Should you ever find yourself surrounded by Zombies or other unworldly forces, the new Magnum Research Mark XIX Apocalyptic Desert Eagle certainly makes a good defense. The new Cerakote distressed matte white finish should intimidate even the wildest of beasts and evil undead.

For shooting enthusiasts who do not really worry about the apocalypse, this new Mark XIX Desert Eagle distressed white finish earns kudos for the "cool factor". The new Cerakote finish consists of a multi-step process which involves a high-temperature ceramic coating that holds up under normal use. It has been tested for durability and has proven to be very tough.

The Apocalyptic Desert Eagle comes in two calibers: .50 AE and .44 Mag. The .50 AE is a gas-operated, semi-automatic pistol with a 7-round capacity. The .44 Mag. has an 8-round capacity. Both guns measure 10.75 inches in length with 6-inch barrels. Slide width is 1.25-inches, height is 6.25 inches and the weight with an empty magazine is approximately 4 pounds, 5.8 ounces in .50 AE, and 4 pounds, 6.6 ounces in the .44 Mag. It has a trigger reach of 2.75 inches and a sight radius of 8.5 inches with the 6-inch barrel.
The construction of the Desert Eagle utilizes the latest CNC machine technology providing exacting specifications with tight tolerances creating a work of art in a precision firearm. This Desert Eagle features a G10 grip. The G10 material is a high-pressure thermoset plastic laminate consisting of multiple layers of woven fiberglass mesh cloth impregnated with an epoxy resin binder. It is anatomically formed and provides an ideal hand seating angle for two-handed shooting allowing for comfortable, rapid and accurate firing. The Weaver style accessory rail easily allows for aftermarket optics and scope rings.

The MSRP on the new Apocalyptic white matte distressed pattern for the Mark XIX Desert Eagle is $1895 for the DE44WMD and $1922 for the DE50WMD.For more information about Magnum Research products, visit www.magnumresearch.com.
