(Silahlar) Desert Eagle, İsrail yapımı yarı-otomatik bir tabancadır. 357'lik, 41'lik, 44'luk, 440 Cor-bon ve 50 AE kalibrelik mermi kullanan modelleri bulunur. 357 kalibrelik versiyonu 9,41'lik ve 44'lüğü 8, 440 Cor-bon ve 50AE (action express) kullanan modelide 7 mermi alır. Kullandığı mermilerden dolayı çok güçlü bir tabancadır ancak 50AE kullanan versiyonun geri tepmesinin yüksek olması, silahın oldukça ağır ve büyük olması nedeniyle kullanışlı değildir.Bu silahın çeşitli ağırlıkları vardır.1-2 kg arasındaki çeşitleri silahın gerçekten kuvvetli olduğu gösteriyor. Ancak geri tepmesinin yüksek oluşu sadece 50AE kullanan versiyonunda geçerlidir, özellikle birçok silah kullanıcısı 357.'lik versiyonun geri tepmesinin standart 9mm tabancalardan daha az olduğunu söylemektedirler. Bu sebeplerden dolayı hiçbir ordu ve polis gücü tarafından kullanılmaz. Zaten televizyon programları, filmler ve video oyunları sayesinde ünlü olmuş; özellikle de çok büyük ve ağır olması nedeniyle kullanışlı olmayan bir silahtır
