It is a difficult line to walk if you are a manufacturer, but some companies do it really well and this includes Springfield Armory and their newer offering of the Ronin 1911.

Some of the high points of the Ronin 1911 now chambered in 10mm Auto from Springfield Armory are that it boasts a forged slide and frame for unparalleled strength, and features a beautiful hot salt bluing treatment for a near mirror finish. All at an MSRP of $849. Springfield Armory further brags about this new chambering in the Ronin through their Press Release statement below:

The Ronin 1911 provides shooters with a pistol that combines classic styling with modern features, the result of thoroughly modern precision manufacturing mixed with a traditional approach to quality and performance. Configured as a full-size 5″ gun, the 8+1 Ronin in 10mm features a forged steel slide and frame as well as a hammer-forged barrel for unparalleled durability and strength — ideal for a pistol harnessing the impressive power of the ever-popular 10mm cartridge.
