And what makes you think that I haven't already? I have a 10mm barrel for my 40 cal but never thought about it for Bullseye. Kicks too much and brass is scarce. I can get 40 brass everywhere. Now, putting my 6" Super barrel in it would be fun..Hmmmm

I never knew it existed till I saw it in a LGS case.
Definitely a new departure for Remington...

I have never been a fan of Remington. I see you can pick one up for around 1100.00. I will probably pass. If I am feeling masochistic I can always shoot this "45" in the Reeves match. I call it the Reeves pistol from well, you know, your part of the world. Smile I guess it would even be legal for the 45 match. I am not into that much self punishment.

Greetings,

I have heard that the 10mm would make a good platform to convert to 38 Special. The case rim relief of the slide is a closer fit than the 38 Super.

Also, Kart makes 6" 38 Special barrels.

Hmmm, another Winter project...

Cheers,

Dave

It wouldn't work with a 38 special barrel. But, it could be made to work. The slide face on the 10/40 cal fits the .424 rim of the 10/40 case but won't take the rim of the .440 38 special. I know, I tried. However if you get out the lathe it should be easy to take the extra .016" off the rim. The extractor "should" still work and there is enough rim left to function in other pistols. I have not tried this procedure but have been thinking about it. I figure playing with some brass is easier then playing with the bolt face. YMMV
