I’ve taken temporary possession of the new .50-caliber Magnum Research IMI Classic Desert Eagle. My preliminary finding: the full-on Israeli-made Eagle is NOT an easy piece to shoot. (Surprise!) In the video above, I give Eddy from American Firearms School agita about keeping enough hand on the gun. Yes, well, look at his group. And then look at mine. Oh wait! It’s not there. ‘Cause it sucked; I missed the damn paper at five yards. There are reasons for that (other than a general lack of marksmanship) which I will explain at the appropriate time. Meanwhile, good news. This Eagle spits on the American-made Eagle’s jam-o-matic rep. It’s built like the proverbial brick shithouse. My fellow gunnies and I have run 100 rounds through the jumbo-sized semi without any failures of any kind. Other than, you know, mine. Pics on Facebook and review to follow.
