    Okay gentlemen....I've decided to put my Colt Delta Elite 10mm up on the block.

    Back story: I bought this from a family friend who doesn't shoot and is not a gun enthusiast...he inherited it from his late father-in-law and had no use for it. Sooooo, I got it to scratch the 10mm itch.

    Why selling? I already have a Springfield 1911a1 Loaded in .40s&w that I am sending to Nighthawk for some love and to install a 10mm barrel so I have a 2-in-1 gun for competition and woods carry.

    This Delta Elite is stock and hardly shot! The previous owner was not sure how much his father-in-law shot it, but when I got it I can tell you the feed ramp, barrel, slide internals, etc. looked almost brand new! I only put about 100 rounds through it to function test it. Ran PERFECT and was darn accurate! So I'd say based on the lack of wear, maybe no more than 300-400 rounds through it??

    Full disclosure: There is a faint idiot scratch (picture attached) and a small scratch on the right front (it may buff out, it's not very deep). Otherwise, no other marks....

    Package will come with:

    - Colt Delta Elite (blued)
    - the bone/off-white colored NHC grips currently installed
    - the Original rubber wraparound grip with DE emblem
    - 2 original Colt 10mm magazines
    - a Wilson Beavertail Grip Safety (new in wrapper) I bought that I was going to install.
    - original Colt DE box and papers including original 1 year service card (no longer valid) and a congratulatory ownership letter from then CEO Richard Gamble

    Asking $1,150 shipped (I've seen them on GB for $1250 - $1800).

    REDUCED: $1,050 shipped.....

    Also open to trades....revo's and semi-auto's....all I can say is "no thank you", LOL.

    I am salivating heavily!!!! Have a 2nd edition in stainless...and I love it, but I would have to heartily with 41 Charlie....there is simply something about a Delta in Blue.

    Thanks guys! I hate to let her go...but since I'm already having some TLC done to my Springer .40, NHC said they can install a ramped 10mm barrel for me giving me a 2-in-1 option...utilitarian is kind of a fault of mine! LOL.

    I almost thought about putting a 10mm ramped barrel in the DE...but didn't have the heart to cut into a classic...LOL.

    If anyone thinks my pricing is on the high side, PLEASE let me know! I priced it where I THOUGHT it should be....
