  • Lots of recoil

Editor’s Note:

The Colt Delta Elite was one of the first 10mm chambered 1911s to hit the market, but its simplistic yet efficient design has ensured its staying power. As a single-stack handgun, it may only hold 8 rounds, but those rounds have a lot of punch. We recommend the Delta Elite for all your handgun hunting needs!

Product Description

The Colt Delta Elite is a 10mm chambered 1911-style handgun that holds 8 rounds. It features a 5-inch barrel and Novak white dot sights. There are two versions — a railed and non-railed model.

final verdict

The Delta Elite is a decent option if you like the Colt name but want it in the butt-kicking 10mm round. There have been reports of cracked slides on some models after use, so be wary of that.
