Desert Eagle is a name famous all over the world, and among gun connoisseurs, it is synonymous with performance, power, and dynamics. The Desert Eagle uses a gas-operated mechanism normally found in rifles, as opposed to the short recoil or blow-back designs most commonly seen in semi-automatic pistols. The advantage of the gas-operation is that it allows the use of far more powerful cartridges than traditional semi-automatic pistol designs, allowing the Desert Eagle to compete in an area that had previously been dominated by magnum revolvers. Switching a Desert Eagle to another chambering requires only that the correct barrel, bolt assembly, and magazine be installed, which makes conversion to fire the other cartridges quick and relatively easy. This gold-finished single-action pistol features fixed open sights, synthetic grips, an ambidextrous safety, and a 7-round magazine and includes the original factory box. Its synthetic grip, its metal, and its bore are in all excellent condition.
