    I am wanting to hear opinions and actual real-world successes and failures on this.

    I presently own a S/A 1911 in 45acp and I am wanting to obtain a 10mm slide and barrel assembly. I aready have other parts for this. I have heard the ramp angle is different for these two calibers.

    My questions are: 1. is the ramp angle actually different; and, if it is, 2. would that cause relibility problems?

    I would hate to waste time and money if it won't work. 400 corbon ammo nose dives into the ramp on this gun with a full magazine.

    It should work just fine if you replace everything you listed PLUS ejector & magazines.

    Looks like someone else is lamenting not being able to buy a Delta Elite back in the day.

    I had too many chances to count. Had one for $500.00 and thought it too high at the time. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!!
