Colt Double Eagle MKII 45 owners, got a couple of ?
Anyone here have a Colt Double Eagle in 45 (or 10 would do) I am probably picking up one tomorrow and there is really not too much on here about them. I searched and came up with a few threads but not many or any recent.
First off, I know it is not a 1911. I will be getting it for range, fun, and add to my collection. I kinda like unique guns and my trigger style of choice is DA/SA.
1) Am I correct that they will take standard 1911 mags?
2) Will most 1911 holsters fit? From what I have read they are wider, but how much? The trigger guard seems larger than a standard 1911
From what I can gather the Mark Is has some issues, but anything bad about the Mark IIs? Do most owners seem happen with function, accuracy and lifespan?
I have 2 Double Eagles that I have carried mostly through the 1900's due to work and love them. Yes they will take standard 1911 mags in either 7 or 8 round versions. No they do not fit most 1911 holsters because the trigger guard is way to large. It does fit in open end Beretta 92/m9 holsters also you can reshape closed end fitted leather holsters if you have a plastic 1911 to sweat and mold the end of the holster. Any other questions holler at me
Thank you, got it today. Can't wait to take it to the range
You should enjoy it a lot I did a trigger job on mine because I like a light trigger pull. but that is all I have done or had done. I do suggest you test your decocker while at the range just to be sure of it before you try it at home.
I love mine. My only regret is I couldn't find one in a commander length.
Keep looking they are out there it just will take a while.
