The Baby Desert Eagles are the same guns that Charles Daly used to import as the JERICHO pistols. Very nice guns and reliable. Magnum Reasearch also makes two versions of the Desert Eagle 1911 in 45acp.
You wouldn't catch me dead clutching to a 50AE Full Size Desert Eagle. The 45acp is quite sufficient to use for anything the 50AE would be used for and a 10mm has velocity beyond what most people's dreams. Even a 40S&W has velocity and near mass to get things done. If someone wants to carry the boat anchor that is their choice and I'm okay with that. I feed my 45s and know how the cost is in "normal" times. The lack of availability and current costs of 50AE would and do keep me away.
