SHOT Show 2016 – In 2015 Magnum Research first introduced the Desert Eagle .50 AE Mark XIX pistol in stainless steel. 2016 is now the moment to introduce the stainless steel Desert Eagle in .357 and .44 Magnum.
Both the Mark XIX Desert Eagle .357 and .44 Magnum are offered in an all stainless steel construction of the frame, slide, barrel and rail, and is accented with attractive black appointments.
“When we introduced the first stainless steel Desert Eagle Mark XIX in .50 AE last year, the demand was overwhelming and it was difficult to keep up with that demand” says Frank Harris, VP of Sales and Marketing. “Unquestionably, the Desert Eagle Mark XIX series is the most popular handgun that Magnum Research manufacturers, and now, in stainless steel, the .357 and .44 Magnum, as well as the .50 AE, look more commanding than ever before. This has been our most successful introduction to date.”
Both models have a 6” barrel and have an integral muzzle brake which will replace the add-on brake which Magnum Research offered for a number of years.
With the new integral muzzle brake, it offers significant recoil reduction, less muzzle flip and an attractive streamlined appearance. The .357 and .44 Magnum also features a new picatinny bottom rail for accessories.
In addition, because the overall length remains the same as the standard 6” barrel model, the same holsters will fit these models.
The Desert Eagle stainless steel models are 100% made in the USA, and both the DE44SRMB and the DE357SRMB both list for $1,931.
