|I got a Million of 'em!|
I handled the CMMG 10 at a local gun store, the one who clued me in to them coming a month or so ago. I also have the longer barrel 9mm Guard.
The 10mm was made to the same standards and looked good. I have to get one.
Got it last night. Super impressed. And I really like the cerakote "sniper gray" color I picked. Ordered a Trijicon MRO with Trijicon absolute co-witness (semi quick release) mount. Tested correct height with my extra Vortex SPARC.
The "brace" seems very nice. I already picked up 3 more mags and have 500 rounds of Fiocci FMJ arriving tonight.
I will replace the trigger, which is mil-spec with a Geisselle ACT as I have in my Sig M400. Being picky, there a few slightly discolored areas of the finish if you look for them (I did). Range time here I come!
Very nice! Congrats!

To me, 10mm is about the only pistol caliber that makes sense as a carbine chambering
This will be available only in pistol form, or will it be available as a rifle as well?
My sentiments exactly. The Banshees are also available from CMMG as an SBR. I will probably get a can for mine, and maybe convert it to SBR.
I was looking at one in 5.7. They're really nicely made but at the price, they should be.
What's the weight of the buffer which comes with the Banshee?
There are some very hot 10mm loads out there. DoubleTap offers loads which produce in excess of 700 foot-pounds out of a Glock G20. Take the same 165 grain Gold Dot and shoot it out of an 8" barrel and you would have these projectiles turning themselves inside out.
I ask about the buffer weight because of the high performance 10mm loads. You know what would probably work very well with these 10mm err "pistols"? The Vltor A5 system. Lots of latitude on buffer weight, as well as a a rifle-length action spring in a receiver extension only slightly longer than the standard carbine receiver extension. Very tunable, very smooth. I have three ARs which use the A5 system.
There's "10mm", which is equivalent to .40 S&W loadings, and then there's 10mm- loadings in the DT and Underwood range. Two different animals.
Also, I wonder how well the hammer pin will hold up to the pounding of 10mm.
A 16" 10mm carbine would make a hellacious house gun. Less blast than a 5.56 but still packing a real whallop.This message has been edited. Last edited by: parabellum,

the way it's spelled
There is a weight kit available from CMMG to tune the gun. I believe it was originally offered to tune the guns for suppressor use, but is offered for the 10mm for the variety of loadings.
Any idea if the Kriss mags will fit?
Please post a range report! I have been eyeballing this 10mm for a while now. Looking at the dark bronze color. It is next on my list!
Sigs P-220, P-226 9mm, & P-230SL (CCW)
Thanks for the support. Getting and will install the MRO tonight. Hope to go shooting soon. I'd prefer to go to the outdoor range my brother belongs to, but he's in New Zealand for another 10 days... Might have to use the 50m range at NRA HQ.
Parabellum: It comes with 2 buffers, the one installed is considered is considered "medium" and will handle all the mid-range loadings, up into the shallow end of hot. Most folks stick with this one. It also comes with a "light" buffer to handle the low-powered options as in a lot of bulk ammo. I doubt I'll ever use it. I picked up Fiocchi rated at 1250 fps so it is in the medium category. Lastly, available for separate purchase (~$60) is a heavy buffer for shooting the truly hot loads and running suppressed. I will likely have to pick one up eventually.
The Banshee has put tingle in my innards ever since their introduction. I have been picking up and squirreling away 10mm brass for 3-4 years. I may do my own build once I find the receivers I like...but the 9mm is so much less expensive right now with all the PCC guns out there. 'merica, land of the free and all kinda cool toys
This is the range of street prices.
I have the Banshee in 5.7. Lots of fun and frankly impressive. The 10mm is very interesting given how much I like the 5.7 banshee. Rotating bolt, good quality. I have no 10mm in stock or arms in 10mm and don’t need another caliber...but interesting
