The thread about camping and 1911 got me alllll worked up to get a new 1911 and a 10mm at that! Keep it simple and the same manual of arms, plus I like having a grip safety.

Without turning into a brand debate which 1911 10mm are known for their reliability and durability? I'd like to buy quality of course but want to keep the price down. Is there something in the 10mm 1911 world along the quality lines of a STI Spartan or Springfield Loaded? It's not going to be used for anything other than talking peaceful walks into the great unknown.

And I thank all who mentioned 10mm 1911 in that other thread. Good enough reason to buy a new 1911!

How about a Delta Elite? I have no experience with them but I believe they are in the 1k-1.2k pricepoint.

Any of the 10mm 1911 have a high-grip safety?

When I read the word "Wilson" I immediately envision selling a kidney, eating Top Ramen for a year and not sleeping at night due to buyer's remorse.

Or you could talk to this guy and use his 12 month layaway with $100 down.

Oh my, some of you are truly sick individuals out to pimp expensive guns and enable my 1911 habit, aren't you?!?!

Thank you.

The Colt Delta Elite is what I settled on for the exact same reason. Decent price point and great quality.

If you're going to get a Delta Elite, grab a Bren Ten to match. There is no cooler pistol pairing than that.

Your best bet is to find a used Dan Wesson.

I'd go with a Delta. I've had two myself and they've been great. I have only had one issue with the older blued gun with one particular Wilson mag. It ran fine on the others, but absolutely hated that one. The new stainless gun runs that mag and every other one that I own just fine. The Delta won't break the bank initially, but if you do like I did it will end up being expensive.

This gun is actually going back for some more work in a couple of months. Bar-Sto Match barrel, 10-8 long curved trigger (I just can't get used to the flat one), and some other small things.

The slide breachface, ejector and extractor are different.

Not sure what "break the bank" entails. The Colt 2010 catalog lists the MSRP for the Delta Elite at $923.00. I have been trying to find one for a couple of months with no luck. My gun shop says they have some coming in but to data nada. The kimber looks nice but MSRP is higher.

Still waiting for a the Colt Delta.

How much are you going to shoot it? If the answer is "a lot" then you're gonna have to pony up some cash. The 10mm can be rough on a gun longterm with full power loads.
