As most of you probably already know, Minnesota’s Magnum Research has been plugging away for years trying to create a scaled-down version of their iconic hand howitzer that can maintain a market appeal.
While they haven’t been having much luck on that front so far, it looks as though they may finally have hit the sweet spot with their latest kick at the ball:
Magnum Research has delivered a winner with its recent Baby Desert Eagle III in 9mm.
Having previously had an opportunity to put the .40-caliber polymer-framed version of the Baby Desert Eagle from Israeli Weapons Industries through its paces early in 2016, when an all-steel version of this pistol in 9mm showed up unexpectedly, I didn’t waste time gathering ammunition and heading to the range. After all, here was a rare opportunity to test two versions of the same pistol, in different calibers, just to see how well they stacked up to one another — and the publicity. What might have been a boring experience the second time around was actually rather revealing.
Magnum Research, owned by Kahr Arms, imports IWI’s Baby Desert Eagle. The gun is no lightweight, hitting the scale at 38.6 ounces (unloaded). Out of the box, it feels a bit heavy, but it is a stout pistol that gives the immediate impression that it won’t break when the going gets tough.
