November 12, 2015 – Just got this quick note from Bob Owens, Editor @bearingarmscom. Bob took an M10X™ Elite to the Rifleman 1 class @Valor Ridge last weekend. Take a look a his experience in his post http://buff.ly/1krTFfN. A full review is coming shortly.
October 31, 2015 – Military Arms Channel @mac_arms Tweeted “militaryarmsThe new @mmindustries M10X is a very interesting all US made rifle. It takes proven designs and merges them into a very shootable package. The best part is that it shoots 7.62×39 and uses AK mags.” His full review will be out shortly.
October 15, 2015 – Bearing Arms received the new M10X™ Elite for a full review. After initial rounds tweeted “Great gun!” @bob_ owens @mmindsutries. Iraqveteran8888 is in process of doing complete testing and evaluation of the M10X™ Elite. Here are some shares from their work to date via Instagram.
October 11, 2015 “@chad_iv8888–These shots were taken at 200 yards on a @shoot_steel Groundhog target, prone position with a hasty rest with the @mmindustries M10X setup with a @vortexoptics 1-4x24mm PST, suppressed with my @advanced_armament SDN-6 protected by a @cole_tac HTP suppressor sleeve. Very promising results indeed with bulk steel cased HP ammo. I’ve never been an AK guy at heart, but I can say that this rifle is becoming one of my favorites in the “Not and AR” and “Not and AK” realm.” October 11, 2015 “@chad_iv8888The @mmindustries M10X rifle comes standard with a 14x1LH thread pitch mainly due to the abundance of US made 922R compliant muzzle brakes the company had in stock at the start of production. I am assured that M+M will be using the more standard 5/8x24RH barrel threading in future production runs, but I just couldn’t wait, lol. Our machinist cut, crowned and threaded the barrel for me last week and in his opinion, the M10X barrel is one of the most consistent factory barrels that he has ever seen. Very promising indeed. I’ll be out at the farm getting my rifle zeroed and post the initial results. Stay tuned.”
October 10, 2015 “@chad_iv8888@iv8888gunsmithray doing a bit of customization on one of the @mmindustries M10X Elite rifles we have in for review. We are setting this rifle up for use with my @advanced_armament SDN-6. The rifle comes setup with a five position adjustable gas system. This rig may indeed be the ideal 7.62×39 delivery system, since most well know that AK suppression is a fairly difficult task. Stay tuned, we will have much more to come on this very impressive platform.”
