New for 2016 comes the redesigned Delta Elite, which features an upswept beavertail grip safety, extended thumb safety, composite stocks with Delta medallions, and Novak white dot sights.
“Although it was developed for tactical applications that require more power in a reliable package, nowadays the Delta Elite is for the outdoorsman who’s hunting medium sized game and wants a powerful handgun for when things get up-close,” Colt Product Director Justin Baldini said in a statement. “So we took the existing model and added modernized features that not only pay homage to its tactical heritage, but also make it an outstanding package for hunting or personal defense.”
