When did the Colt Double Eagle come out?
The result was the Double eagle, which was designed in 1985 and produced by Colt from 1989 through 1997. Colt offered three sizes on Double Eagle, a full-size model with a 5-inch barrel, a Commander size with a 4¼-inch barrel, and an Officers size with a 3½-inch barrel.
What was the name of the Colt Double Action Gun?
Colt revisited double-action guns later with the All American (Model 2000), 90 Series Pony, the Pocket Nine, Czech-made Z40 and the Model O– but all were DAO guns, not DA/SA like the Eagle. All this further paints the short-lived Double Eagle into an interesting, albeit a very short, branch of the Colt family tree.
What kind of gun is the Double Eagle?
Model: Double Eagle MKII MK II Mark 2, Series 90, Double Action Officer’s ACP. Action Type: Traditional Double Action, Single Action Pistol with Decocker Safety, Removable Magazine Fed. Markings: The left side of the slide is marked “COLT DOUBLE EAGLE / MKII / SERIES 90” with two eagle heads.
What are the markings on a Colt 45?

There were even a few years when Colt made the Double Eagle in 9x19mm and the ultra-popular .40 S&W which was the greatest thing since sliced bread in the 90s. Colt made the full-size variants in 10mm as well along with .45 ACP and .40 S&W briefly in 1992.
What’s the difference between an eagle and a colt?
While Eagles are typically all-stainless, a small batch of two-tone guns was made by Colt with a blue finished slide over a stainless frame. Besides .45ACP, the pistols were made in .40S&W, 10mm, 9mm, and .38 Super, all of which are harder to find than the typical models.
