Is there any plain old Mil-Spec 1911 that was/is made in 10mm?

I'm gonna scratch my nuts before I reply. Ahhhh Now could someone tell me how in the flying fuck how anyone could think that a "mil-spec" 1911 could be anything other than the .45 ACP round.

Only parkerized 1911 10mm I can remember was the Springfield "Linkless," which was offered in about 1992. I have never seen one for sale, but the flossy model, the Springfield Omega, pops up from time to time for about $1000. The "linkless" had a different op system than the standard 1911.

I can tell you for a fact Colt made one 'cause I've got one.It's marked Delta Elite,Colt Auto 10mm on side of the slide on the other side it says Government Model. It's basically a 1911 chambered for 10mm.Springfield also made or makes one also.Never really understood why the 10mm did'nt take off.The reason was supposed to be recoil but it does'nt bother me. Because it's a hot round the 10mm is supposed to shorten the frame/slide life.Mine is probably close to 15 years old but I only have maybe 300 rds through it so I can't say anything about frame/slide life.As far as knockdown To me the 10mm fits perfectly between not enough and too much.

Ghost...original question was about 1991....whether he meant 1991-1911-i`m not sure now....as far as i know, no 1991 models were 10`s.....B&G

black&green---oops you are right.I guess I wasn't paying attention & thought it said 1911

The Colt Delta Elite 10mm guns were great for using to build a 224Boz 1911, 224Boz is a 10mm Auto case that's necked down to hold a .224 diameter bullet and with the Delta Elite very little had to be changed except for the barrel and the recoil spring.

On my second post, I said or a 1911. As AnotherGene put it, yes, just not a fancy one.
Link Posted: 5/29/2001 4:56:40 AM EDT
The blue one i have is probably as plain as it gets. one slab says government model, and the other side says delta elite 10mm....i`ve seen them from time to time on the auction sites and it seems they are pricey...not sure why...there was one in the local news last fall, and the guy was asking 600 for it...again, not sure why.........[smoke]
Link Posted: 5/29/2001 5:00:35 AM EDT
Aahhhhhh, So sorry for the reply, I must be a fuck dyslexic.....I mean dyslexic fuck, I read it to be 1911. What a fuck dumb I am.

Some agencies still use the 10....glock is the only one that i can think of that still offers one (at least most recent)..i have read in the recent past about some feds using the round and there apparently is 1 or 2 state police hanging on to thier old 1006 models....one of the reasons the ten didn`t stay popular is that smaller framed persons had a fit with recoil (some claim this on 45`s also???)..at any rate, the performance of the ten is certainly outstanding.....the emergence of 40 cal is putting another nail in the 10`s coffin too!...what i don`t quite understand is that subsonic 10`s are no worse than charged up 40`s...so why not just go with that, and have the capability of extra power?....maybe some p-c crap going on ???.....B&G..out
