Colt Double Eagle 10mm

Recommended Posts

Just bought a Colt Double Eagle 10mm. How do I tell the difference between a 1st and 2nd generation?


Does anyone make aftermarket grips for them?


I have several 1911 10mms and always change out the recoil springs to the 20-22# range. Is this possible for the Double Eagles? In other words, are the slides similar? With that in mind, what was the stock recoil spring poundage for the Double Eagles?

I have one and had no idea there were two versions.

I was looking for wooden grips a few years ago, and

found a set at one of the custom grip sites. I don't

remember which one though.

So, are you interested in the variety of grips for the Double Eagle that I found ?

No joy. Still looking. BTW, the grips I have on them now are wooden, looks to be a custom job; but a slight crack on the right exposes some of the trigger mechanism.
