New for 2014, Magnum Research’s well-known Desert Eagle will get a limited production run in a new coating.
The Mark XIX Desert Eagle .50 AE will be finished in a new high temperature ceramic Cerakote coating called burnt bronze,
Magnum Research, a Kahr Arms-owner company, calls the new version of its famed pistol “sexier than ever.”
The Cerakote coating is a multi-step process, which results in a high temperature ceramic coating that holds up well under normal use. The burnt bronze model has attractive black appointments that give the pistol even more appeal.
The Mark XIX Desert Eagle .50 AE is a gas-operated, semi-automatic pistol with a seven-round capacity in .50 AE. The gun measures 10.75 inches in length with a 6-inch barrel, or 14.75 inches in a 10-inch barrel available in black as an aftermarket item.
The width of the Desert Eagle is 1.25 inches, the height is 6.25 inches and the weight with an empty magazine is approximately 72 ounces. It has a trigger reach of 2.75 inches and a sight radius of 8.5 inches with the 6-inch barrel.
