I have wanted a 10mm 1911 for a while.
The standard Delta Elite was a solid gun but lacked a lot of the features I like in a 1911.
In October I bought one of the new Delta Elite XE models.
It's a great shooter.
Tight lock-up. Great trigger. Very solid.
Much softer recoil than I was led to believe(like a .45+P)thanks to the dual-recoil spring.
However, it consistently shot low and left.
Tight groups-just not where I wanted them.
I had to replace the rear sight with a Dawson Precision adjustable Novak
to get it to shoot where I pointed it.
I carried it deer hunting in Dec. as a back-up to my muzzle loader,but never needed it.
I find the Sig Elite V-crown ammo is potent and accurate.
My only real gripe is that Colt just came out with a railed version in Jan. and now I wish I'd waited.
There are getting to be more 10mms on the market and some are very nice if you can afford them.( Dan Wesson Bruin would be awesome)
I see Springfield Armory is coming out with a TRP model.
But for a sub $1,000 gun the Colt XE delta is a great gun IMO.
