The latest and popular trend in handguns is exciting new finishes that gun enthusiasts feel best matches their personality. In keeping with that trend, Kahr Firearms Group created another custom finish with its new Black Tiger Stripe Desert Eagle in either .50 AE or .44 Magnum.
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. 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.
“While there are many people who appreciate an unadorned pistol, there are still those who feel they need something more – something that complements their personality,” stated Frank Harris, VP of Sales of Marketing. “To address those fans who want something ‘flashier,’ we have introduced our handguns in multiple colors, polished gold or chrome and even animal prints. The Black Tiger Stripe Desert Eagle was first exhibited at the 2016 SHOT Show and already we anticipate it will be one of our more popular models.”
The MSRP on the Desert Eagle DE50BTS is $1,922 and the Desert Eagle DE44BTS is $1,895. For more information about Magnum Research products, visit www.magnumresearch.com.
