This US-manufactured Desert Eagle .44 Magnum is a gas-operated, semi-automatic pistol with a rotating bolt for positive lock-up. The barrel is locked in place, assuring a high degree of accuracy. Maximum effective range with the standard 6" barrel is 200 meters (650 ft). The polygonal rifling reduces barrel wear and enhances the obturation between the bullet and the bore, thus increasing accuracy. It has an anatomically formed grip, for an ideal hand seating angle and comfortable grip dimensions to permit rapid, accurate, instinctive shooting. The Desert Eagle is designed for two-handed shooting. When the last round in the magazine is fired, the slide remains in its maximum recoil position, permitting rapid change of magazine and immediate chambering of a round for instant resumption of firing. This model has two mounting slots on the top of the slide for the use of aftermarket optics. This model is California compliant.
