Thanks for the laugh sport.
Geez. I haven't read this whole thread but here is a good laugh "sport" -- check the Colt website. The Delta Elite is in production.

Don't believe me? Check a gun shop, I just saw a new one yesterday. I would be happy to give you the phone #.

Still don't believe? Here is mine, manufactured 2009:

Cool glad to see it finally hit the shelves. I have not seen one since their announcement. Although I have no way of knowing the gun you posted is made in 2009 without the serial number. And if the round were that popular they would not have dropped production of the gun in the first place sport.
By the way according to uz2bUSMC you must be gay as you posted your NRA certification in your sig line.

That was then, this is now, Pat. How does determining how a cartridge is on the rise today have anything to do with what guns fell by the wayside years and years ago. Hey chief, get this.... we're not talking ten years ago, we're talking today. Is that simple enough or do I need to break it down Barny style?

Show me the stats that it's not. Let's talk about your suposed sources. You never back up anything Pat... you just "say" and expect people to believe you. Remat just shoved your fat foot in your own mouth but some how you're still gurgling BS. You're a loss to the great world of the internet. I know everybody has to have their 10%, I just wish it wasn't you... here... trollin' up GT.

This debate of "show me the proof...." reminds me of the religious debate of "well prove me wrong because I can't prove what I'm saying as fact". It's pretty annoying.

Edit: This was directed at Alaskapopo and anyone else who uses that excuse.

Also, how is this thread not locked yet! haha

As an owner of two 9mm and one .357sig pistols let me state my views.

For civilian self-defense under the most common situations 9mm is sufficient to stop the threat.

However, there are certain circumstances where 9mm falls short of what's required and that's why the search for a better service caliber began. Highway Patrol, Air Marshals, Secret Service, State and Federal Conservation Agents, urban/rural police departments, ... they're issued calibers (.40 S&W/.357sig) that have proven capable of overcoming most of these "certain circumstances".

I have no way of proving it, but I believe 10mm would be a popular law enforcement choice in many jurisdictions --- except for the ever-present ACLU-type interest groups who'd sue after every OIS on the grounds of premedited intent to kill. I suspect many of the large metropolitan police departments who have not stepped up from 9mm have a long history of lawsuits and don't want to make things even more difficult for themselves.

For those agencies who have adopted more powerful calibers than 9mm I have read nothing in the way of regret for having done so. Quite the opposite, if anecdotal evidence offered by LEO forum thread participants is believable.

The articles by Mas Ayoob, based upon his interviews with LEO personnel and ballistics researchers, support the "street cred" of .357sig. If I remember correctly, Mas Ayoob's personal choice of sidearms is .45ACP so I see no reason for anyone to question his input.

If I could have only one pistol from the ones I own I'd choose the .357sig.

LOL...If you were going to call Colt to verify my SN, just ask them how many they made in 2009 instead (if you do find out, please let me know, I am curious). Also, Cabelas has them for anybody looking for one. Local shop can find one and transfer it in.

As for the rest, I am quite frankly perplexed by the discussion.

The problem is the 10mmfanboys made their claim first. They need to show proof first.

Thank you very much! It has been flawless out of the box (I know they say that is impossible in a new 1911)

Not sure. I can tell you that it was hard to find. I had called almost every shop in Western WA looking for one. Cabelas could transfer one in but I got lucky and found one at Federal Way Guns, which incidentally, is the place that has another on the shelf (as of yesterday). They are no where as easy to find as an Govt XSE.

To keep the thread on topic, anybody ever convert a 1911 to 357Sig?

Sig was going to offer it in their GSR/Revolution line but for whatever reason never did.

I believe you would have issues with feeding if you tried to convert a 1911 to 357 sig. Due to the long bullet jump from the mag to the chamber. Getting 9mm and 40 sw 1911's to feed is tricky and the 357 sig would be even more so due to its nose diving tendency of the bottle neck rounds. I had a 40sw Browning HP converted to 357 sig by Cylinder and Slide and it never did feed right. They had to tweak the mags a lot. I do believe I saw a custom 1911 once about 8 years ago in 357 sig in a gun rag article. Not sure how they do in real life.

Alaskapopo -why are you even in Caliber Corner. I would think hanging around those other "tactical" forums would be better suited, because after having read all through this you basically think all calibers are of the same effectiveness. More companies are making 10mm guns than before. Four years ago I did not have any and now I own 4. No we do not have statistics, but the interest in the caliber has grown.

I have not talked to any "ballistic experts", but I have spoken with several highway patrol persons who are very happy with their 357 sigs and consider it a big step up from the 9mm. That means more to me. Also my own experience with animals shot has shown me a more devastating effect of the 357 sig than a 9mm. Now maybe not all 357 sigs rounds are the same. Since I do not have to shoot through barriers, I use the Corbon 125gr Seirra JHP, which leaves my G32 at about 1,430fps. I have found it just as effective as a 125gr 357 magnum, but I remember that you said that the 40 was a step up from the Remington 125 gr 357 Magnum. I have been shooting for a long time and have never heard anyone make that statement. I own both and I do not believe it is even comparable. I always wonder about people who have to put everything they may have done on their signature line. I may only be a backwood bumpkin and have never taken or instructed SWAT entry tactics class, but I do know the effect of bullets on living animals, and trust people who trust their lives on their side arm.

I don't think I'd be bragging about talking to Dr. Roberts. Not unless you are talking about how pretty your teeth are.

Yea that just shows how ignorant on the subject you are. Yes his current day job is a dentist. But he has done a lot of study and research and testing on wound ballistics more than any other person save Dr. Fackler himself. So save your ignorant comments.

Frankly what some road toad thinks does not matter much. Most of the guys you have talked to have probably never been in a gun fight and if they have I doubt they were in a gun fight where they could compare the 9mm and the 357 sig under simular conditions. You need to look at the big picture for that and not on the war stories of a few cops.

What matters are the stats collected from shooting results and autopsy's performed.

Frankly I could give a crap less what you think about me or my signature line. If you like the 357 sig by all means carry it. But don't try to justify your choice with a bunch of conjecture and BS. I have had to kill live animals as well good for you. I also have to trust my sidearm day in and day out to perform if I ever need it.

its always fun to watch a good caliber war. My 2 cents is I can understand why many shooters prefer the 9mm. In my experience the 9 is quicker on followups and more capacity. Some of us have Dirty Harry syndrome, including me. I am heavily invested in the 10mm 2 identical completly loaded up G29's with about 450 of aftermarket parts in each one and a new G20 that I got NIB for 465.00 and could not resist and hundreds in reloading supplies for the 10.
I just had a long discussion with a very experienced LEO and he made a very rational logical argument of the benefits of less powerful weapons, that very frankly have altered my thinking. I will however stick with my 10's becasue of my investment (I still love them)meaning more practice to become the best 10mm shooter I can be.

There are 2 sides to every disagreement. It gets back to what I have always said. Shoot the gun you have the most confidence in. Thats a personal choice becasue only you have to shoot it.

Please read my signature . Don't be
