I am looking for a Desert Eagle 440 cor-bon barrel. If anyone has one or knows of someone else who owns one that would consider selling it I'd love to talk to you. I am looking for one in the best shape possible. Of course new or slightly used is best. I am not looking for a reamed 44 barrel but an actual 440 6 inch barrel. Looking forward to hearing from anyone on this topic so feel free to contact me any way at any time. Thank you for your time. SH

I seem to recall that some Cor-Bon chambered barrels may be available from www.sarcoinc.com or from Firedragon... Ask at: efkfiredragon.com

I would contact the importer or manufacturer of the Desert Eagle; if anybody knows who makes aftermarket barrels for the handgun, they would.

Otherwise, look in postings that I have made in other threads for a LARGE listing of gun parts sources.

Thank you for your post. So far no original 440 corbon barrels have

been located. I'm looking for a 6" version in any color from gold to

blue gun. If anyone knows of one out there, I'll give you $100 just

for getting me in touch with a person who owns the piece if I'm

successful in purchasing it. So you make $100 just for finding the

piece for me even if you don't own it. Again the only catch is that

I need to be able to purchase the piece from whoever you lead me to.

Let's work together and find an original 440 Corbon barrel 6 inches

in length for XIX Desert Eagle. Thanks for reading and taking the time.

You may be looking for a very specialized item that simply doesn't exist on the market, and may not for years to come. Possibly never.

As anxious for the item that you are and for what you are willing to pay to track it down, I would look into having the item custom-made. I would contact the manufacturer or importer of the Desert Eagle on this to see if they would be willing to do it or would know somebody who would.

Otherwise, if you haven't checked through this list already, as referenced above and listed below, you might try all of them. But to be honest, rather than spend countless hours on the internet and with phone calls, I would look into having the item you want custom-made, although any custom-made major handgun part is by no means cheap.

Numrich/Gun Parts Corp. doesn't list all the parts they have in stock on their website; you might contact them for what you need at help@gunpartscorp.com.

If you still don't have any luck with them try:

Websites that may have gun parts:

www.auctionarms.com

www.gunbroker.com

www.ArmsBid.com

www.gunsamerica.com

www.armchairgunshow.com

www.gunlistonline.com

www.gunpurchase.com

www.gunshowonthenet.com

www.gunsinternational.com

www.SpokaneGunAuction.com

eBay (go to GUNSURPLUSPARTS, I think)

You might also find a broken or inoperable "parts gun" for sale on one of these websites, which can be cannibalized for the parts you need. You can sell the remaining parts on the internet, or this forum's host. Re-post here if you aren't familiar with purchasing guns across state lines.

The manufacturer offered the 440 Cor-Bon in barrel lengths of 6" and 10" and in a limited production run...meaning there are few floating around in the public market place...such a barrel would come from a parted out gun if only an ORIGINAL part is desired. The Magnum Reasearch web page suggests that parts are available for all versions of this pistol...and..as I understand it Kahr bought the company and is now in control of the magnum reasearch product line. You may want to contact Kahr to see if this is a valid thought..If the part is not availabe,then you may be able to get the manufacturer to make you one via their Custom Shop..FWIW, the 440 CorBon is based on the 50 AE case bottlenecked down to 44 caliber...first thoughts suggest that a.44 magnum barrelmay be rechambered to the larger dia case of the 50 AE....but...LENGTH suggests that the 44 Mag chamber won't clean out....There are a few companies that make chamber fillers to allow..EXAMPLE the .7.62 nato to be fired ina 30-06 barrel by using and insert to support the shoulder of the shorter case..this modification may be possible if you come to the point of rechambering a .44 mag barrel...In the past parts were manufactured by SACO in Maine and by IMI in Isreal possible sources of parts..Good parts hunting......

My name is Scott and I have a brand new 440 Cor-Bon barrel if anyone is interested. Please call me at 615-569-5050. I also have a box of unused 440 ammo to go with it. This is one of only 7 that I'm told are in the USA. Feel free to call anytime as I never sleep. The barrel is stamped from magnum research .440 and will be happy to send pictures.

Scott, if you go back to the original posting(2012), then you can click on the MESSAGE block at the lower left and contact the guy who wants it directly. That may get to him better than hoping he reads this forum again
