There was some threads started about Desert Eagle (Baby) and .44 Magnum (Colts Anaconda) !!!!!
So I had to break out my Desert Eagle .44 Magnum -- its an older version Made by IMI (Israel Military Industries) made in Israel ( some where made in Maine -- Now they are produced in Minnesota) -- Mine is a Mark VII ( the safety levers look like hooks, Mark I are teardrop shaped).

Seems the .44 magazine and .41 are interchangeable, at least mine are, some are marked .44 and some are marked .41, I bought some used magazines and they actually had some .44 Magnum Corbon ammunition loaded -- excellent score that day.

I was reloading prior to buying my Desert Eagle, 19 Grains of H110 and a 240 Grain bullet, makes the firearm fun to shoot -- 18 grains will eject the round, but would not cycle the next round from the magazine.

Sorry to say its been placed at the bottom of my safe -- I lent it to a co-worker for his New Years Day Family gathering a couple of years ago -- doesn’t get much action these days.

Still Excellent to have !!!!!!!!!!

Years ago I was at the range on a busy day -- no room on the pistol range; I took it out to the 50 yard rifle range -- shot some test groups -- people came over to see the shotgun I was using. No -- just me and my Desert Eagle !!!!!!!

I personally think the Mark 7's were the best version of the Desert Eagle.
The VII introduced the modifications that later became the X1X platform for all. I loaded up over 1k rounds of .44 mag and .357 mag just for my Desert Eagle that I had purchased. Unlike all the others I have had in the past, this one was a POS. Former owners shot lead through it and effectively ruined both.
I have been on the hunt for a .357 mag, .41 mag, and .44 mag multi-caliber version off and on. I seem to only find the later type (without .41 mag). I wouldn't mind getting a .50 A.E. though.
Sad thing is, I don't even have a .357 mag now, and my only .44 mag is a 1967 Ruger 44 mag fingergroove sporter carbine in mint condition. It isn't going to be shot. So, I wait... :-)
