Does anyone know the differance between the Desert Eagle Mark XIX and Mark VII in .50 A.E.? Which is the one to have? I have a chance to buy a Mark VII.

The Mark 19 is the new model and the 7 is the old. I own a .44 Mag Mark 7 and love it. I have also shot a .50AE Mark 19 and love it too. The 19 has some new features that are nice, but I can live without for the price difference. The 19 allows easy, but expensive, caliber changes. It also has a built in scope rail on the barrel, which the 7 doesn't. You can find the 7's at a good price, because people are clearing out the old for the new. I think they are both great guns. It just depends on what you want and how much your willing to pay. fuatos

Thanks for the info guys. One thing I noticed about the Mark VII I was looking at is that it had a scope rail on it and I wonder if came that way or if someone has modified it. I'm thinking of trading a preban Mini-14 in stainless with factory folding stock. I know the Mark VII is used but it appears to be in very good condition as is my Mini-14. Would it be a good trade?

Sound like a good trade to me, although I hope you still have at least one tactical carbine on hand. For practicality reasons, the big DE is more a novelty, unless your local laws allow it for hunting use. I used to own a .50 (I think all the .50's were/are Mark 19s) & it was a riot to shoot. Also made a great pig weapon (the 4 legged type.) But alas, at $30 for 20 rounds I sold it to someone who wanted it worse than I wanted to keep it. Now I'm saving for one of Tony's uppers - go figure.
