LNIB Colt Delta Elite   Guns > Pistols > Colt Automatic Pistols (1911 & Var)

Dornaus & Dixon, the developer (along with consultant Jeff Cooper) and manufacturer of the Bren 10, the only gun chambered for the 10 mm Auto cartridge, ceased operations in 1986 and filed for bankruptcy. Colt Manufacturing Company, actively seeking new means to revitalize their 1911 Government series, stepped in and introduced a new offering in their already popular and famous 1911 Government Model series. It was called the Delta Elite and was chambered in the 10 mm Auto caliber. This move by Colt effectively accomplished two things at the time. It prevented the 10 mm cartridge from slipping into the abyss of oblivion as well as added a magnum-class chambering to their lineup.

Offered for your consideration is one (1) Colt Delta Elite in 10 m/m Auto caliber. This pistol comes in the original factory box, numbered to the gun, and with the factory wrappings and paperwork. While I do not know this for a fact, it appears to be unfired since it left the factory. This model was manufactured from 1987 to 1996 and I believe this Delta Elite to be late 1980’s production. It would either make a very nice addition to a Colt collection or a great shooter. Delta Elites in this condition are becoming very difficult to find. Additional pictures upon request.
