Hmm, another specialty round? For the amount of money a DE cost, just get a .50ae, that’s what I did.


I had 2 of them in 50ae.


LonewolfMcQuade, et al:

I met a guy at a gun show one time who was having great difficulty selling his Desert Eagle. The gun looked great, his price (under $1,000), seemed reasonable. But, his gun was in the caliber .440 Corbon. Not exactly a common caliber.

And no, I did not buy it (either).

I am a big believer in sticking with well-established, common calibers.

For some reason, I could not make use of the link provided. What caliber will this new DE be in?


Judging from the price of the ammunition, reloading dies for this cartridge will soon be available.
Then its popularity should take off.




Thanks, LonewolfMcQuade.

Hmmm, that sounds like .44 magnum (at least in diameter).


I believe it’s a necked down 50ae case with a 44 mag bullet


should have bought it…it is worth way more now because they are rare pistols…



I am not really a gun collector. All my guns have to serve a purpose - which means, I have to be able to find ammo for all of them relatively easily.

But, best of luck to those who do choose to collect guns. I certainly appreciate rare and beautiful guns, I just don’t want to spend my money on them in that way.


Thanks for the info, LonewolfMcQuade.

So, is this new .429 caliber trying to mimic the .44 mag? Certainly a worthy cause!


DESERT eagle already comes in 44 mag. I think the 429 is the the 44 mag on steroids.



Wow! I am liking this!

Now, let’s see how well it is received.



429 shoots 44 mag bullet at 1600fps…


And I was thinking my shoulder had recovered from 50 and 44 mag, now I will try the steroid loading spoken about above. Its just a shoulder joint, I have to replace the prosthesis again. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
