    I Just Bought My First 10MM

    I don't feel real happy.

    I have been sitting on a big bore frame for over a year. Not being able to buy a upper for it at a decent price,
    I bit the bullet (no pun, I assure you), and paid DEARLY for a 10mm G40 MOS upper, fully assembled, new.

    There was two G41 uppers, NON-MOS, for MORE money than I paid for the new 10mm MOS slide. This dang pistol will have
    cost me $780, and NON-matching serial numbers.

    Dang, I will NEVER do that again. I paid dearly for this lesson.

    I wanted a grey frame G41 MOS. I could not find one so I bought a frame. Come to find out,
    I get the frame which came with the case. The case told the story since it matched the frame serial
    number. It came from the very gun I was wanting, a grey frame G41 MOS.

    So, now, I'm all in at 780 for a NON-matching serial number G40 MOS grey frame.

    Word to the wise. Do NOT do what I did. It will cost you.

    Add: One good thing from this, it will now match a grey tornado build AR I did. I like that it's a 10mm to go along with my grey AR.....it will look very nice together....

    Question:

    Will G21 mags fit 10mm ammo? Or, can I use G21 mags for 10 mm ammo, or am I gonna have to invest in new mags now??? Along with 10mm ammo.....

    Not positive but it may be nothing more than a follower change.

    I called the vendor that sold the upper. He has the (3) mags from the parted G41 MOS and the case. He's sold me the three mag for $50 bucks.

    He's sending the upper and three mags in the box. I had emailed him; asked him to package to upper so it would not get hit and cause rail damage/crack
    during shipment.

    They are different. I do have a lot of the G21 mags. But, now, I will have G20 (3) mags for it and will pick up a couple more. Five is all I think I would need.

    I won't be shooting much 10mm. To expensive for my blood. I will pick up a G20 in the future and it will have (3) more too. So, I should be fine with (8) for both.

    I bought Glock made magazines from Midway and Botach.
    Botach ships for free and gives a 10% discount with a 3 magazine purchase.

    I have bought (3) new G20 mags that was with the parted G40 MOS, and plan to get several more in a few weeks. I have my sights set on a G20C now. You don't hardly ever see those and it needs to be in my collection.

    This thing is a safe queen, it looks as if it has never been fired. It still has the copper grease in the rail. It absolutely looks new. I must have it since I'm now into
    10mm. I need a G20 g4 as well. That will have (3) mags in it. This 20C only comes with one mag. I'm the high bidder now. I'll see if I win it. Still has five
    days on the auction.

    I have had good luck with Armscor 10mm ammo. My LGS usually has it for $19.99/50. This place has it for $299.80/1000, which does not seem too bad, but if you reload, it might not be too good. YMMV.
