    Both are great guns. I like the Colt but the DW is a better value if both are LIGHTLY used. You will find that DW is a great pistol. Unfortunately there prices went up a couple of years ago and I'm not sure in my opinion if it was worth it. seems quality went up but I don't think the small bit of quality was worth the 300-400 dollar increase. Still they make a great gun. Colt speaks for itself.

    I would opt for the DW.
    I am not too fond of the Colt Series-80 setup and DW does not have it.

    OK, yes.......good, no they aren't adjustable.

    For competition I'd want a Bomar Style adjustable sight.

    Why would you want to competitively shoot a 10mm?

    I would think you would want a Gold Cup running light target loads.

    Some competitions (USPSA and IPSC) have a power factor.
    The .38Super is not the best for inexperienced reloaders.
    The 10mm can be reloaded at a lower power factor than commercial (and still make "Major" power factor) and the platform allows an additional round over the .45.

    In competition, that extra round can make a difference.

    What sights are on your EAA?

    Makes sense. Guess my lack of competition shooting is showing. :eek:

    I'd pick the DW over the Colt.
