What Is My Desert Eagle Worth?

Historical Context

Magnum Research Inc. designed and developed the Desert Eagle. The design was further refined by and manufactured by Israel Military Industries, until 1995, when the manufacturing contract was shifted to Saco Defense, in Saco, Maine. In 1998, MRI moved manufacturing back to IMI, which later commercialized its small arms branch under the name Israel Weapon Industries.

The Desert Eagle, also known as Deagle, is known for chambering the .50 Action Express, the largest centerfire cartridge of any magazine-fed, self-loading pistol. The Desert Eagle has been featured in featured in several television shows, video games and films such as, Deadpool, The Austin Powers trilogy and The Matrix trilogy.

Determining Value

A major factor in determining value for any firearm comes from the condition of the gun. If it is in mint condition with little finish wear from handling, the gun can retain a good portion of its retail value. If more usage is apparent and the gun has scuffs, dents or scratches on the slide or polymer lower, the value will lower with each imperfection. Same goes with the metal parts, the more scratches and faded bluing finish that becomes present on the gun from handling and usage can greatly diminish its value. The takeaway is that as the condition of the firearm worsens, the less it will be worth when re-sold.

A major factor for determining value for a Desert Eagle lies in the caliber that it is chambered in. The Desert Eagle can be chambered in a wide variety of calibers, however the most common are .50 AE and .44 Mag. The .50 AE Desert Eagles are more valuable than the .44 Mag variants, please keep that in mind when seeking an appraisal.
