IAI Javelina 10mm auto

Im totaly new here... And Im from another continent. I hope you`ll let me in. I just picked up an IAI Javelina Long Slide 10mm auto today. Brand new. Been collecting dust on a shelf for two decades.

Now, I can see that the finnish of the slide is a bit rough. Trigger a bit heavy, but in general I love the look of it. 7" barrel 1911 style...always loveable.

In general I would love to get some feedback on this pistol. Negative and positive feedback. And how to make it a winner. Im going to use it in competitions. Magnum 1 shooting we call it over here. The rest of my pistol competition shooting is made holding a 9mm Pardini GT9 6". Revolver, a Ruger GP100. I love Ruger...cant help it. Going to use a Ruger Super Redhawk 454 in Magnum 2.

Anyone wonder what a norwegian guy uses at the rifle range.....Well, I use my Suomi Lakerlander and my Sauer 200 STR for competition. Bouth in cal 6,5x55 scan. Great round even beyond 700m...... Hunting I use a 375 H&H Remington. Where I live its moose and pine. To hit the moose behind all that pine, I need something that counts. The 375 loaded with a 380 grs Rhino bullet is a winner. Tried 458 LOT too, but it didnt convince me. A messer upper at close range, totaly waste of meat if you shoot a moose frontal at close range. Not so good at like 300m either. The 375, I found it to be a good compromise of short and long range. Just a matter of bullet weight.

Sorry about all these words. I should have mentioned that beside guns, I like bullshit too....

Ha en jævlig fin dag......... (have one hell of a fine day).

I love the Javilina. I am mad no one offers a 7 in pistol today
in any of the popular calibers but definitely 10mm is the
best to take advantage of the power. Too bad the FBI wimped
out on the 10mm platform. There are a lot of photos and info of the Javelina at a forum dealing with 10mm pistols

The 10mm Auto Cartridge

and

10mm Talk Forums - AR15 Armory.com

In fact, I have an EAA Witness 10mm on order. Same power
level and effectiveness as a 357 magnum. WOW indeed.

45 acp is nice but are pea shooters compared to 10mm

Im feeling the same way. I dont understand why so few offer their pistols in this pretty amazing round. And even more, why no one makes a 7" pistol anymore....Ill post when Iv been able to test it properly at the range. I didnt make it to the range yesterday..... Just some reloading and test shooting in the snow.

AND, I have to ask those who says this pistol is crap. Have they ever tried one?? Iv been told that I should be happy if it recycled 3 times in a row. This one did so out of the box, dry as the Sahara desert.

I have only N340 and N310 powder right now. So I made 3 different loads for it. Using the 180grs Frontier bullet....6,4grs (max load in the Vihtavuori chart), 7,2grs and 7,7grs. The last load started to show some signs of pressure issues. Ill try them all in a chrono....

Ill be back..... hah, that phrase actually goes with the pistol...

PS: Anybody that knows how many 7" they made? Did anyone but AMT, IAI and Galena make 7" 1911`s??

That's wonderful that it cycles dry for now.

KEEP IT LUBRICATED! A friend found out the hard way.

Oh yes, I will. I just wanted to try. Cleaned and lubed it yesterday. I like the Oil #1. Hope it does the trick with this one too. Its a bit "light", but I hope it will work.

Any suggestions on finnish treatment would be nice. Its somewhat.....rough. And this pistol has been on a shelf since 1991. Should I replace the recoil spring?

I use full synthetic motor oil (Mobil 1); it remains fluid in cold weather and is much better for wear protection than any gun oil.

Hedning, you have to remember that the longslides took some re-engineering in order to run right, with regards to spring weights and other things. When you change the length, weight, and travel distance of the slide, that is always the case. AMT/IAI/Galena were apparently willing to attempt this with their version.

It is good to hear that yours runs properly--do not trade it away! The odds of you getting another one that works right are a little dicey, from what I saw years ago.

Ok I see.... And Im not going to trade it in. This might be the only one in Scandinavia. Perhaps all of Europe. And I cant say for sure that Im not going to encounter any trouble. Havent used it enough. I hope I can get a couple of hundred rounds through it on sunday. If it works fine all day long, Ill be very happy.

Ok 5 years late BUT.... I have a Javelina 10mm....Luuurve it
Tried dry silicon spray lube first, a waste of time. use a thick(like glue) lube now and it cycles with no problems
The gun is accurate and easy to shoot, the extra weight on the barrel holds it down nice. My buddy shoots 4th gen Glocks and spends a lot on aftermarket bits.
He was amazed at how well the Javelina handles right out of the box
I just want another..... matched pair.....drool....
