Tisas 1911 D10 — A Series 70 1911 Chambered in 10mm

The 1911 platform handgun has been around for more than a century, and although the basics of its design remain the same, technology has provided some fantastic advances, like the ability to chamber 1911s in larger calibers. 1911s don’t have to be chambered in only 45 ACP anymore and the Tisas 1911 D10 is a fantastic example with its 10mm chambering and solid, Government-sized frame.

Tisas made the following statement about their 1911 D10:

Knoxville based Tisas, a premium supplier of 1911-style pistols, has entered the realm of magnum performance with the launch of their…D10 10mm. Tisas 10mm pistols incorporate features often seen only on high-end or custom pistols. A forged frame, slide and hammer-forged barrel, combined with the Tisas lifetime service plan makes the D10 one of the best 10mm values on the market.

The Tisas 1911 D10 has a Government size frame, meaning it’s full-size and has a five-inch barrel. Its larger size and overall weight help mitigate felt recoil and muzzle rise for improved control and accuracy. G10 target grips provide an aggressively textured surface for a firm grip while shooting and checkering at the front and back of the grip make it even better. The trigger guard is also undercut to facilitate a high hold on the pistol, which works well with the extended beavertail. Forward and rearward angled cocking serrations are located on the gun’s slide; if you intend to rack the slide from the front, take care to ensure you understand the technique and use safe practices.

Other features include a flared ejection port for better cycling, factory iron sights, and a serrated hammer. The Tisas 1911 D10 has a skeletonized trigger. It is a Series 70 1911 which will appeal to a lot of 1911 purists. Its frame has a brushed stainless finish while the slide is a contrasting flat black and the grips are multi-colored in shades of brown and black.
