Who makes the best 10mm under 999.00

That is not a Glock. With first choice being a DA/SA second choice being a 1911 style. It needs to be able to handle heavy loads,

Colt Delta Elite.....

Second choice: S&W 610

Glock would be on my list, but you said no Glocks....

My vote is for a stock Delta Elite or a Kimber Stainless Target II. You should be able to find either for under $999. Most S&W 10XX should be easy to do for that price also. Maybe not a 1046 due to them being rare.

I agree with tx4guns.

While I hesitate to claim it's "best" ("best" for what? for whom?), my 95% S&W 1076 with night sights and 6 mags cost me $350 last summer. I put in new recoil and firing pin springs (another $15 or so), and I couldn't be happier with it.

It's a tank. I've never fired anything but Double Tap ammo through it. It's accurate. It's DA/SA. Sounds like just what you're looking for.

10mm semiauto choice

How about Dan Wesson? Their 1911's are very well fitted and finished. I have a 10mm PM7 (5" with adjustable sights) on layaway and can't wait to get my hands on it. I already have a DW Cmdr. Bobtail (CBOB) in .45 ACP that I'm quite pleased with.

I'm thinking about a Dan Wesson or a Kimber. I need one with real good chamber support. I don't hot rod all guns but some loads are very accurate at the top end like the 357 SIG,

You can't go wrong with either. DW's probably have a better reputation for reliability. I've never shot one. My Kimber is dead-eye accurate. I shoot beer cans at 50 yards with it pretty consistantly. I might try hog hunting with it next time I go out.

It's not just accurate

you have a good eye as well. Try beer cans they are harder to hit if you drink them empty first ,

For DA/SA, sounds like you're looking for a S&W 1000-series pistol. For stiff loads, I'd recommend a full-size 1006.

For the 1911 alternative, consider building a custom 1911? If your looking for performance and velocity, why not build a longslide 1911 10mm using Caspian Arms slide and frame?
