Stainless Delta 10mm!

The previous owner was just not getting into 10mm lately and wanted to sell it. I told him I knew some who might be interested and asked how much. When he said $400 and it comes with an addition fitted ported BarSto barrel, I about fell over. Said sold, I needed to go home to get the cash. He said not to bother we would just meet up during the week.

Pics at lunch time.

That piece looks to be in far finer shape then the one I saw at a local gun shop for 300 dollars more. If the internals are in the same condition, a very nice bargain.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, John, but the reason you got such a good deal on that gun is that it is "hotter than $2 shotgun"!!

BUT, as a favor, I will arrange to have it turned into the proper authorities for you, with no questions asked!

Just send me the gun - and I will take it from there:D !!


Nice piece!! (does she have a sister??)

Detail stripped and cleaned this evening. It was clean, but dry. It soaked up lubricant like a sponge. Has the usual dings of a competition gun, the previous owner said he used it shooting pins. Overall it's in real good shape. Has a nice trigger.

He changed out the factory original two spring recoil system for a FLGR with a 22# spring. He still had it, and gave me the original recoil springs, guide rod, and plug. I replaced the recoil spring with a new 20# variable( the one in it was 1 1/2 in shorter than a new spring), put in a red heitt shok bufff, and put in a new firing pin spring. I will pick up a new main spring tomorrow and put it in.

Replaced the Packmier (spelling?) rubber coated mainspring housing with a SS contoured stippled housing (thanks Brian, I knew it would be useful oneday, what's better than putting it in a 10). Also replaced the rubber grips with a set of double diamond rosewoods I had in my box. Looks good. Hopefully another pic tomorrow. Shooting a match this Sunday, let you know how it did.
