Desert Eagle 1911?




www.magnumresearch.com click on products and surprise!!! A 1911 with a bill board reading Desert Eagle 1911 G in huge letters! Anyone know the speciffics? ie: forged or cast frame, who supplies their frames or are they in house? Has anyone handled one of these? Appears they use Kimber sights but they could be a knock off.

They advertise them on their site @ $799.00, must be the magic # for production 1911's

From what I understand, that's actually the joint venture that Charles Daly had been working on with an Israeli manufacturer, but then got stabbed in the back when Magnum Research started marketing it... Or something, I can't really remember.

Don't know why they would want to compete in the U.S. at $799 suggested retail. I would think Springfield, Colts and Kimber would kick their tail from here to there. Maybe it's primarily an export piece?

there's a company (guncrafters) thats builds a 50.cal 1911. I've had the chance to shoot one for 1 mag and it was flawless, however 1 mag doesn't say much but as for firepower a 50.cal weapon that someone can carrie is sick

Desert Eagle "A real tack driver, just use the gun as a hammer"

I thought Magnum Research made guns that won't go 8 rds without choking but it's ok cuz the gun weighs 4.5lbs and will easily double as a club? Why do they want to attempt to ruin the 1911 platform?

I handled a Magnum Research 1911 here in Phoenix today. It may be cast not forged but it seemed like a decent package.

Novak sight cuts, dotless sights, very light trigger (I estimate 4 lbs), long 3-hole trigger, beavertail GS, extended TS, checkered backstrap/MSH.

Price ballpark: $680, similar to a Springer Mil Spec.

Anyone shot one?

Speaking of the topic at hand, it looks like a re-badged Kimber to me. Oh well, we can always use yet another new 1911 on the market, right?
__________________
Try not to fall into the common trap of wanting to replace everything on your new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out, and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot it for at least 500 rounds, then decide what you don't like and want improved. Vintage 1911's should NEVER be refinished or modified because it ruins any value they had as a collectible firearm.

Why would carrying a .50 be sick?

I'd have one in a heartbeat if they weren't mega $$$$$$$.


What was the old saying...Why do you carry a .45, because they don't make a .46...

The 50GI puts out about the same energy as the 45ACP.

Guncrafter is outstanding. I have one of their builds in 45ACP.

Not if it's sold by MRI and looks like that. Let's save the metal for tent pegs or something instead.

A co-worker just bought one. I haven't shot, just a quick look at it but it doesn't feel too bad. It ain't no Kimber. It's more like a polished up RIA. He paid $599.

It has, and I quote "tightly tolerance frame and slide for enhanced accuracy."

What, exactly...is a tightly tolerance frame?

Sounds like some obscure kids' show character. It's the Tightly Tolerance Frame Show!

I believe Kahr bought Magnum Research. So the MR 1911'S are probably Kahr's in disguise.

Ooh, I hate typos. Mis-typing, I can stand. Teh, adn, jsut, taht and whatnot are okay. It's just typing too fast. But spelling the word incorrectly, over and over.... arrgh.

I sent an email to Les Baer about this page.

It's a "muzzle brake" not "break". They still haven't changed it.

If you get email, in your junk box, and it's all misspelled, doesn't that mean the sender is unprofessional and a scammer?

Yes. Yes, it does.

I'd have called the MR pistol the BFG. and I promise you, I'd spell it correctly, in big letters on the slide. "B _ _ F _ _ _ _ _ _ G _ _ "

It's only my opinion and it might be the beer talking, but I like the shape of the Desert Eagle .50.

"Type-o" what?

I think MRI is about to get sued over the slogan on their website. I thought Glock had already registered the trademark on "The Science of KABOOM!". Was I wrong?

Desert Eagle 1911G

Maybe all you people that have not seen, handled or even shot a MRI 1911G ought to do yourselves and the rest of us a favor. Before runnin' off at the mouth about something you know absolutely nothing about, at least look at one, handle it, and if you can, shoot one, then give us an opinion instead of being an armchair expert.
I just purchased one yesterday. Took it to the range today and ran about 100 rounds or so of mixed FMJ and JHP from various manufacturers without a hiccup. Build quality is on a par with Springfield and some others. Just because it is lower priced than a Kimber or Springfield doesn't mean it's no good.
It's made in Israel by BUL, same people that make the Charles Daly 1911. Mine runs real good. Mags on mine are from Act-Mag in Italy.

Here, here DonM.......best thread on it yet. I was wondering about this pistol myself. I just happened to see it for the first time today as I am in the market for a 1911. I have been looking at R1, GI Expert, and PT1911, and NOW, the MRI 1911 is looking pretty darn good price wise. I would like to know if more people have shot them, and specifically how well it does shoot. By rep, MGI is extremely good in all aspects of the market so I would think this 1911 would be no different, but as you said DonM; Armchair experts can only opinionize. (i made that word up!)
