Check ebay I found good deals on Barrels and Mags .For my Desert eagle . $200 for a 50 Ae barrel and mags brand new . And I've seen some Aluminum grips and Punisher grips on Ebay .If you haven't shot it yet you may want to then figure out grips . I ended up with Houges on mine . More rubber with finger groves helps . But you may be going looks and thas a awesome looking piece for sure .

Get some nice wood grips and watch them split. The platform is not conducive to a long life for thin wooden grips.

^ Those would be fantastic grips for a gun that's never fired. For a DE that's going to be shot, Hogue finger-grooves are the way to go.

no that is dark walnut.

I was more interested in something like this. the dark red would look great with the burnt bronze.

My first DEP came with the laser-etched fancy wood grips - but I thought them to be a bit too slick (while they were actually slimmer in feel) to the Hogue finger-notch grips I replaced them with.

While the fancy wood grips are beautiful, mine have a small chip missing on one side.

I wasn't kidding. Do some more research.

Wood grips turn into kindling with a 44, splinters with a 50. There just isn't enough room for strong enough wood.

Where did you get that burnt bronze done if it wasn't stock?

Ouch, you sure you want that?

The Hogue is what I tell EVERYONE to get since they are soft and have the finger grooves, grips without the grooves just feel large in my hand.

You should try magnum research. They have a store online and they get new things in all the time. They might have wooden grips, but I have not seen too many third party grips like what you are looking for because the Deagle is not as popular as certain other handguns and as such many will not waste their money making a nice set of wood grips for it.

Nodaedul: Many gunstores sell the Deagle in Burnt Bronze. It is a way of marketing the firearm that nobody can afford to own since ammo is nearly $1.00 a shot or more in some cases and unless you reload (Which Magnum Research says to not do) you end up having a nice looking gun that never gets shot. But at least you have a Desert Eagle in your possession...

Yea you have to reload. I got a Lee hand press and learned reloading just for .50AE which costs me 40c per round reusing brass and firing plated bullets. I really want my black old anvil refinished to one of these more exciting colors. I use the Hogue finger groove grip by the way. Makes it a lot easier to shoot.

I'm actually partial to the "old anvil" look of the finish on my DE.

I have stilly to thank for my recent affair with the Desert Eagle. He let me shoot his a few months ago, and from that point on there was no looking back. I found a decent used one that looked good and snatched it up.

I went with the Hogue grips on mine.
