    Has anyone seen the new Armscor 9mm/.22TCM? Apparently, they necked down a 9mm to .22 and it pushes a 40gr. bullet over 2.000fps. The pistol looks like a Charles Daly M-5 Commander. A lot of velocity and little recoil. It also comes with a standard 9mm barrel. I am curious to see and hear range reports on the proprietary round and to see if it has any valid future. There is a 1/6th page blurb on page 62 of the April issue of GUNS magazine, telling me that it is either really new or really silly. Anyone have any thoughts or experience? Kip.

    If you search the various 1911 forums you can find some more info. I'd say it looks more like a Phillipine Gov model since it's a full size :)

    The reviews on the TCM round I saw seemed positive, but I just don't know if it'll have lasting power.

    The staying power is exactly what worries me. As long as you had a set of dies the projectiles are easy to come by. It sure looks like fun, though.

    If it's priced reasonably, I'd definitely be interested in one of these.

    Looks like an interesting round. Think with DPX bullets is could be awesome. If you google it there is information on its developement. Spad
