Magnum Research Desert Eagle 1911 !!!

    Magnum Research is manufacturing a 1911 which will go on sale next year! Two sized model will be on offer.

    Magnum Research has entered the 1911 segment of the handgun market with its first two offerings, a full-size (5.055” barrel) and semi-compact (4.33” barrel) Desert Eagle® 1911 pistol. Both models feature enhanced beavertail safety, skeletonized trigger and hammer, crisp trigger, extended safety lever, beveled magazine well, tightly tolerance frame and slide for enhanced accuracy.

    I believe that these pistols will be manufactured in the United States, not imported from Israel.
