New Baby Desert Eagle by Magnum Research
Terry Nelson 09.15.20
Over the last few years, I would occasionally have a small frame Desert Eagle handgun show up on the range during a concealed-carry class and always admired the compact Eagle. Recently Magnum Research announced exciting news for Baby Eagle fans with the return of these exceptional pistols to the market. In a recent press release Magnum Research describes the new model Eagle.
“The Baby Eagle has been an icon of the shooting world since the introduction of its ancestor, the Jericho pistol, in the 1980s. The Baby Eagle III series is the latest revision of the Magnum Research imported handgun, manufactured in Israel by BUL Transmark. The Baby Eagle III series steel frame guns feature the slimmest grip ever offered on a Baby Eagle handgun, making its double-stack frame easy to grip by any shooter. It also features a smoother profile than previous models, adding to the already sleek Baby Eagle appearance. The steel frame guns will be offered in 9mm and 45 ACP. Polymer framed models will also be available in 9mm and 40 S&W. Both steel and polymer guns will be offered in the full and semi-compact sizes. Joby Goerges, Director of Manufacturing and Engineering with Magnum Research, stated that the Baby Eagle ‘continues to be in high demand, and is very popular with fans. It is well known from appearances in popular movies, television shows, and video games. This gives the Baby Eagle a huge fan base, and in particular feeds big demand among younger shooters.’ Like its big brother, the Desert Eagle, the Baby Eagle is an icon of both popular culture and the shooting community.”
Reliable, Accurate, and Easy Shooting
“The Baby Eagle III series is well known in the shooting world for its exceptional shooting characteristics. All Baby Eagles are valued for their proven reliability. In addition, the full-length dust cover and weight of the steel guns make them very soft shooting. Each gun is manufactured on high precision modern machinery, making them very accurate. The double-stacked magazines provide extra ammo capacity just in case it is needed. Owning a Baby Eagle III means investing in a proven platform, with exceptional reliability, that will deliver performance on every trip to the range. MSRP starts at $646.”
If the new Baby Eagle III series is anything like the small frame Desert Eagle of the past, I am sure they will be sought after in today’s concealed carry and defensive pistol market. Check out the Magnum Research company at Magnum Research.com
