    I may (or may not) have a line on a stainless Colt Double Eagle .45 (series 90). The guy isn't sure if he wants to sell it, and isn't sure on how much it's worth. I expect this gun to have an extremely low round count as he _never_ shoots any of his guns. I've invited him to shoot many times, and he always has something else to do.

    So I'm wondering what a fair price for this gun would be, and is it worth going after? Also, I understand the difference between series 70 and series 80, but could someone please explain series 90?

    TIA

    Double Eagle isn't a 1911. It's a poor attempt at a double action 1911....

    I wouldn't buy a Govt sized Double Eagle unless I could get it for $300. They go for about $400-$450 for the Govt sized. The Commander sized is relatively rare and I have seen one on Gunbroker go for $900.

    From what I have heard, they are quite sorry.

    Thanks for the info. Glad I asked before making a move. I'll pass on the double eagle.

    If I remember right, my first exposure to the Double Eagle was a Michael Crichton novel (Red Sun Rising, if I remember correctly). I always thought it was an odd choice for the protagonist (a cop in California) to carry. I think perhaps the author thought it sounded cool. I'd make fun of a co-worker if he carried one, I'll be honest. :lol:
