Desert Eagle .429: Semi-Automatic Handgun Hunting



When big-bore revolvers become a big bore…

When you think about hunting big game with a handgun, no doubt you’re thinking of single-shot pistols chambered in rifle calibers, or of big-bore revolvers chambered in more or less the same. Trouble is, putting the kind of firepower necessary for an ethical kill shot through a handgun can result in some pretty brutal recoil. Magnum Research, Inc. has a solution to that quandary in the form of their newest Desert Eagle chambering: the DE429. The .429 caliber is essentially a necked-down .50-cal Desert Eagle AE, and it maintains much of the knockdown power of its .50-caliber daddy.

“If I was a handgun hunter, I would be looking at this, seriously,” says Jim Kimsey, host of AdVANture Hunter. In this video, you’ll find out why many hunters have switched from the big-bore revolvers standard to handgun hunting to the softer-shooting semi-auto. With a long bore axis and the heavy steel construction for which Magnum Research is famous, you’ll get the kind of accuracy and manageability you never expected from a hunting pistol.
