    Hey all, I am looking to buy a 1911 in 10mm. Anyone have any suggestions? I am a fan of Wilson Combat, but I am not sure if I want to spend that kind of money. Any info would be a big help. Thanks, Al

    check out the Colt Delta Elite in 10mm. Dan Wesson use to make a 1911 in 10mm, not for sure if they still do or not. haven't seen one on their website.

    I've got a Kimber Eclipse II and First Edition Stainless Colt DE, both are excellent shooters and are about the same price, with the Kimber being maybe a little more. Kimber has another full-size 1911 that is (I believe) a little less expensive.

    I got the First Edition Delta Elite (Blue / not stainless) and it was total crap (this was ~20+ years ago). Everything fell apart; the medallions on the grips, one grip cracked, it jammed frequently (variety of ammo and lubricants). When it returned from the factory for the third time, I swapped it for a Special Edition Smith 27.

    Someone (who has one) will also likely point out that Glock makes (at least) one 10mm and (as are most Glocks) pretty reasonably priced. If possible, rent one of whatever you choose, they're not for everyone.

    Also take a look at the used market.

    I picked up a 10mm DW C-BOB for less than expected (case was marked "blemished", but I can't find it.)

    Always wanted a Colt but CZ makes a 6" hunter model that is worth a look. 10mm is under appreciated.
