I’m sure Magnum Research sells a lot of Desert Eagles in general, and probably even a lot of this model (TG-TS Titanium Gold Tiger Stripes):

The Desert Eagle just doesn’t do it for me.  It’s bulky, incredibly heavy, and very expensive.  Yea you can get it in the big boy .50AE caliber, but I don’t really see the purpose of that either.  You are supposed to be using your handgun as a first method of defense, or as they say to “get to your rifle”.  I know it’s a good gun, but I just think that there are better options for most applications.

I saw this the other day on the internet and I thought, what a perfect companion for owners of a tiger striped desert eagle:

Yea it’s just a photoshop… but really, “if you build it they will come” I think definitely holds true again in this case.

Being a Minnesota company as well, I definitely support Magnum Research and would like a few of their other guns.  That new .380 Micro Desert eagle is intriguing, and they have some nice looking rifles based off the Remington 700 platform which I am definitely interested in.


This was on gunbroker and ended this morning with no bids ( big surprise ).  The starting bid was set at $10500 , quit the markup considering a normal Glock 19 goes for around $500.  I think the engraving actually looks pretty nice, but I could definitely do without the gold.   They had 16 Glocks with engraving total, and now they have 11 left of various models.

This is an incredible opportunity to own one of twenty only ever produced gold inlaid Glock pistols. These guns were recently imported from Glock in Austria and all bear the Austria proof marks. All will come in their original Glock box, appropriate number of mags and cleaning kit. Each gun was hand engraved by Glocks only master engraver and Gold inlaid. ***CONSEQUTIVE SERIAL NUMBERS ARE AVAILABLE*******through a unique purchase, we have acquired 16 guns, of which 11 are still available and whose breakdown is as follows: 6 Glock 26 9MM, 1 Glock 22 .40 cal, 1 Glock 17L 9MM and 3 Glock 19 9MM. This auction is for a Glock 19 9MM pistol. This gun (as with all others) will also come with a wood presentation case with a glass lockable top.





Seems like for a while there, every night on the news there were pictures of tables full of confiscated guns from Mexican drug gangs.  Most of the guns ( predictably often said to have been obtained from the US through the gun show “loophole”  or through crooked gun stores ) appeared to be in their factory form.

Every so often though you see guns like these:
