Custom work by : South Ridge Arms & Refinishing


Here is one of My latest projects this is a first generation Delta Elite, It was bone stock never fired. My wife bought it for me as a birthday present.
so me being me and and potentially isolating myself from the purists , I decided to do some custom modifications and turn it into my everyday Carry gun and shooter. So here is what I did....
. Cut new dovetail's and installed Novak night sights
. Cut front cocking serrations
. Complete dehorn (carry bevel)
. Cut and blended Ed Brown grip safety
. Polished the feed ramp and barrel throat
. Tuned extractor and Ejector for reliability
. Installed a titanium firing pin and fit a over sized firing pin stop
. Installed a extended safety lever "single side"
. machine checkered 20 lPI on the front strap
. Bobtail and blended mainspring housing to frame
. Complete trigger tune using C&S internals set to 3 1/2 lb. with 0 creep
. Trigger modification to remove take up
. Bobbed the VZ operator II grips and inlet the medallions

I've heard such rave reviews of the stock Delta Elite pistols . . . this new-and-improved version must be pretty special!

If that's what your "everyday shooter" looks like, I'd love to see what you consider a safe queen. :bigsmile:

I was not aware the good people of Orting are allowed to have things that nice.

It would be a shame to have to shoot some dirtbag with that thing and have police confiscate and abuse it. :crybaby:

I have worked on a bunch of Dan Wessons and other Delta's I would have been happy with either . But to acquire one with no work done to it was great... So in between other jobs I would sneak mine in. It was hard because I didn't have enough time so it took me the better part of three weeks.

Uh, yeah Dave, that's pretty bad. I mean, I'm sure I've never had a gun project take three whole weeks.... :ROFLMAO:

Heck, that would have taken most of us the better part of three YEARS....
