I ordered a Desert Eagle in this caliber earlier in the week. It had a 6" chromed barrel and was $1195- the last one. Unfortunately, it was sold before the catalog I saw it in ever came out. I know the gun was discontinued by Magnum Research, but I e-mailed Corbon and they claim they will still manufacture ammo for it. I am checking with other dealers to see if their distributors have any left in stock. Has anyone shot a Desert Eagle in this caliber? I know it is the 50 AE necked down to a 44 bullet. How does its power compare to other big bore handgun rounds like the 50 AE, 45 Win Mag, 475 Wildey, 454 Casull, 475 Linebaugh?
