What a dream.

Yes I do understand the FBI has a few of those.

Someone makes some civilian semiauto versions  also.  One guy posted a pic of his on some other forum once.

Reinz.  Thanks for the info, also.  A 10 may be in my future, now that ammo is available.    ;)

The book involving the MP 10 was "Rainbow Six" by the inimitable Tom Clancy.

Yep!  It's all about knowing or the feeling for doing the passing!    ;D

Not all Blued Deltas had the potential for cracks.  It was just the early ones with  a small amount of space between the slide stop hole and frame.  

The SS came along after they fixed the problem, so that way you know you have no worries.

John said he had a chance at an old model (blued) so it may have fit in the cracked catagory, then again, who knows.

I don't know if it was one of the ones with the potential to crack, but lady luck doesn't always smile on me.  All to frequently its Murphy.  ;D
  Also I'm not big on blued gun, I prefer stainless. My Colt Gold Cup was blued when I got it and I had it hard chromed after a week of ownership.

I'm with you John.  

It also seems that since the 70's, the art of blueing lost something.  They just do not take the time in the prep work to polish the gun enough or something.  
I've got old guns where you can see yourself in the bluing.

It's just not that way anymore.

And of course the maintenance factor is Big plus with SS, as well as knock around - not having to baby them as much.

Reinz is right. †I just got out my old snub nose .38, factory blued, and can see my reflection. †I knew it was shiny, but had never tried that; amazing. My, how we learn stuff.
