Fans of the 10 mm cartridge have had to look far and wide for a long-slide 1911-style gun chambered in the powerful cartridge. Now, with the introduction of the Ed Brown LS10 long-slide 10 mm 1911, shooters looking for an accurate pistol in the powerhouse chambering can cease their search.

The Ed Brown LS10 is designed from the ground up for long-range target shooting and hunting with a long-slide handgun that incorporates a 6-inch barrel, perfect for taking advantage of the enhanced performance characteristics of the 10 mm round. In addition to the increased velocity offered by the lengthened barrel, the longer slide also provides shooters with an increased sight radius, ensuring more accurate shooting.

To take advantage of this tack-driving accuracy, the pistol can be had with an adjustable rear sight. For those looking to take advantage of more modern micro red-dot sights, Ed Brown will also sell a model that features a milled slide that comes filled with a Trijicon RMR reflex optic, ensuring that shooters can get on target quickly and easily with a 3.25-MOA red dot.

When equipped with an RMR, the Ed Brown LS10 will also feature back-up iron sights from Trijicon. These tall irons are designed for nighttime and low-light use and have enough clearance to allow shooters to use the optics through the window of the RMR optic.

The LS10 1911 measures 9.75 inches in overall length, with a height of 6.25 inches. The total weight of the gun, including an empty magazine, is 43 ounces. The slide and frame are constructed from stainless steel, and the gun is finished in Ed Brown's black Gen4 finish. The total magazine capacity of the pistol is nine rounds.

The pistol also features 25 lines-per-inch checkering on the front strap and mainspring housing of the frame, ensuring that shooters have a firm gripping surface on the pistol that withstands the recoil of the powerful 10 mm round. The slide features traditional forward-facing cocking serrations located on the rear of the slide. The pistol also includes a French border, serrated slide top and a flush-fit barrel.

The suggested retail price on the Ed Brown LS10 1911 in 10 mm is $3,995.
