Know a good 10mm Gunsmith

Hey folks! I hope everyone is well after the holidays. What I have is a well worn Delta that shoots like a dream. However it is a bit on the ugly side of things. When I bought it the previous owner took it in trade where somebody drilled holes in the front dustcover and then tried to fill them poorly. The Gun is blued. It also has a beavertail safety that is mismatched but works.
What I want is a two-tone finish( Blued slide/satin frame) Adjustible sights, better fitted Ed Brown grip safety,and if all posible instead of straight verticle serrations, either angled or "snake scale"
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Take care and God Bless...RK

None of the stuff you've listed that you want done is 10mm specific- and even then all the good pistolsmiths are very comfortable working with all the various calibers the 1911 offers.

Get the metal work done by someone who can fit your job in between their full house customers, then send the gun off to Mahoveskys Metalife yourself- you'll be more than pleased with the finish work they do on your Delta Elite.

Good luck!

I'd send it off to George at Evolution Gun Works to weld up the problem areas and do the
mods you'd like then hard-chrome at least the lower to camoflage the holes in the frame.

Hey folks! Thanks B.Chambers and Mr. Hall. I realize now that I wasn't specific about the 10mm, I guess since I thought that was a given. I will try Evolution Gun Works and see what happens. You would be surprised who won't work on the gun since quote," somebody else has already worked on it". I am very surprised on alot of the responses of gunsmiths I know and have used before. Alot of guys only work on new pistols. Since I am a poor boy I can only afford. Thanks again. Do you have a web site or number for evolusion Gun works? Thanks again and God bless...RK

George at EGW

I have contacted George at EGW to price some work on my Delta Elite. I want my Delta Elite to be a "sleeper". I.E. I want to have it look like a factory pistol from the putside. George quoted me on the Slide-Frame Fit (weld and recut rails) and install a match barrel and bushing. I also had him price a dovetail front sight, Bomoar Rear Sight, and Ed Brown Beavertail. For the time-being, I'm saving for the accuracy work first. George's prices and turn-around time seems good.

Haven't used EGW yet, but should get one of their 38 super barrel bushings in the mail soon. If all works out, I be able to update the group on George's work before the year ends.
