Desert Eagle L5



Weighing in at almost 5 pounds, the stout Desert Eagle has always demanded two-fisted handling. Now, Magnum Research is proud to introduce two new models in a lighter weight version which will make a noticeable difference when handling the pistol – albeit two hands are still recommended for most shooters. The Desert Eagle L5 and the L6 weigh in almost a pound or 2 pounds lighter than other similar Desert Eagle products.

The new Mark XIX L5 in .357 Magnum is offered with an all new 5-inch barrel length and features a hard-coat anodized black aluminum frame, black carbon steel slide and barrel, and Hogue® finger groove rubber grips. The pistol also has Magnum Research’s widely popular integral muzzle brake. The new lighter version of this popular Desert Eagle .357 is 3 pounds 1.6 oz. which also makes it New York State compliant. Overall length is 9.75”, height is 6.25” and the slide width is 1.25”. The DE357L5IMB comes with one 9-round magazine.

Magnum Research also addressed the need for a lighter weight Desert Eagle in their popular .50 AE model. The Mark XIX L6 weighs just 3 pounds 7 oz. – nearly 12 oz. lighter than other similar Desert Eagle models. It is offered with a hard-coat anodized black aluminum frame with a stainless steel slide and integral muzzle break barrel, attractive black appointments and features a picatinny rail on the frame. Overall length is 10.75”, height is 6.25”, and the slide width is 1.25”. The single action pistol has a 4-pound trigger pull. The L6 ships with one 7-round magazine. The new lightweight Desert Eagles take the same magazines as the current steel models.
