View Full Version : Such thing as a Delta Elite Commander?

That could possibly be my dream gun. Wondering if the Colt Custom Shop could make me one with the roll marks and everything?

I realize that this may sound sacrilegious to traditional Colt guys, but a bobbed, Commander length Delta in 10mm that mimicked my Dan Wesson 10mm Cbob would be the bee's knees.

I'd be interested in that as well. I drooled over the DW CBOB 10mm every time I saw one but was never in a position to purchase it. Now that I'm in a better position and could afford I can't find one.

I plan to carry my Delta Elite as my concealed handgun but a Commander size would be a little easier.

I really love my DW Cbob in 10mm and I know it's probably better than the average Colt, but there is just something about the Delta.

I can imagine it bobbed, 30 lpi checkering on MSH and GS, carry cuts or ball cuts, French border, serrations on rear of slide and top, Ed Brown, TS, MSH and GS, crown flush with barrel bushing, ledge sights, slim grips, 3.5 lb. trigger, NP3 Plus, Hard Hat or Hard Chrome, etc.

Right now I'm fat enough that I can conceal the Delta Elite pretty easily. Maybe by the time I lose the weight I need to Colt will see the light and release the commander size Delta and that will be my prize to myself for accomplishing my goal.

There's a guy selling a Nighthawk in that same configuration, with the exception that it's 45ACP, but I want that little triangle on mine.

Maybe Colt could call it the Delta Carry or something? Oh yeah it would have to be dehorned like a mother, unlike a stock Delta.

Start emailing Talo Inc. Maybe they can get Colt to do something. They're good at contracting manufacturers to make off-the-wall stuff.

Good idea. Would it be cooler to do that or to have something totally original through the Colt Custom Shop?

I don't know. If Talo were to have Colt make the gun, it's still a Colt.

Bummer...

Here's the reply from Brent.

"Maybe in the near future but for now I must decline. I have to get frames made and slides for a commander with a 10mm feed ramp and breech face. That takes a while around here.
Brent"

:rofl: That's funny. I called them and also emailed their custom shop, asking about a commander Delta Elite today too. Maybe that gets them thinking about doing it since they got two people in the same day asking about a DE commander. :cool:

Good thinking! :)

Maybe we should start a campaign of guys calling "randomly".

Not really sure what the email address is...I found out that Brent is on 1911forum, so I sent him a PM.

I like the rail on a full size, not the commander size. But that's just me.

What is the number to call to contact Colt? I'd be interested in a commander size Delta as well as a Delta rail gun. I want to call and let Colt know what I want to see from them also.

It's been a number of years, but I am pretty sure I saw one for sale once on one of the gun action sites.

What I know was that it was a Commander and advertised as being in 10mm.
It was probably someone's chop job.

deadite

Buy a Delta.
Send it to a GOOD PistolSmith.
Have it cut down to Commander specs.
Refinish.

And the FCS. I'd lose those wrap around grips, too, and checker the front strap.

I know it has been done, can not remember who did it.
Suit slide, machine for barrel bushing, shorten frame rails & dust
cover.

I'm sure Chuck could do it.
He has machined bull barrel slides to accept a bushing.

It is possible,......if you have the time to wait and the funds.
