You’ve got to give Magnum Research credit: they produce Desert Eagles without regard to taste. Tiger stripes! Gold! Gold with tiger stripes! Now available with a clear coat-protected case-hardened finish. Purists may puke, but I bet there are plenty of well-heeled Deagle buyers who prefer the ersatz Wild West look to drug lord chic. Here’s their presser:
Pillager, MN – Since 1985, Magnum Research (MRI) has diligently worked to continually introduce new products to their iconic pop-culture Desert Eagle series as well as their Baby Desert Eagle, BFR revolvers and MLR rifles product lines. Now, once again, MRI is expanding their Desert Eagle series to also include the Desert Eagle with a classic case hardened finish in .44 Magnum, .50 AE and .357 Magnum.
These Mark XIX series, DE44CH, DE50CH and DE357CH models, all feature a 6-inch barrel, an overall length of 10.75 inches, and a height of 6.25 inches. These gas operated, rotating bolt semi-automatic pistols are manufactured in the US and offer a high-quality carbon steel barrel, frame and slide.
All Desert Eagles feature a full Weaver style accessory rail on the barrel and standard ambidextrous safety. The case hardened finish is protected with a clear coat and adds a new spin to the classic look of these Desert Eagles.
The models ship with both rubber grips, designed for more vigorous range shooting, and for casual shooting, it also comes with wood grips with a laser engraved Magnum Research logo. MSRP on the DE44CH, DE50CH and DE357CH is $2,278 each.
