I am getting re-interested in the Bren Ten and the Peregrine Falcon. Anyone have pics and or stories??? Are they worth looking for?

They usually go for $1500 and parts can break. It is collectors pistol.

Of all the auto pistols I have ever shot, the feel of it in my hand is second only to the 1911. It's a bit larger than a 1911, but is slim and trim in feel compared to a Glock 20. The sights jump up at you.

If it were made again I'd buy it. Maybe several. HKs and Glocks just don't feel right and feel downright awful in my hand when a Bren Ten or good 1911 is handy.

The EAA clone is a joke, even at $300, but some people will settle for it.

Sonny had one in the early years, back when the 100mm was still the real deal, before they reduced the round like it is today.

Fixed it for ya, that 100mm one was way too big for Sonny, (it wouldn't even fit in the trunk of his Ferrari)......

The black Daytona Spider was actually a frankencar with Corvette power plant, don't know about the Testarossa?

The Testarossa was for real. The Spyder did use a Corvette chassis, don't know about the motor.
How about Sonny's backup piece, Detonics wasn't it?

Thanks I guess I had a happy finger, 100mm would be pretty wicked.

About a year and a half ago I finally found a new thumb safety (the old one cracked and fell off in 1992), but I never seem to have the time to fit it to the pistol. Once I put it back together I will take a few pictures. Yahoo deleted the email from the only parts guy I knew of so it better not break anymore.

Ohh, and the Peregrine Falcon was never made. I think it was just a way for that Voit guy to get investors to put up money. I used to have a catalog around, but I don't know what happened to it.

One of the most overated handguns in history

ColtM4: How is that so? Have you fired one and held it in your hands. At the time it was the most innovative gun to be introduced in many years. The company Dornus & Dixon fell upon some back luck, and could not recover. Back then the 10mm round was even more powerful than todays 10mm Auto.

Don't care much for the looks of the Bren but wrt a 10mm collection, it would be a sweet collectors piece.

I would just about KILL for a SIG in 10mm ... but they've refused repeatedly

I have one, they shoot sweet, but I only shoot real mild 10mm ammo(actually very mild 45ACP pressures and velocities) thru mine because these guns are not really that strong in taking the incessant pound of full-house 10mm ammo. If I break something, most likely I will be unable to find another replacement part or it will be super expensive.

I had the opportunity to shoot an S&W 1076 awhile back.

The FBI was having their range day, and invited us out. I spent the day shooting with them, and brought some "fun stuff" from our Armory. One of the retired agents that came out to qualify (I guess that is a requirement for them) was shooting his 1076 and let me fire a couple of magzines.

That was a nice shooting Smith, and I generally don't like Smith autos, even though I had to carry one for a couple of years (still own it, though). Recoil was stiffer than my .40 SIG, but the trigger was NICE and it pointed well and handled fine. I wouldn't mind having one of those.

It's still the real deal in my Glock 20 , for backup on Hogs, I load 200gr FMJ's to maximum. The Glock has held up very well ....

The Glocks can handle the original full/high powered 10mm Auto. I spoke with a Glock rep and he said that the 10mm Glocks were developed from the ground up with that round in mind. That is why the Glock 10mm auto won't interchange some parts with their 9mm/45ACP/40S&W cousins even thought they look about the same, but they're not.
