Once again, USA based Magnum Research is introducing another new version of the iconic Desert Eagle with the addition of their new Cerakote Tungsten to the .44 Magnum and .50AE Desert Eagle products.
“Over the past couple of years, we have added Stainless Steel, Burnt Bronze, even animal prints to our Desert Eagle line, but now we have upped the image with this very commanding dark gray graphite color called Tungsten. The new color really puts the “muscle” into the look of this powerful handgun.” says Frank Harris, VP of Sales and Marketing. “The overall look has a military feel about it which really appeals to many gun owners.”
The Cerakote coating is a multi-step process which results in a high temperature ceramic coating that holds up well under normal use. The Tungsten model is complemented with attractive black appointments which gives the pistol even more appeal.
