It is a 93 model made in Israel. For us in CA these are hard to get since they are on not on the DOJ approved list. The only way we can get them is if someone who bought them before the ban sells them and that is rare. Someone local has one for sale and I was thinking about picking it up just because it is one of the most badass hand guns to me. It isn't a very practical gun and expensive to shoot but it's a gun that is always a conversation piece. I have been told that by a lot of people that 'You haven't live until you've fired a Desert Eagle' What are your thoughts on this gun? Much appreciated.. **PIC** of the gun I am thinking of buying..
