Every Gun Tells A Story. Here’s Magnum Research Desert Eagle‘s Story.
Magnum Research Inc. designed and developed the Desert Eagle between 1979 and 1982. Between 1982 and 1995, Israel Military Industries further refined and manufactured the pistols. Saco Defense took over manufacturing in 1995, but Magnum Research switched back to Israel Military Industries in 1998. Israel Weapon Industries manufactured these guns between 2005 and 2009. Magnum Research Inc. has been the manufacturer since 2009.
Kahr Arms acquired Magnum Research Inc. in 2010, but manufacturing still occurs at the Magnum facility in Pillager, MN.
The Desert Eagle has appeared in hundreds of movies, T.V. shows and video games. According to leadership at Magnum Research, the commercial success of the pistol can largely be attributed to the company actively soliciting product placements in movies. Before the turn of the millennium, you might have recognized the Desert Eagle in Eraser, Rambo III, and the gun in The Matrix that took down Neo himself.
