    So, after much debate and waiting, I finally had the time and money to go buy myself an early Christmas present: a new-in-box Colt Delta Elite. I have been lusting after this gun since I first saw it. I know some aren't the biggest fans, but to me, a new, stainless, Colt 1911 chambered in 10mm is pretty damn awesome. I'm not a fan of buying used guns unless it is no longer produced. I have been looking for a new Delta for a while, but they are only released in batches, and hard to find. So, when I walked into my local gun shop and saw this one sitting there (next to a perfect used one), I knew I had to have it. I quickly pushed the local used S&W 1076 out of my mind, and went for the Delta. Here it is:

  3. How did the other one look, Carrier? No takedown scratch? Any wear scratches on the barrel hood?

    Thanks! Damn! I meant to take pictures of the used one up there for you. I got excited and forgot. If you're still interested in it, I'll go take some pics Saturday. It's only a mile or two from my house, and I might go shoot at their new indoor range. It looks perfect, though. I didn't see if the left side has the so-called "idiot scratch", but I don't think so.

    By the way, I got a pretty good deal on it. I talked them down to $917 (or something like that, $1,000 out the door) from $975. I haven't seen a new one that cheap ANYWHERE. I was happy with that. I think the lowest I've seen was $925 on the internet, so that's fine with me. I'll be shooting it extensively this weekend, so I'll have a detailed report on it.

  5. Thanks Bro. Don't go out of your way, I will let you know when and if I am ready. I was wondering if they would be willing to talk on price. I mean now that the new one is gone, if they would be interested in coming down to $900 or so on the used one. An idiot scratch would most likely be a deal killer for me though.

    I have one on order (I too have been lusting over a stainless 1911 Delta Elite -- I actually owned an early blued model in the late 80s but sold it... dumb, dumb, dumb :brickwall: ) but have not been thinking about it lately... until now!

    They are sexy aren't they?
  7. Yep. :cool:

    Have you selected a choice round of ammo for its maiden voyage? Something worthy, I presume.

    Wow, what a piece of ARTWORK....extremely crisp and handsome. Go buy the used one and shoot that. Save this one for the safe. $

    ( I's only money..)


    have fun..

    You will notice much more recoil on this puppy. But they are very accurate.

    Be well, Bob
