I have been setting some funds aside to have my first gen delta elite sent off for a major overhaul/custom build. Then along comes a friend and collector with an offer to sell me a 1961 (mk1)NM colt mid range in 38 special. Absolutely stunning condition with lots of extras, only one small flaw as it has a mkiii barrel installed. This was a very popular upgrade for the mk1s. So now the question is do I drain my fund to buy the NM or continue with the plans to build the delta. I've been kicking this around for a few days and time has come to make a decision. The mid range guns don't pop up in this condition very often but it isn't very useful for anything but range fun. Maybe you guys can offer perspective.
