Magnum Research Desert Eagle

The Magnum Research Desert Eagle is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in .357 Mag., .44 Mag. and .50 AE. The Desert Eagle is a popular line of pistols that was introduced in the early 1980s.

What put it on the map is it fires large caliber revolver rounds. Such powerful rounds weren’t typically chambered for pistols because pistols rely on multiple moving parts whereas revolvers are, more or less, one solid piece. Desert Eagles don’t have a typical pistol design instead it uses a gas-operated rotating bolt, which is a trait more common for rifles. It has a fixed barrel and front end, so the bolt blows back instead of a slide.

Features include an ambidextrous safety and when engaged it disables the trigger and blocks the firing pin, so even if it drops it won’t discharge. It is available in numerous finishes like gold, silver, titanium, etc. It has a rail to mount a scope and plastic composite grips.
