Our Assessment:  Guns are engineered for multiple purposes.  For military service, police service, competition shooting, hunting, collecting, etc… The Desert Eagle was originally engineered, developed, and designed by Magnum Research, with the help of Israeli Military Industries, for one purpose and one purpose only… because they could.  It’s an understatement to say that the Desert Eagle is an engineering marvel, impractical sure, but a marvel nonetheless.  It is a gas operated, semi automatic, closed rotating bolt system packing the most powerful rounds on the market for a pistol.  It is one of a kind and a monster willing to intimidate anyone brave enough to try and tame it.  The Desert Eagle has developed a very unique niche and fanbase because of the power it brings to the range. It demands to be respected. The iconic look and size makes it a legend by itself that draws anyones attention.  It demands oohs and awes from crowds which is why Hollywood and video games have included the Desert Eagle in many projects.

This Custom Desert Eagle is the Ultimate Call of Duty fan’s Dream Gun.  If you need a bear gun, well, this gun is so cool bears might have no problem being honored by the chance to get shot by one.  Display it in a glass case, make it your Safe Queen, mount a scope to the rail and snipe targets at the range. Whatever you might do with a monster gun like this, all I know is the potential to have amazing fun is endless and you have to bid on it first!  The finish on this Israeli IMI Desert Eagle is no longer available through Magnum Research so don’t miss out on this particularly rare breed.  Please see our pictures and specs below and happy bidding!
