New finishes for the Desert Eagle pistols

The Desert Eagle pistol is available in several new finishes for 2016
The Black Tiger Stripe is the latest version of the Desert Eagle to have been launched by Magnum Research

Magnum Research, Inc. − a Kahr Firearms Group company − is mostly known worldwide as the manufacturer and distributor of the Desert Eagle pistol, a behemoth of a gas-operated, single-action semi-automatic handgun chambered in calibers such as .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum and .50 Action Express. Specifically conceived as a hunting and silhouette shooting gun (and not, as many would believe, as a combat firearm for military operators), the Desert Eagle is arguably the most iconic handgun of modern times.

Also new for 2016 is the Desert Eagle Tungsten version, sporting a Dark Graphite grey, Cerakote finish

New from Magnum Research for the year 2016 are four variants of the Desert Eagle in .44 Magnum and .50 Action Express offering unique finish patterns that will make them even more appealing to collectors and gun enthusiasts alike.

The Black Tiger Stripe Desert Eagle model is the latest entry of the series, and one of the many "animal print" Desert Eagle variants to have been announced at the SHOT Show last January. The Black Tiger Stripe Desert Eagle comes with a special custom finish: matte black stripes on a more shining black overall slide and frame, matching the personality of this powerful pistol with a likewise alluring look.

In the United States, the Black Tiger Stripe Desert Eagle pistol is currently available at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $1,922.00 (€1,702.62) for the .50 Action Express variant and $1,895.00 (€1,678.71) for the .44 Magnum variant.

Another similarly themed pistol is the Zebra Desert Eagle, available in .50 Action Express caliber, with black Zebra-type stripes and black appointments on a white high-quality carbon steel frame, barrel and slide; MSRP for this model is set at $1,793.00 (€1,540.43) in the United States.

Two more models, offering unique finishes, are based on the Cerakote treatment − a multi-step process which results in a high temperature ceramic coating that holds up extremely well against scratches and environmental elements. The Tungsten Desert Eagle, available in .44 Magnum, comes with a full "Dark Graphite" grey Cerakote finish complemented with attractive black appointments which gives the pistol even more appeal. MSRP for the Tungsten Desert Eagle is set at $1,712.00 (€1,516.52) in the United States.

Last, but not least, the WMD Apocalyptic Desert Eagle nods to zombie and post-apocalyptic themed fiction with its "Reptile" styled G10 grip panels and an overall "Distressed" matte black Cerakote finish that provides a distinctive weathered look.

The WMD Apocalyptic Desert Eagle pistol is available in the United States in a .44 Magnum variant, at a suggested retail price of $1,895.00 (€1,678.62); and in a .50 Action Express version, at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $1,922.00 (€1,702.54).
