The Desert Eagle is a sidearm developed by IMI Magnum Express, which has since been popularized by the media as an extremely powerful handgun.
In the 1980s Magnum Research began working with IMI to create a very powerful pistol, the resulting models chambering nothing smaller than a .357 Magnum. Modern Desert Eagles fire .50 AE, and the recoil is so powerful it can break a person's arm if not held correctly. The Desert Eagle is designed in some ways like a sawed-off rifle.
Sarah Hardy wanted to initially test large-caliber darts for Type-7 use, thus she began modifying Desert Eagles for use with Ouroboros. While the test was successful she's since moved on to the FN Five-seveN.
