For some shooters handling has always been an issue with the big Desert Eagles. The new Desert Eagle L models are about 350 grams lighter than their standard counterpart. That's a big improvement for the handling of the pistol.
The L5 being chambered in .357 Magnum and feeding through 9-rounds magazines, while the L6 model fires the .50 Action Express round and uses a 7-shots magazine – are slightly lightened and shortened variants of the design, featuring an integrated compensator to reduce recoil and muzzle climb due to the heavy caliber: the Desert Eagle L5 is just over 25 centimeters long, while the L6 is around 27 centimeters long.
