Pomona, NY – The manufacturing ingenuity behind USA based, Magnum Research, Inc. (MRI) has been turning heads for decades.

Introducing the Mark XIX Desert Eagle .50AE and .44 Magnum in a new high temperature ceramic Cerakote™ coating called Burnt Bronze.

“We took our most popular and iconic handgun, the Desert Eagle, and gave it a commanding new look” says Frank Harris, VP of Sales and Marketing. “The Desert Eagle has always been considered a bit of a muscle gun, but now, with the Burnt Bronze Cerakote coating, it brings intimidating to an entirely new level.”
The Cerakote coating is a multi-step process which results in a high temperature ceramic coating that holds up well under normal use. The Burnt Bronze model has attractive black appointments which gives the pistol even more appeal.
