Kahr Firearms Group collaborated with John “Tig” Tiegen, member of the Benghazi Annex Security team, to craft a special edition Desert Eagle designed to support military veterans.

For the project, Kahr donated 13 special .50AE Desert Eagle’s to foundations that aid military veterans and their families. The Deagles boast a Kryptek Typhon pattern with special engravings. Engravings include Tiegen’s logo and signature in addition to a Beyond the Battlefield logo — the organization Tiegen and his wife recently founded.

Tiegen, co-author of 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, said he is excited to be working alongside Kahr to help veterans.

“It’s awesome to be working with Kahr Firearms Group to provide these special edition Desert Eagles to 13 different organizations,” Tiegen said in a press release. “For me, it’s an honor to be in a position where I can help other veteran foundations raise awareness and money for the many different causes they represent.”

Each Deagle pistol is numbered 1 to 13 and Kahr says that four guns have been already auctioned off, raising roughly $40,000 for veteran foundations. Each organization chosen to receive the special edition gun was personally selected by Tiegen.
