We, at Ballistic Magazine, recently partnered with Magnum Research for a custom .50-caliber Desert Eagle giveaway. It ends April 6, so if you’re reading this after that date, sorry—you missed out. Why are we bringing this up? Well, our custom giveaway guns are patriotic as all hell. But Magnum Research just one-upped them with its all-new Presidential Desert Eagle.
Presidential Desert Eagle Details
While our custom giveaway guns span the history of America, the new offering from Magnum Research is specifically for Trump supporters. The new .50 AE pistol features custom engraving from our friends over at Outlaw Ordnance, who also customized one of our giveaway guns.
For the new Desert Eagle, Outlaw Ordnance ornately engraved the slide and frame with detailed illustrations depicting President Trump, his signature, motto, title, and elegant scrollwork. Within the scrollwork are hidden “Easter eggs” commemorating various achievements throughout his life. The left side of the slide denotes his status as “45th President of the United States”. The polished Hogue aluminum grips contain the Presidential Seal, and images of the Trump family. All metal surfaces on the gun are matte stainless.
The new pistol starts life as a Magnum Research model DE50SRMB. What does that entail? The base model features a 6-inch barrel with an integral muzzle brake and rail for optics mounting. Meanwhile the frame features a rail for accessories. Magnum Research also fixes the sights, which combat type. It also includes one seven-round magazine. And, as expected for a gun like this, the entire thing is made in the United States.
Now for the item on everyone’s mind: Price. The new Desert Eagle comes in with an MSRP of $3,007, which really isn’t bad, all things considered. For more information, keep your eyes on MagnumResearch.com.
