A 10 from Ned
When my name popped up on Ned Christiansen's list a few years back I decided he was just the kind of quirky guy to build be a 10mm longslide. After messing with a plethora of 10mm pistols over the years, I really came to appreciate the longslide in this caliber for the long sight radius and enhanced reliability. A major benefit to building a 6" is the ability to use longslide springs, which are as long as buggy whips and will never go flat. This gun was concieved as a "Combat-Hunter Longslide" with lo-profile adjustables and Ned's Conamyd treatment everywhere. Ned does awesome machining and fitting. This is one of the finest guns I own. It is ridiculously accurate (Sheumann AET barrel). I opted to use Paul Liebenberg's ISS sights for ease of front sight replacement-I have a gold bead, fiber optic and plain black post that can be switched out depending on range conditions. I look forward to doing more hunting with this guns. Its favorite load is the Doubletap 155 grain XPB. Not for sale at any price!!!
