Magnum Research has launched a new lightweight version of the classic Israeli-designed Desert Eagle pistol, the new L6 Desert Eagle which comes with an all black finish, a 6-inch barrel and an integral muzzle brake. This new version of the Desert Eagle also comes with top and bottom sections of M1913 Picatinny rail to make adding accessories and optics more convenient. The original Desert Eagle handgun family has always been known for its size and heft, which is why the new L6 was designed with weight reduction in mind. These new pistols which are offered in all of the classic Desert Eagle pistol chamberings like .50AE, and .357 Mag. Despite being chambered in these heavy-hitting calibers, the L6 is still approximately 1 pound lighter than the original model. This weight reduction is also part of the reason the new L6 includes an integrated compensator for better recoil management because of the lighter weight. The L6 has a slide-mounted safety and 7-round magazine.
