Have a question about a Colt Delta Elite



A buddy of mine has a blued Colt Delta Elite that he's wanting to sell. Looks to be from the late 80s and looks to be in pretty good shape.

He has the gun, 3 mags, holster, and some ammo he's wanting to sell and he's asking me where I think he should ask. I initially thought $1000 but now I'm thinking $800-850

What do y'all think?

The holster is worth at least $300.

Always ask for more. You can go down but you can't go up.

If any of ya'll have interest let me know. He's in Mobile, AL. I don't know anything about the holster, but he's wanting to unload it.

ETA: I'd buy it but I don't have any way to get down there to get it right now.

Lots of good 10mm Auto info here.
LINK
According to this website, approx value of $785. LINK if the blued finish might decrease the value some? Extra mags would bump it up considerably, I would think. The holster is an Uncle Mike's "Sidekick" which are usually not very expensive.

Yes, but internal workings and mechanics. Same as 1911's

Yeah, recoil spring poundage is different I believe.

If the OP comes back in this thread and the gun is still available I'm driving to mobile today.

Seller is in Mobile, AL. It's a 3 hour drive from NOLA. You'll need to go to an FFL though since it's across state lines.

Friends help friends contribute to their 1911 habit.
