Colt kept interest in the powerful 10 mm round alive with the release of the Delta Elite back in the 1980s. Now, Colt has redesigned its Delta Elite gun to include an accessory rail.

"The Delta Elite started its life as a tactical option for 1911 enthusiasts who required more stopping power than your traditional .45 ACP," said Justin Baldini, product director for Colt. "In that world, an accessory rail makes a lot of sense. What we've seen, though, is that this is a great platform for hunting pig or other medium sized game. In those types of scenarios, proper illumination is critical, so I think hunters will really appreciate the ability to add on their favorite rail-mounted lighting."



All of the enhanced features from the newly redesigned Delta Elite are present on the Rail Gun version, including the upswept beavertail grip safety, extended thumb safety, all stainless steel construction, composite stocks with Delta medallions, and Novak white dot sights.

MSRP: $1,299
