Extended Magazine for a Desert Eagle

I have a friend who asked me if there was anyone that makes extended magazines for the Desert Eagle (.44mag to be specific). Like 20 to 30 rounds. (Didn't ask him why he wanted it. Maybe I should? ) I checked around and couldn't find any source. Anyone here seen anything like that?

I'm sure nothing like that has ever been made.

As far as I know, only factory-spec magazines were ever made, and no one even made a one or two extra shot mag.

I wonder what someone would want 20-30 .44 mags for? I bet that would get some envious looks at the range!

There was a 10 round 44 Magnum Desert Eagle magazine made, I am not sure about 50 AE. I am looking for an extended 50 AE mag ATM.

I havent seen any, you'd think some company would be all over that, since apparently no one makes them, o well

Saw a 10rnd .44 mag

at a show a couple weeks back. No maker name, no marking of any kind. Finish was silver. Have no idea if it worked or not.

a little old...

Well, as a matter of fact, there are 10 round 357 magazines. I made some myself.

I put a vid on youtube.

Why bother with a 10rnd .357 Mag, when the standard mag holds 9?

Why not? 1 more round. That could possibly be the difference between life and death.

And it only took me a couple of minutes to modify. I'm sure you could do anymore unless you actually lengthened the mag. MAYBE try a stronger spring, but I don't know.
