Magnum Research Desert Eagle 1911.......hmmmmmmm
Well I finally got my XDM sold, and now I'm looking for a new piece. I don't have any 1911's, and I figure it's about time I got one. To be honest I would like one in 9mm :embarassed:.....I know I know. But I have never shot a 45, and don't really know what it's like. I actually sold my XDM 40 because I was going to go 9mm, less snap, and mainly cheaper ammo. But I handled the 40 S&W just fine.
Anyway, I was looking at all the 1911's and the shop guy said "hey, check out this beauty, and it's CHEAP for a good gun." It was the Desert Eagle 1911, and boy is she pretty. I will have to say at around $700 it sure did look like a nice gun, but I don't know a lot about 1911's. And this is a new gun, would it be better to stay away from such a new design from MR? Does anyone have any experience with this pistol yet?
TBH, the Kimber Pro Carry II with night sights and tactical rail fit my hand like it was made specifically for it, I couldn't put it down, and it almost went home with me. But they only had it in 45 ACP, and I am giving myself headaches deciding whether or not to get a 9mm or 45......
