Here we have an early example of IMI manufactured "Jericho 941fs" Rebranded as the "Desert Eagle" & imported by Magnum Research, then again by CAI (Not sure on the reason/history of the double import mark) We know this batch was not commercial due to the standard Israeli lanyard modification for service weapons.  

IMI is Israeli Military Industries - MFG primary for Military.
IWI is Israeli Weapons Industries - MFG primary for Commercial.
Magnum Research - Eventually evolved into its own MFG & Brand.

The original Jericho 941 was modeled on the well-respected CZ-75 pistol. Using a well-tested design allowed IMI to avoid the teething problems most new pistol designs experience, and subcontracting much of the basic fabrication work to Tanfoglio allowed IMI to quickly and economically put into production a pistol that would have enough Israeli content to satisfy government contract requirements.

A notable difference is the CZ-75 is traditionally rifled, while the Jericho 941 features a polygonal barrel

Polygonal rifling is a type of gun barrel rifling where the traditional sharp-edged "lands and grooves" are replaced by less pronounced "hills and valleys", so the barrel bore has a polygonal profile. Polygonal riflings with a larger number of edges have shallower corners, which provide a better gas seal.

What many consider an improvement over the standard 941 and more compact than the 941F, the 941FS features a frame-mounted thumb safety for faster disengagement and shorter slide for faster handling and ease of concealment.  Like the 941 and 941F, the 941FS features all-steel construction and a single/double action trigger system.

These pistols are known for their legendary reliability and have proven themselves to be an excellent choice for defensive use.
