The Desert Eagle is a self-loading pistol that has been produced since 1983 by Israeli Military Industries, in collaboration with Magnum Research inc. of the USA. Designed as a self-loading pistol that can shoot powerful magnum rounds, to this end it was designed with a gas-operated rotating bolt mechanism more akin to self-loading rifles rather than pistols. While it is not the first self-loading pistol capable of firing such powerful rounds (see AutoMag), it is undoubtedly the most well known, and perhaps one of the most famous models of any pistol to appear on screen.

Please note that IMFDB prefers users to identify Desert Eagles by the specific variant, not simply as a "Desert Eagle". Use this page as a guide to familiarize yourself with the differences between the three major variants of the Desert Eagle. If you are having trouble figuring out which variant appears in a particular movie or TV show, always feel free to ask us. Thanks. -MT2008

The Desert Eagle and variants can be seen in the following films, television series, video games, and anime used by the following actors:




  • Type: Pistol
  • Weight: 4.4 lbs (71.4 oz)
  • Length: 10.75 in (27.3 cm)
  • Barrel length(s): 6 in (152.4 mm)
  • Caliber: .357 Magnum, .41 Magnum (discontinued), 44 Magnum, .440 Cor-Bon (discontinued), .50 Action Express
  • Capacity: 9 (.357 Magnum), 8 (.41 and .44 Magnum), 7 (.440 Cor-Bon and .50 Action Express)
  • Fire Modes: Semi-Automatic (Single-Action, Gas Operation)

Desert Eagle Mark I

IMI Desert Eagle Mark I - .357 Magnum
Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark I - .357 Magnum
A satin nickel Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark I - .357 Magnum. The weapon pictured here is an actual movie gun (from the inventory of Weapons Specialists, Ltd. in New York) and has appeared in several motion pictures.
A gold-plated Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark I - .357 Magnum - the gun pictured was Mike Myers' actual gun in the film Austin Powers in Goldmember and has since appeared in several other movies and TV shows.

The Mark I is the earliest variation of the Desert Eagle put into production. First introduced late in 1983 and initially chambered only in .357 Magnum (with the .44 version appearing on the market a few years later), it is distinguishable from later Desert Eagle models by the "teardrop" shape of its safety button. The Mark I's slide release also has only a single step, while the release on the Mark VII and Mark XIX has several steps. This is the most common Desert Eagle model in films made prior to the early 1990s, though it has nonetheless appeared in numerous more recent productions (most notably Austin Powers in Goldmember).

Desert Eagle Mark VII

IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII - .357 Magnum
IMI Desert Eagle Mark VII - .44 Magnum. Note the thickness of the barrel compared to the .357 Desert Eagles seen above.
Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark VII with nickel finish - .44 Magnum
Gold-plated Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark VII - .44 Magnum

The Mark VII was an improved variation of the original Desert Eagle. Introduced in 1990, it featured a re-designed safety lever (which is the most visible external difference from the Mark I) and slide release, as well as an adjustable trigger. Unlike the Mark I, it was available in both .41 Magnum and (briefly) .50 AE. This was the most likely Desert Eagle to be seen in movies made in the 1990s.

Contrary to popular belief, there are virtually no .44 caliber Desert Eagles seen in American made films, armorers usually use only the .357 Magnum or the .50 AE models. All films or television shows shot overseas with foreign armorers have used the .44 Desert Eagle, most notable Canadian Productions.

IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX - .50 AE

Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark XIX, current production model with Picatinny railed barrel - .44 Magnum
Magnum Research (MRI) Desert Eagle Mark XIX, current production model with Picatinny railed barrel and different safety catch - .50 AE

The Mark XIX is the current production model of the Desert Eagle, and the most likely to be seen in movies made since 2000, particularly in its .50 AE version (which is best known as the sidearm of the Agents from The Matrix). It was first introduced in 1995, and its most obvious visual difference from the earlier Desert Eagle models in that it features scope rails over the barrel (it also has taller cocking serrations on the slide). Unlike the earlier Desert Eagle models, the Mark XIX can be switched to any caliber simply by swapping the barrels. Later barrels have full Picatinny rails and a re-designed safety (whose design is a throwback to the safety of the original Mark I).

Also note that the .357 and .44 Magnum versions of the Mark XIX almost always have have a unique "fluted" barrel, which the .50 AE version does not have. Any Desert Eagle Mark XIX that lacks this fluting will most likely be the .50 AE model.

Video Games

Please keep in mind that most video games feature Desert Eagles with a 7-round magazine, however not all those pistols are modeled after the .50 AE Mark XIX. Determine the correct variant by looking at the safety and the barrel, not by the (often incorrect) magazine size.
