Is there a current production 10mm with a small grip frame? Did the old S&W 10mm have a small grip frame? I guess I would be looking for a single stack magazine gun. Range use only, small grip frame, all else not too important. I find the 1911 to be perfect, just as a point of reference.

Yes the Smith 10xx series is a single stack.

The S&W grip is bigger because it must house the double action draw bars from the trigger. The 1911 format is about the smallest grip size you will find for the 10mm.

Actually not true. Both S&W 10XX and 1911 grip frames both measure .750" (just measured em :) ). The S&W factory grips are ultra thin,total width across the grip 1" vs. 1911 with walnut grips 1.25". Substitute Hogue rubber grips and the S&W is up to about 1.25" also. Marcus

OK, thanks.
How does the front to back dimension compare to a 1911 .45?
Also how does a 1911 type frame hold up with 10mm?

I won't get a chance to possibly see any till gun show next weekend.

I have not shot my Delta Elite enough to really know about durability. Others have reported that they do just fine. Here is a link to a site that discusses the 10mm and how to make the 1911 live a long life with the 10mm.
