  • BFR in .45-70, I brought enough gun. Blog, November 5, 2015 | By Hunter Elliott

    Magnum Research BFR in 45-70 Government, I brought enough gun.

    My Uncle Larry is an avid hunter, and that is putting it mildly, so he talks often about handgun hunting. That got me to thinking about what sort of handgun would come close to a do all in single handgun. I will be honest, I have hunted but don’t anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against it but I don’t care for getting up early in the morning. I do like to experiment and thought it would be an interesting project for me to work on. I figured since this handgun would be for all sorts of game, I decided on an affordable revolver that would be inexpensive to shoot but with enough quality to hold up for use over the years.

  • Gun Review: Magnum Research’s Baby Desert Eagle III Pistols

    Magnum Research’s Baby Desert Eagle III pistols deliver compact yet capable firepower for everyday carry!

    Personal Defense World Website, October 30, 2015 | By Jorge Amselle

    Just the name of Desert Eagle immediately brings up images of one of the most famous movie guns in recent history. Any time a director needed to make a big impression it was with one of these huge, gas-operated, rotating-bolt pistols that handle everything from the .357 Magnum to .50 AE cartridges. While the Baby Desert Eagle is an altogether different animal, it too seeks to make a big impression with shooters, albeit in a much smaller package.

    The original Desert Eagle was developed by Magnum Research Inc. and manufactured in Israel by Israel Weapon Industries. They proved to be capable and popular. The latest version of this rugged and reliable pistol is the new Baby Desert Eagle III.

  • Magnum Research Desert Eagle .50 AE, handheld artillery strike Blog, March 30, 2015 | By Hunter Elliott

    Magnum Research Inc was founded by Jim Skildum and John Risdall in 1979. The flagship pistol developed by MRI is the Desert Eagle, which was manufactured by Israel Military Industries beginning in 1985 and continued until 1995, when MRI moved the manufacturing contract to Saco Defense in Saco, Maine. In 1998, MRI moved manufacturing back to IMI, which became Israel Weapon Industries. Both Saco and IMI/IWI were strictly contractors: all of the intellectual property, including patents, copyrights and trademarks are the property of Magnum Research. Since 2009 the Desert Eagle Pistol has been produced in the USA at MRI’s Pillager, MN site and since that time it has been manufactured solely in the US. In 2010 Magnum Research was purchased by Kahr Arms.

  • Big Bore Test: Magnum Research’s Desert Eagle Mark XIX .50 AE

    A "both hands on" review of the Desert Eagle Mark XIX .50 AE that's turning heads with its slick finish.

    Personal Defense World Website, April 22, 2015 | By Mike Detty

    Make no mistake about it, the Desert Eagle is a serious gun! With its hand-filling girth and 4.75-pound, solid-steel heft, the precision-engineered pistol possesses power and accuracy not normally associated with handguns. There are very few guns that are as iconic as Magnum Research’s massive Desert Eagle. It is a gun that is instantly recognizable and symbolic of American ingenuity and brute force.

  • Magnum Research .22LR MLR-22ATU Rimfire Rifle with 18-inch Ultra Tensioned Barrel Review

    Major Pandemic Website, April 10, 2015 | By Major Pandemic Editor

    The graphite barreled MLR22AT from Magnum Research rifle I tested about a year ago was about half the price of any of the rifles I tested in my Ultimate 10/22 shootout. That graphite barreled delivered performance and accuracy which was nipping at the heals of high dollar competition 10/22’s brands like Kidd, Volquartsen from a performance perspective. The Magnum Research 10/22 clone rifles are kinda like the guy in the tweaked Nissan 300Z who can keep up and occasionally beat the guys in $1 Million sports cars.” It does it all at a $560-$599 + optic MSRP instead of $1000+optic MSRP.
