    Do you know of anybody that would make a set of wooden grip panels with the Delta medallions? My brand new SS Delta Elite is coming and I can't abide by the rubber grips, but would dig a set of wooden grips with the Delta medallions.

    Looks like it's been dehorned, glass bead blasted, the ejection port has been lowered and flared, new hammer...

    Really quality piece you got there. Looks like Novak did the work, judging by their mark on the front.

    That is great!! Put a flat mainspring and a magwell, and that is EXACTLY what Id want to do with a Delta Elite.

    The only problem I see with those is trying to find a backstop. Maybe layers of hardened 3/4" steel plate?

    Congrats on a great looking Delta. Ismerelda can make the grips for you. I SO want a Delta.
