It was a cold day here in Maine and temps are dropping fast, we'll be well below zero with wind chills for the next couple of days and everyone is layered up with their heaviest coats and flannel lined pants. I had to go to the "city" today and run some errands and decided that it's a good time...
About 5 months ago, I purchased this Colt Delta Gold Cup with thoughts that it would stay with me for the foreseeable future. Things change and I have decided to let it go to a new home, hopefully one of the Addicts. According to the Colt Registry, this is a 1989 model. Since purchasing, I...
22 years ago when I graduated High School, I received this King Ranch lock blade as a graduation gift. I have absolutely loved it. The feel of the bone handle, the weight of the knife itself, I have always loved to carry lock blades, and I particularly love carrying knives that the blade and...
A couple of weeks ago, I started a thread in which I asked for input regarding a “custom” Delta Elite being auctioned on GB since I was looking for a 10mm 1911 and have always liked the Deltas. I received good information from those of you who participated, and I thank you.
Fast forward to this...
I have recently begun my search for a 10mm in the 1911 platform. I have a Sig P220 and B&T APC10, but have been wanting a 1911 10mm. I have been looking for a DW Vbob or Cbob in 10mm, but since they aren’t in current production, are rare as hens teeth.
Now for my current dilemma. I have...
Curious if stainless can be nitrided/melonited? I had a custom delta that I sold because someone wanted it way more than I and it allowed me to pay for my Yost, but picked up a new one today (the special combat carry from last week fell through so...) anyway was curious if you can apply this...
I was hanging out at my LGS and they were trying their hardest to enable me and pulled this out of the consignment case. 1987 model first year of production excellent shape. They do not know the actual round count but looks to be very low by the condition of the barrel. Has box and papers (I...
Picked up the new addition from my FFL yesterday, a 1991 Colt Delta that had been worked on by Wilson in '93. Love older guns that were tricked out back in the day. Spent this snowy morning watching the forum while taking it apart and cleaning it up, the gun is in great shape for the age, has...

Anyone suggest a "drop-in" beavertail grip safety for a 1990 mfg date SERIES 80 Colt Delta Elite? I believe it's a .250" radius. I saw Ed Brown makes one for Colt's....anyone else y'all can suggest?
Also looking for a decent ignition set....C&S, Harrison, EGW seem to be the front runners....
I’m looking to purchase a few new Colts. I’m not looking to pay full blown retail plus some. I am willing to pay fair market value. Or possibly trade.
Here’s a few of the models I’m looking for. I may be interested in others. Just let me know what you have.
1.) Colt Delta Elite
Due to changes in my current situation I have decided to thin my herd
Colt Delta Elite with custom work by both Business End Custom and Rogers Precision
Excellent condition with a few brass kisses on slide
I'll post the build sheet with the photos
Take me home price $2900
So I have decided to keep the BEC Delta Elite

Here is what Chuck did on the pistol
The pistol has minor holster wear mainly on the underside of the slide from holstering
Asking $2150 shipped

1987 first year production. It does have the slide stop window modification. Really want an addict to have this.
This pistol has an extra DE slide with a Barsto Match barrel and bushing in .40 S & W. The forty barrel can be converted to 10mm if desired.
Gun is reliable in both calibers with...
