In my experience with both, the Delta Elite outshoots the G20. In my hands anyway.

i have both. use an extra power recoil spring (at least 26 pounds) with the CDE if youre using real 10mm loads. mine has a nice BTGS so it is quite comfortable to shoot versus the previous stock GS.

my G20 is so damn good all i did was upgrade the recoil spring/rod assy to a 22 pounder.

if "lookin at" was the game my CDE would win, if just for craps and giggles on the range it aint bad either. plus its a Colt and all the pride and "status" of owning one.....like a Harley Davidson thing.....but....

if i had to depend on just one for defense it would be my G20. it handles real 10mm loads better than my CDE.

Glock 20 is the superior weapon.

Delta Elite looks much cooler.


It's all about your priorities.

All I can say is that I have Colt Delta Elite and it is an absolute nail driver. I don't shoot it a lot, but I always hit what i'm pointing at.

Good luck finding a new Delta Elite....I've been checking for a few months and haven't been able to find one a newly manufactured one. There was one on GunBroker, and after chacking the serial # it was manufactured in 2009, and I stopped bidding after it reached $1,200.00

Buy what you like and what you can afford, because hopefully, your life will never rely on which one you purchased...

I just picked up the DE I ordered through my LGS 5 months ago. I bought one NIB off GB as well.

They do seem difficult to find sometimes.

I have been thinking a delta would be hard to find. Ah well, this might make my decision a whole lot easier.

I agree. My G20 has been 100% with any and everything you can put in it. And that's coming from a Delta Elite and 1911 fan. My buddies Delta Elite Gold Cup Match was a jam-o-mattic. Accurate, but unreliable.

Ditto. Come on MD, you can do better than that.

I haven't seen any insults, but, bickering is gonna happen. We all have our own opinions.

Sounds good...I am trying to nip it in the bud, so to speak.

Well I'm speaking from real world experience. I own a G20 and have owned a DE previously and have probably put at least 20K of various factory and reloaded ammo through these platforms. Which one of these do you own? or are we just dishing out cliche glock koolaid?

DEs are more accurate and just as reliable.... granted you spring everything right and use good mags.

Now to comment on your superior weapon, why do all the G20 guys pick up aftermarket barrels for the hot stuff and reloads.

1911 Forums

Now I like my G20 just fine, and I think the little G29fs are great little guns too. However, the DE has better barrel support (have seen problems with this first hand), is more accurate, better trigger and can conceal MUCH better. Sure they have their pros and cons but shots on target are what counts to me. YMMV.

The DE has superior support? That flies in the face of everything I have heard prior, including underwood ammo's warnings that their hot ammo should not be used in DE but is acceptable with g20/29

As the owner of a couple Deltas I would recommend the Glock for outdoor use.

Really, when it comes down to it the SW 610 is a superior platform to both.
