Detailed Review

The Colt Delta Elite is a highly reliable and accurate pistol that has been used by law enforcement, military, and civilians alike since its introduction in 1987. This pistol is a modern version of the classic 1911 design that has been upgraded to offer better performance and enhanced features.

One of the key aspects that sets the Colt Delta Elite apart from other 1911 pistols is its chambering. The pistol is chambered for the 10mm Auto cartridge, which is a powerful round that offers excellent stopping power and penetration. This makes it an ideal choice for self-defense, hunting, and even target shooting.

The Colt Delta Elite features a solid stainless steel construction that gives it a sleek and sturdy appearance. The pistol has a 5-inch barrel length and an overall length of 8.5 inches. Its weight is approximately 38 ounces, which makes it slightly heavier than some other 1911 models, but still manageable for most users.

The pistol also features a number of enhanced features that make it easier to use and more comfortable to shoot. For example, it has a beavertail grip safety that helps to reduce recoil and mitigate the effects of muzzle rise. It also has an extended thumb safety that makes it easier to engage and disengage without changing your grip.

The Colt Delta Elite has a standard capacity of 8+1 rounds, although some models may have a higher capacity depending on the user’s needs. The pistol also has adjustable sights that can be easily adjusted for windage and elevation, which makes it easier to hit your target at varying distances.

In addition to these features, the Colt Delta Elite also comes with a number of optional upgrades that users can choose from. For example, you can add a Picatinny rail to attach accessories such as lights or lasers. You can also choose from different grips, finishes, and other customizations to suit your individual preferences.

Overall, the Colt Delta Elite is an excellent choice for those who want a powerful and reliable 1911 pistol that can be used for a variety of purposes. Whether you are looking for a self-defense weapon or a hunting gun, this pistol is sure to meet your needs.

Received product timely. Discovered afterwards 2 mags were supposed to be included. When I e-mailed about it, never even received a response. Poor customer service. I suppose you want me to shop elsewhere

I have wanted a Delta for years. Three of my friends have owned them, and I was always a bit envious. Well, I'm gad I held out, because the new generation Delta features are outstanding. One thing I wish they didn't change is the original, first generatio

Colt 10mm Delte Elite. It's a COLT not much more to say fit and finish are as expected. Great gun Buds has the best price on this item currently. Shipped fast and provided everything a customer would need information wise on the transaction.
