10mm Fans Rejoice: Dan Wesson’s Razorback Will Return in 2012

Since the original 10mm Auto pistol, the Bren Ten, was a CZ-patterned pistol, it makes sense for Dan Wesson, a CZ partner, to bring back a 10mm handgun.  And since it’s the Year of the 1911, well, you know what platform the returning Razorback has to be.

Officially named the RZ-10, the Razorback is a full-size, 5-inch, 8+1 10mm 1911.  It weighs 2.4 pounds (38.4 ounces) and has a stainless steel slide and frame.  The flat sides of the gun have been lightly polished, and the rest remains matte, sandblasted, and grey.  The grips are diamond-checkered cocobolo.  And it has fixed Novak sights.

Dan Wesson’s amazing firearms aren’t inexpensive, but in the top-shelf 1911 world, it could be worse.  These returning diamondbacks will have an MSRP of $1350, meaning real-world pricing of a little over $1000.

We expect an official launch at the next SHOT Show.  Dan Wesson said that this will be a limited run, but who knows.  This might not be the last return of the Razorback; the 10mm cartridge seems to be getting more and more popular every day.
