Colt Debuts New Delta Elite Rail Gun and Wheelgun
New revolver and Delta Elite update.
In January Colt announced that it was debuting two new offerings for 2017. Colt’s Delta rail gun isn’t new, but the company is introducing a new version of the Delta Elite. The company announced the new guns in January but they did not appear on their website right away.
Here’s what the company said about the Delta Elite Rail Gun:
Colt’s venerable Delta Elite 10mm 1911 is now available as a Rail Gun. Colt kept interest in the powerful 10mm round alive with the release of the Delta Elite back in the 1980’s. Now hunters and advanced security operatives have the opportunity to take advantage of their favorite rail mounted pistol lighting, without giving up what makes a Colt 1911 special – while maintaining the near .41 Magnum ballistics afforded by the 10mm round. ($1299)

Colt’s Cobra is an offshoot of the company’s classic snub-nosed revolver they started offering in 1927, a gun that became known as the “Detective Special.” They stopped making wheelguns in 2006 when they put their Anaconda line on hiatus. But now they are offering the Cobra. Here’s what their website says about this $700 gun:
The Colt Cobra® marks Colt’s triumphant return to the world of double-action revolvers. Its small frame and 2″ barrel make it ideal for concealed carry. The Cobra® features all-steel construction, as well as a rubber wrapped grip that’s been moved rearward to help manage recoil. The Cobra® is chambered in .38 Special and is +P capable. This firearm was designed to meet the needs of new shooters and seasoned professionals alike. It’s easy and enjoyable to shoot, easy to carry, and draws from the fine lineage that make Colt revolvers special.
