Greeley, PA -(AmmoLand.com)- Should you ever find yourself surrounded by Zombies or other unworldly forces, the new Magnum Research Mark XIX Apocalyptic Desert Eagle may very well be your best defense.

The new Cerakote distressed matte white finish would intimidate even the most wild of beasts and evil immortals.

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

The Apocalyptic Desert Eagle comes in two calibers: .50 AE and .44 Magnum. The .50 AE is a gas-operated, semi-automatic pistol with a 7-round capacity. The .44 Magnum has an 8-round capacity. Both guns measure 10.75” in length with a 6” barrel. Slide width is 1.25”, height 6.25” and the weight with an empty magazine is approximately 4 lbs. 5.8 oz. in .50 AE, and 4 lbs. 6.6 oz. in the .44 Mag. It has a trigger reach of 2.75” and a sight radius of 8.5” with the 6” 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.

If you caught them lined up, you could get 7 or 8 with one shot. I suggest a scope as well.

As I agree, it probably isn’t the best weapon in a Zombie attack, but still wouldn’t mine owning a 50ae model

Can anyone explain what exercises I will have to do before attempting to fire this firearm? Is a second person necessary to help hold it?

Big powerful gun, but I fail to see how this will help during a zombie apocalypse. 7 rounds? I will still be shooting my glock when you have changed mags TWICE.
