10MM Delta Elite question
 
I know there are some Delta Elite experts out there....
Here is my question. I just picked up a used DE today. It has an comp that is connected to the barrel. When you remove the barrel it stays attached. Not screwed on... it looks like the bushing type. but... is held to the gun with a two piece guide rod and recoil spring. The guide rod screws together. I did figgure out how to take the pistol down. Question is.. is this a common comp or what. Can it be converted back to a bushing system without the comp? It looks like there are no locking lugs inside the slide for the bushing to lock into. Thanks in advance.

That's not a common thing. You'll need to post some photos to get more specific.

I believe that the threads go back to the point on the barrel that would normally be held by the bushing.
You may need another barrel.

Here is the last pict showing the barrel with comp attached. Not sure how it is attached.

just looking at the pictures, i have to agree that a new barrel and bushing will be needed to go back to the original set-up.

looking at it, it looks like someone may have spent some bucks on the comp and barrel.

I would agree. That's not your typical "drop-in" compensator. That thing might actually work. Have you shot it?

Sell the assembly on Gun Broker and buy a new barrel.

Yes i have shot it . Only about 4 times..... and it shoots about like a 45 ACP. (I think the 45 is a powder puff when it comes to recoil). I have a range in my back yard and will put it through the ringer today and see how it really shoots. What little I have shot it so far I like. Will prob keep the Assembly as you call it and get a 40 Cal barrel,bushing, guide rod and spring and have more bang for the bucks that way. Any suggestions on where to get the 40 cal stuff?
Thanks Guys

One other question, well maybe two lol. Does the DE use standard full size grips and I have heard the lugs on a DE are larger than standard and takes a DE barrel.
True or not??
