The lugs on the DE are different than the .45.

(But the .40S&W barrel from Kart are the same.)

I am not quite understanding I guess. I am keeping the 10 MM DE barrel just like it is . I want to be able to convert to 40 cal, So I have to buy a DE barrel in 40. Right?
How do I contact Kart?
Thanks

This is a phone number:

Also, Midwayusa and Brownells could order it for you

Grips are standard full size grips.

Thanks Olympus. I need to get over to your site and see if I can find a set of grips that will really make that stainless DE shine. Recommendations are appreciated..

Honestly, grips are one of the most subjective parts on the 1911 I've ever seen. While I hate to turn away business, if you're shooting a 10mm, you really should consider something with as much texture as you can find. I believe the Delta Elite does not have any checkering on the front strap and that is where you need the most grip. So smooth grips might not be the best choice in this situation.

Yeah I know what you mean. Although this one with the comp on it is a powder puff. Feels like a 45 acp as far as recoil. Anyway I am going to shoot it some before I get grips. It has a pair of wrap around rubber/plastic (real tacky) on it
now. Prob factory. Will see just what it takes to tame the beast first.
