Magnum Research Desert Eagle .357 6" Black 357 [DE357]
by Alan K
Date Added: Friday 27 February, 2009
My first gun was a DE .357. I paid only $649 plus tax, but those were the days back in 1987. A very interesting design on this gun really sets it apart from typical pistols. It has a rifle style rotating bolt and gas operating system. All steel and therefore quite durable as well. My advice is if you are going to spend this much, spend the extra and get one with a custom finish already applied, like brushed nickel, etc. Magnum Research's bluing leaves a lot to be desired and wears very easily. If I were to buy another one of these I would probably get the 44 version these days. Factory sights are big combat sights and you will want something more precision for accurate shooting. I sold mine for cash way back when and do miss it, but not enough to shell out the price they cost now. I'd much rather have something like a Ruger 44 Alaskan. DON'T SHOOT non jacketed bullets in these, it will clog up the gas system and ruin the barrel.
