    One big plus with the R.I., it's only 60% the cost of the Delta!

    It has a ramped barrel. So it should be better for full power loads than the Delta Elite.

    I would take the RI over a DE. My early DE was junk.

    I just emailed my dealer.
    Picking up a 1066 tomorrow might have the 10 family grow even more this weekend.

    As ALWAYSSHOOTIN says, it's great just to see another 10 on the market. A few years ago all of the 10mm naysayers would argue repeatedly that the 10mm was dying a slow death. These days you can clearly see that it has picked back up. So many new people constantly posting "I just got a G20 or G29". Hell, I can't even keep track of who has 10mms on GT anymore... 5 yrs ago you pretty much knew who the 10mm fanatics were.

    As ammo prices increase for all of the service calibers (well, all calibers) the extra price for 10mm doesn't look so bad, especially with boutique manufacturers putting quality, premium defense ammo out at great prices. Bring on the RI and more boutique ammo manufactures, soon we all might get what we want... an abundance of platform choices across the board from the other big names.

    with a ramped, bull barrel , if the steel is good enough. you should be able to shoot big boy loads for a while ----looks very interesting but need to see a review or 2.
    Let us hope some other makers will jump to the 10 mm.
