    Thank you for the information. :) If this doesn't go well, I will consider that for my next approach. I now have all tooling and the project is loaded, hammer cocked and safety off... just need...

    That is a Mk XIX unless the barrel has been changed. The Mk VII .50's didn't have the the barrel stamped with caliber, as it was still on the slide. Of course there could always be transition...

    Excellent. Thank you for taking and posting these Gas Cylinder measurements.

    In my experience, with two Desert Eagles, five thousandths clearance will work with rounds like Speer/MRI, Federal,...

    Really they aren't that complicated relative to the simple machining.

    They are fairly hard, but I don't know the material, and I haven't cut one in half and then tested for hardness to see if it...

    Someone on another forum asked about where the barrels were made... by IWI, or made in the US.
    They are "current production" I suppose, and there is no indication of foreign manufacture on the...

    I bought my Desert Eagle some 23 years ago. I didn't know what limp-wristing was back then, but with the explosion of the internet, I began to...

    Well this is positive. I sent a one page outline of the testing and results to Magnum Research asking them to reconsider testing the barrel without my firearm.

    Thank you for the reply.
    The fact that this barrel has the same issue on a another Desert Eagle should be enough for them to take the barrel back at least to check it. Maybe then, if it didn't have...

    It will now fire any factory ammo I have. Is this good? Not really. Turns out my first suspicion was correct.

    Got a minute to try something else.
    I found the lowest power/velocity rounds I have are the Armscor USA 300gr, at 1200fps. I fired them in my original barrel with no issue, as usual. I...

    Resolution or not, at least this can be available for others to find should they have similar issues.

    Well, Magnum Research won't test the barrel or take it back without my firearm.
