Meet the Viking L5 Deagle!

Magnum Research, which is owned by Kahr, has a new Desert Eagle just in time for the NRA Show. Dubbed the Viking L5, it is a Mark XIX L5 in .50 AE that features a 5-inch barrel with an integral muzzle brake– but is still likely to pack a wallop when it comes to recoil.

The black frame is hard coat anodized and “has a weathered finish that is hand distressed to resemble ancient blades, and protected by a clear coat finish to be both unique and durable,” hence the Nordic name.

We must admit though, it does have a very Mad Max vibe to it, even though it weighs about four pounds.

MSRP is $3007. Why not $2,999? We have no idea.
