Magnum 10: Shooting the Magnum Research G Model 10mm 1911

by Frank Melloni

Handgun shooters have quested after a cartridge that could deliver .357 Magnum ballistics in a semi-auto, pretty much since the day the round was invented. The answer came in 1983 in the form of the 10mm Auto, developed by none other than Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper of Gunsite fame. While the round delivered everything it was supposed to, initial pistol offerings just weren’t up to hosting it. Magnum Research has an answer for that with its G Model 1911.

Magnum Research knows a thing or two about recoil as well as how to tame it. So, it was only a matter of time until it threw its 10mm hat into the ring. That hat looks strangely like a new G Model 1911.
