Magnum Research Inc. (MRI) is a privately held corporation based in Fridley, Minnesota. The majority owners, Jim Skildum (President and CEO) and John Risdall (Chairman and COO), have been associated with the company since its founding in 1979. Magnum Research has produced several products that enjoy widespread recognition in popular culture and has established a corporate website documenting these appearances.[1]

Products Edit

MRI was responsible for the design and development of the Desert Eagle pistol. The design was refined and the actual pistols were manufactured by Israel Military Industries until 1995, when MRI shifted the manufacturing contract to Saco Defense in Saco, Maine. In 2000 MRI moved manufacturing back to IMI, which later reorganized under the name Israel Weapon Industries. Both Saco and IMI/IWI were strictly contractors: all of the intellectual property, including patents, copyrights and trademarks are the property of Magnum Research.

Magnum Research also imports the IMI/IWI Jericho 941 series of pistols under the Baby Eagle name. For a time they also imported the Barak SP-21 pistol, but it is no longer offered. Other products include the BFR series of single-action magnum revolvers and the Mountain Eagle and MagnumLite rifles.
