Desert Eagle Making a Limited-Time Comeback

Kahr Arms, owner of Magnum Research, is now offering the classic Desert Eagle pistol originally produced by Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) in .44 Magnum and .50 Action Express.

The Desert Eagle  was built by Israel Military Industries until 1995, when Magnum Research shifted production to Saco Defense in Maine. Magnum Research returned production to IMI (which had been reorganized under the name Israel Weapon Industries or IWI) in 1998. Since 2009, Desert Eagle pistols have been made at Magnum Research's facility in Minnesota.

The limited production models will utilize the original two-piece barrel design, and original "claw type" safeties. Other unique features of the IWI model include a one-piece hard plastic grip with the IWI logo, and a fluted barrel on the .44 Mag. Both .44 Mag and .50 AE models will feature the Mark XIX picatinny rail configuration on the top of the barrel allowing use of a wide variety of optical sighting systems. Both models are gas-operated, rotating bolt semiautomatic pistols constructed from a high quality carbon steel barrel, frame and slide.

For additional information on the IWI-produced pistols, visit the Magnum Research website.
