    There's one at a store in the area that I have my eye (and a deposit) on. It's 10mm, looks to be nickel plated, and looks like a pre-Enhanced Delta Elite, with the same Delta wraparound grips, non-undercut trigger guard, and vertical slide serrations. It looks and feels VERY nice, but I can't find any info on it anywhere. I did post on 1911forum, but no bites yet.

    Anyone know about these, or have any info? 10mm guys?

    Thanks

    Look here for a little blurb on the combat ten. Looks like a very limited run from the Colt custom shop.

    As always, if you decide to not buy the gun.....please let me know and I will gladly take it off their hands, if the price is right.

    It's not nickel plated, it is stainless steel.

    Thanks, I couldn't really tell. Bob, thanks for the link, but I think the sale is a done deal. I'll let you know if I ever decide to sell it.

    If it is a Custom Combat 10, it is most likely nickle plated, and a nice find, considering the number that were made.

    Welcome to the world of 10mm, there are several of us on the board here who really like the round. It is presently experiencing new interest and there is more and more ammo becoming available.

    Call me strange, but I prefer my guns a little different. My main carry guns are the 10mm, a .41 mag, or a 45 colt. I really need to start reloading so I can save the big bucks and tailor my ammo at the same time.

    I am seriously considering getting a Para P16 in .40 slow and weak and having it made into a 10mm. Afterall, what could be better than a 1911 style 10mm that holds 16 rounds?!
