The following press release was issued by Magnum Research
For 30 years, the iconic Desert Eagle has been referred to as a “beast”. Now, more than ever, it looks like one too. Whether you prefer stainless steel, titanium, gold, chrome, nickel or bronze, the Desert Eagle has a finish for everyone. Now, for a limited time, the Desert Eagle can be purchased in a Cheetah print.
“We always have had a tremendous amount of interest among fans of the Desert Eagle every time we introduce a new pattern or finish” stated Frank Harris, VP of Sales of Marketing. “The introduction of the Cheetah print was something our dealers thought would appeal to collectors and also those people who just want a more wild finish on their DE.”
The new Cheetah finish on the Desert Eagle .50 AE and .44 Mag, utilizes a water transfer method. It has been extensively tested for durability and has proven to be very tough; even cleaning solvents and acetone will not soften or damage the finish.
The Desert Eagle .50 AE is a gas-operated, semi-automatic pistol with a 7-round capacity in .50 AE and 8-round capacity in .44 Magnum. Both guns measure 10.75” in length with a 6” barrel, or 14.75” in a 10” barrel. Slide width is 1.25”, height 6.25” and the weight with an empty magazine is approximately 4 lbs. 5.8 oz. in .50 AE, and 4 lbs. 6.6 oz. in the .44 Mag. It has a trigger reach of 2.75” and a sight radius of 8.5” with the 6” barrel. The construction of the Desert Eagle utilizes the latest CNC machine technology providing exacting specifications with tight tolerances creating a work of art in a precision firearm. The grip is anatomically formed and provides an ideal hand seating angle for two-handed shooting allowing for comfortable, rapid and accurate firing. The Weaver style accessory rail easily allows for aftermarket optics and scope rings.
The limited edition Cheetah print Desert Eagle is only available while supplies last. Please visit your favorite dealer today to purchase it in either .50 AE or .44 Magnum.
The MSRP on the Cheetah print Desert Eagle is $1793 for either the .50 AE or the .44 Magnum. For more information about Magnum Research products, visit http://www.magnumresearch.com
