corner. This will make for a smother loading.:supergrin:

    Cool deal. Can't wait to hear how it shoots with some hot loads. :cool:

    It is if you are talking about the build yes. I think you are the same one talking about having 2k in parts to make it run right. I highly doubt it would take that much but money better spent if a 1911 10mm is what you want with a build that runs right can be had for $1000. You cancelled though right? Adding lights, accs and stuff no, that's normal user stuff.

    Don't think I have much to learn about 10mm's. Have been messing with them a long while now and understand the firearms and round itself.

    EAA Hunter Lonslide, S&W 1006, EAA Elite Match and Dan Wesson Razorback.

    You obviously haven't read a single word I've written. Your entire post is made up of jibberish and really makes you look quite foolish. Maybe you should quit while you're behind. :upeyes: BTW, that Razorback might make for a decent base gun build. The others...while 10mm's, aren't 1911's. So why drag them into this thread? I own a G20 and G29. Does that have anything to do with this thread? :dunno:

    It's like a comedy of errors here.....

    If someone told me to run a 14lb spring in a 10mm I would immediately know they are absolutely clueless. Kinda scary that RIA is giving out this advice.

    Can't argue with that statement and did not have enough experience with the 1911 10mm to argue with him on what # spring was needed, I just knew that the spring it came with was not enough.

    This is my first 1911 10mm, and my third 10mml, the other two are S&W 1006. So I'm still learning about the 1911 10mm. The 1006 is a tank and can handle HOT loads and never needed tweaking, both ran 100% out the box!

    So, the consensus I am seeing is that it should be around 20lbs spring minimum? If so, I'll buy a heavier spring.

    You can get away with ~18lb, but I' probably start with 20lb and go up from there, maybe see where your at each increment. Personally if it were me, I'd be looking to play with mainsprings and throw in that flat EGW FPS stop as well.

    If it were me, to save a bit of shipping costs, I'd buy a 20, 21, & 23#
    The Delta Elite runs a 23#, the bull barrel is not going to slow
    the slide much.
    If you had a squared firing pin stop you could
    lower the spring pressure a few pounds. However the squared
    fps placed a bit more wear on the hammer & pin. I prefer to
    tune with springs for the load at hand.

    Good ideal! I'll buy the 3 springs and see which one works with my loads. Thanks for the help!

    I'll look into the EGW FPS also, thanks for the advice!

    I know once I get the right spring down it will run 100%.
