    Yikes. I would just buy a brand new STI for several hundred dollars less. They must be hoping for a collector to walk in.

    Gee, I found a NIB that I bought for $900.00 a year ago. I've seen them for sale on GUNBROKER for up to $1500.00. TOOOOOOO much money and I'm not a sucker.

    The Gold Cup Deltas are nice, but $1900 :eek: is a bit much!

    At the last gun show, I saw one for $1195. Is that a high price?

    Not all DEs are Gold Cup models. I read somewhere that only 750 of those were made.

    No, not all Delta Elites are Gold Cups, but NONE of them are worth $2000!

    Just buy a Glock 20. Better gun anyway.

    All Delta Elite Gold Cups have that embossed on the slide. About 500 produced from what I hear. I really enjoy mine. You can find Deltas for alot less. Nice gun. Its just a matter of what you like. Others in 1911 configuration, include but are not limited to:

    S&W Autos -- You can find these plentiful. $400 - $600 depending on model
    Dan Wesson in various configs: Razorback, Pointman, Global Hunter ect
    S&W 610 revolvers: fires 10mm and 40 S&W. :D
    Glock: Good for a "polymer gun" :uhoh:

    10mm's are for shooters, hunters, ect. Reloaders make out best because of all the choices available for reloading.

    I have the Kimber Target II in 10mm, and I paid $1000 for it!! I suspect I could have saved $100 or so if I had shopped around, but no guarantee there. Anyway, I really like the 10mm and it has never malfunctioned and is very accurate. I'm still learning the gun, and developing handloads for it. I have a couple of Browning Hi-Powers in .40 and a S&W M646 also in .40 and it's convenient that they use the same bullets. I don't think I would like the 10mm so much if I weren't a handloader. OTOH, I wouldn't enjoy shooting anything as much if I weren't reloading. ;)

    Colt Delta Gold Cup

    I bought a slightly used Colt Delta Gold Cup 10mm about 4 years ago for $800 in an Internet sale. I had watched for one for quite a while, and that was the best price I had seen.

    I thought the trigger pull was a little heavy, so for $50 I had a gunsmith do a trigger job and lighten it to 4.0 lbs. I have put maybe 250 rounds through the gun, and it shoots quite well. I didn't realize that only 500 or 750 or these had been made. Generally I shoot 1911's in .45 caliber, so this gun mainly sits in the safe.

    It is obvious that the seller thinks the operative word in the description is "Gold". :D

    I have not seen a 10mm Gold Cup sell for over $1K.

    There was one on Auction Arms a few weeks ago that sold for that sum.

    Now that makes me just want to cry. A gun dealer friend of mine took a LNIB Delta Gold Cup stainless in trade and asked me how much I though it was worth. He's not real familiar with the 10mm market, and I offered the opinion that he should be able to get at least $600 for it. Told me if I wanted to buy it for that he'd sell it. Didn't have the cash for it, so I declined. Maybe I should have put it on plastic.:mad:

    A year ago I found a stainless one w/about 500 rounds of brass, dies and a holster IIRC that was marked about $699, and the shop manager told me he'd let it got for $525. I went in the next day, and he told me $699 plus tax. :barf: Great gun but I was really taken back by the way he changed the tune on the price when I showed serious interest.

    At any rate, I found a like new stainless standard Delta for less than a used XD-9, so he can pound sand.

    I know it's a free market, but the only thing that ads like that do for us is to run up gun prices.

    Call Wilson Combat and order one of their CQB pistols in 10mm for $101.00 more! You'll have a pistol that's guaranteed to print a 1" group @ 25 yards!

    The GC Delta Elite won't guarantee that! What makes a pistol beautiful, is what it does. "Form follows function".
